Specs: Windows 7
While running Window 7, I would like to connect two separate monitors displaying two separate Windows from two separate programs. Do I need two cpus and OS licenses?

You will need a video card that has 2 outputs on it. You can use vga and dvi outputs together. You don't need a license or a dual core cpu.

The number of CPU's and the number of monitors you can use is totally unrelated. Neither require multiple OS licenses. Some editions of Windows 7 limit you to a single physical CPU. The number of cores per CPU is limited only by hardware.

Grasshopper, Thank you for your reply. I will have the hardware but I have yet to determine how I can direct one program to monitor #1 and a second program to monitor #2. Can you help me here? ArtCamp

Art, launch the program then click on the center button of the three located in the upper right hand corner so it shrinks the window. Put your cursor on the bar along the top of the window and hold down the left mouse button. Drag the window over to the other monitor then click on the center button again to maximize the window. It will now open up in the other monitor from now on.
