I bought windows 8 upgrade from microsoft, and i found on this page that:

  • Offer valid from October 26, 2012 until January 31, 2013 and is for individuals and small businesses needing to upgrade up to five devices. If you are a business customer looking to upgrade more than five devices to Windows 8 Pro, contact your Microsoft partner for more information

Is that means that i Can upgrade up to five PCs using the same downloaded windows? or means that I can buy max 5 licences?

No, it means that if you have more than 5 devices, rather than paying for five retail upgrades you'll get better pricing by opening a volume licensing account.

so this means that the version i just got is just for one device upgrade and can't use it for any other device in the same time, correct? – Amr Elgarhy Jan 29 '13 at 15:54
That is correct. – Joel Coehoorn Jan 29 '13 at 16:51
