When buying a version of the box and getting everything you need to install the product, do not forget that the purchase of software - is the purchase of a license, ie certain (limited) rights to use a particular product. For boxed versions, these rights are governed by the terms of the End User License Agreement.
The license agreement with the end user is often distributed electronically and is displayed when the product is first launched. The agreement specifies important aspects of use, such as the number of installations under one license, the ability to transfer the product to another PC, the need for activation and technical support from Microsoft, and lists the necessary components to verify the legality of the software. Downgrade is not available for box licenses, except for some development tools and servers.
