Reinstall trial version after reinstallation of Windows?

After I reinstall Windows, will it be possible to install a second trial version of Norton Security Premium?

Re: Reinstall trial version after reinstallation of Windows?

Let me ask this a different way. I am a software tester, I often install trial or beta software in a virtual machine for testing purposes. I want to know if I install Norton Premium trial version in a virtual machine, and then I revert to an earlier snapshot, will I be able to test Norton again? Or will it detect the ID of the virtual machine, and refuse to activate another trial version?

All you can do is test. Norton has processes to avoid this kind of abuse of a trial version. Not sure how it works with VMs.

If you have a paid version with seats left, you can use one activation when you set up the VM. If you have to start again, you can remove that activation from your Norton Account so it will be available for your next VM.
