  1. Can VirtualBox Win10 use my Win7 license key?


    I've never used VirtualBox before. I'm expecting that installing a Windows 10 instance will require a license key, correct? If so, can my current Windows 7 license key be used? If I use it there, and I ultimately decide to upgrade my Windows 7 installation to Windows 10, will that cause any problems? Will I need another license key?

    Thanks.

    :)

  4. Can VirtualBox Win10 use my Win7 license key?

    Hello, can I use the win10 key to activate mny win7?

    Btw, does the program u suggested me detect only the win7 key (if there is) or it should detect the win10 key as well?

    Also, I upgraded from win7 to 10, so doesn't it count as "u can downgrade to win7"?
