      Sky Go & Installing new OS.

      I have registered Sky Go on my laptop but need to upgrade the OS from Windows 7 Home Premium to Ultimate.

      Is it still possible to do this without re-registering Sky Go? Is there anything (like a cookie) I can copy to take over to the new OS?

      Regards.

      Worse case scenario, you would need to delete the registered Laptop and re-register your Laptop.

      There is a setting within Silverlight that is used to record whether a particular Laptop has been registered. It is likely that the upgrade will reset this, but you shouldn't lose anything which you have already downloaded.
