You should be able to contact Intuit and ask them for the license.

You will need your customer number when you call them so they can issue your key back to you. Also, when you try to activate QuickBooks on the second install, you will likely have to call their phone line to activate. They will do that, and give you an activation number that you can use with subsequent installs.

Make sure you are using QB V2010 or V2011 as earlier versions do not work well or even work at all in Windows 7.

Thank you and good luck with upgrading to Windows 7. I have the newest version of QuickBooks running well on my Windows 7 Pro ThinkPad.  ... Thinkpads_User
