  • Hi HamiltonW,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    If the user of the Visual C++ 2010 Express on each computer is the same person, you can use one registration key to activate all the computers.

     

    If Visual C++ 2010 Express are used by different users, each of them should get a key.

     

    Since one key one person, you should ensure each user have his own key.

     

    If you have any other concerns, please feel free to let me know.

  • Hello.

    I cant' find a registration key. I have downloaded C++Express and installed it. While runing it show me a window where is a cell to input a registration key and a button above "Obtain a registration key online". I click that button and go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/hh388567.aspx 

    But where is that key??? I see lots of information that I didn't ask but don't see that I really need - a key (or link to it). And what I should do???
