Questions on licensing and on installing for Win8.1

Hi, I have purchased a 5 pack license of StartIsBack (thank god this exists!) to which I've used 2 licenses, one for my wife, one for my son (I'm still on Win7 Pro). My wife's Win8 PC is dying, so I'm planning to set her up on a new PC and install Win8.1. A couple of questions: 1. How can I recover the license from the dying PC, so I can re-use it on the new one? 2. What's the best way to install StartIsBack for 8.1? I will be installing Win8 first, then upgrading to Win8.1. Should I wait until the OS is upgraded to 8.1 and only then install StartIsBack+ (the one for 8.1)? Thanks for a program that stops us from pulling our hair out! Very useful.... Paul

By the way, I'm doing a clean install of Win8 -> Win8.1

1. You don't need to recover a license. You can use license on a new PC after 30 days since activating it on old one. 2. If you're not gonna use StartIsBack on Windows 8, then don't install it before upgrading to Windows 8.1.
