    Does that mean if I have stupid Vista I won’t be able to download the Intel AppUp cllient? What does it mean that Vista isn’t officially supported?

    • It just means that the Intel AppUp client may work with Vista, but it is not
      Guaranteed, not really Microsoft’s fault…it’s really Intel who made that
      decision. If you plan on trying it out though, make sure to back up your
      computer before installing the client.

    Nice guide. Once you get it (or any app from Intel AppUp) do you get to run/install on other PC’s or is it just one install per purchase?

    • I believe you have to install for each, but I’m not sure I only have one to test right now.
