Installing VB Express 2005 Ed. on ghosted computers - registry question

P: 1
I am going to install visual basic express on our school computers.
Can you tell me if the same registration key can be used for all users?
If they roam to another pc would they have to register again?

Image is ghosted and sysprepped. Users have own roaming profile, and re-directed "my documents".
Or should I use one fixed/redirected profile?

yes, but you for legality every instance of the express editions should be registered but registration is not required.. but an anoying baloon tip would popup randomly if not.. it just says that it would be better if the product is registered..

but if you clone an image... you just need to regsiter the installation on the master image..and you dont have to re-register it after doing so.. i tried it my self.. and it works all fine..

Excellent piece of information, hope this gets through to you...

Alos, please be advised, not all Microsoft products are valid through ghost server copies. You may want to keep your legal copy of the product, just in case you need to re-install separately on local machines.
