    Moved windows 7 to other computer. How to transfer the license for the same?

    I was using original windows 7 Home Premium on my laptop but, in last few days its performance decreased to a large extent and it became useless for me so I transferred it to my Desktop computer. I just want to know the procedure to transfer the license to the desktop computer.

    You would only be able to transfer the license of windows 7 to other computer, if you are using the retail version. OEM licenses are not transferable so if you are using the OEM license then you won't be able to transfer the license. Retail license users can reactive their license through Telephone.To do the same, click on "Start" button and type "slui.exe 4". After that hit on "Enter" button. Now select your country from the list and then use the Phone Activation method. A real person will handle your issue and will resolve the same.

    Hi.
    If the Windows 7 is OEM you will not be able to transfer the licenses because it wont get activate but if it is a retail then you can easily transfer the licenses in this issue you need to format the old machine first and then install in the new machine and after installation you need to call microsoft Customer support to activate the product.

    If you have trouble activating Windows 7 open the Windows Activation Wizard while in Windows 7 to use the phone and activate Windows:
    1. When you reach the desktop click Start, then in the Search box type: slui.exe 4
    2. Press Enter on your Keyboard
    3. Select your Country.
    4. Select the Phone Activation option, then call the number given and hold for a real person.


    Thank you.
