Yes,  before you do it go to your online account page and dectivate the license.   That way it wont think you are downloading a second one once you install in Windows 7.

By the way, your profile talks about expertise in Total Protection Service, that is a corporate product, not to be confused with McAfee Total Protection, the consumer product.

Go to your account page here and click in the Subscription link once you are signed in and it should show up there.  If it doesn't don't worry, you can always phone Customer Service afterwards and they will sort out any problems for you, it's a toll-free call.
