I have a company that has approached me to help them upgrade about 25 computers. My question is in regards to licensing. The original computers were purchased from HP about 4 years ago with Windows 10 Pro 64bit factory installed. When they got them, they downgraded them to Windows 7 Pro 32bit with Microsoft Open License they purchased from Microsoft. They have to use 32bit because of a legacy app that they still use.
If they upgrade to Windows 10 Pro 32bit on each machine, obviously we will have to purchase it from Microsoft as an Open License. I know what they are going to ask me so I want to ask before they do: Putting the machine back to Windows 10 will have to be a "customer purchase" because they voided the OEM license by downgrading with a Open License, and moving to 32bit, correct? I just want to be specific in my answer to them as I am sure they will get a second opinion. I think they are of the opinion the license should be free to go back to Windows 10.
Thanks for your help.
