    Windows 7 Student Offer

    How many times can you install it?

    Once? Three times? or as many as you want?

    Also would the CD key from the 32bit download work on the 64bit download?

    You can transfer the license to another computer, but you can only have once instance of the license installed at a time!

    From windows 7 EULA ...
    Code:
    17. TRANSFER TO ANOTHER COMPUTER.
    a. Software Other than Windows Anytime Upgrade. You may transfer the software and install it on another computer for your use. That computer becomes the licensed computer. You may not do so to share this license between computers.
    b. Windows Anytime Upgrade Software. You may transfer the software and install it on another computer, but only if the license terms of the software you upgraded from allows you to do so. That computer becomes the licensed computer. You may not do so to share this license between computers.
    18. TRANSFER TO A THIRD PARTY.
    a. Software Other Than Windows Anytime Upgrade. The first user of the software may make a one time transfer of the software and this agreement, by transferring the original media, the certificate of authenticity, the product key and the proof of purchase directly to a third party. The first user must remove the software before transferring it separately from the computer. The first user may not retain any copies of the software.
    b. Windows Anytime Upgrade Software. You may transfer the software directly to a third party only with the licensed computer. You may not keep any copies of the software or any earlier edition.
    c. Other Requirements. Before any permitted transfer, the other party must agree that this agreement applies to the transfer and use of the software.
    Implies to me that you can install the software more than once!

  6. Thanks to ind1ekid from:

    That only applies to OEM licenses, where u cant transfer the license to a different computer
    The retail licenses are transferable!
