Upgrade Your Computer Software With a Windows 7 Professional Key

If you have a new computer or just want to switch to a different version of Microsoft Windows, then a Windows 7 Professional key is an essential part of the process. Buying a product key available on eBay lets you actually activate and use the Windows 7 operating system on your device.

How is Windows 7 Professional different from other editions?

Microsoft created several different versions of Windows 7, and each one has its own unique benefits. The Windows 7 Pro key contains access to a Windows 7 edition for small business users, schools, and Windows enthusiasts. It has the ability to support 192GB of RAM, backup to a network location, operate as a remote desktop server, encrypt files, and participate in a Windows server domain. Windows 7 Professional keys also give you access to the features of these Windows versions:

  • Windows 7 Starter
  • Windows 7 Home Basic
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
Can you use the product key on multiple computers?

Once you get a new Windows 7 Professional key from eBay, you can technically install Windows on multiple computers from the disc that contains the upgrade information. However, this will not let you put a functional version of Windows on more than one device. You can only activate the software from the Windows 7 Pro product key on a single computer at a time. If you do not activate Windows 7 with the key, you cannot continue to use the operating system on your computer.

What is the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit keys?

When purchasing a Windows 7 Pro key on eBay, you may need to get the one that matches your computer's bit designation. Windows 7 product keys come in both a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. Those with a 64-bit product key and computer are able to use more RAM and memory per process. The 32-bit versions of the key will run fine on a 64-bit computer, but 64-bit versions cannot run on a 32-bit computer. If you do decide to use the 32-bit version of Windows 7 Pro on your 64-bit hardware, keep in mind that the computer will essentially run like it is just a 32-bit device.

What happens if you buy a preowned Windows 7 key?

You may occasionally find previously used product key discs on eBay. These products tend to be very affordable, and they do let you put Windows 7 on your computer. However, you cannot activate Windows 7 with a previously used key unless the installation on another computer has been deleted.
