If you are looking to cut costs, and only purchase one license of Quickbooks Point of Sale, you will only be able to have the POS open on one machine at a time. This works fine if you have a single register and a back office, where the back office need only run the software at the beginning or end of day. If, however, the back office and a single register need to run POS simultaneously two licenses will have to be purchased.
Another issue is that if you have installed Windows XP without the .cab files you might have trouble getting the installation to work.
