Default Vista Retail Version

If I buy a retail version of Home Premium, will I be able to install it on more than one computer at a time? Because I know for XP I could install it for a certain amount of times until I needed a new key.

I kinda need to know by tonight, thanks.

You can but it is harder to call M$ about Activating Vista than it is for XP. So if you use up all your activations by installing it on multiple PC's, chances are you might not be able to activate it again on your PC.

Plus if i am not mistaken M$ has actually limited Retail versions. You can only actiavte them twice before they ask for calling confirmation.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
