How to Fix license for virtual machine on Windows 10?
- Hi Guy
I am Dave, an Independent Advisor, I will help you with this . . .
Officially Microsoft indicate that for each installation on a PC, whether Windows 10 is installed on a hard drive or on a VM, you would need a separate licence for each installation, even if they are on the same PC . . .

thanks for the update
so the question would be : most suppliers ship/provide dev editions to familiarize yourself
so i expected that windows dev. vm would also let you do that…
but this license is limited to 20 days
best regards, Guy

- Hi przytula
The best option may be to phone Microsoft Support in your local area and get clarification from them, if you would only be using that on an intermittent basis, there may be no problem, that may be the best thing to do, on Community we are just users and they would give you a more definitive understanding of the licence requirements in your case . . .
