    Hi,

     

    Do you have a retail Windows Vista Home Premium key? If so, it can be used on Windows Vista Home Premium in all languages. That is to say, you can use your original key used on a German system to install on an English Windows Vista Home Premium system.

  • An English version of Windows Vista will not accept a product key meant for a German version of Windows Vista.
