Windows 7: Office 2003 on two computers

Office 2003 on two computers

I use Microsoft Office 2003 and I like it. It is on my desktop and I got a new laptop today. Is Office 2003 old enough it would be safe to install it on the new laptop while it's on the desktop?

Office 03 is compatible with win7, but it may depend on which version of Office you have.

Some license say you can have two installs, others only one, but that may be an international restriction. You would have to get an EULAanalyzer to help you figure that out.

Go ahead and try it. Let us know how you make out.

Actually, as long as you aren't using the two installations simultaneously, you're good to go.

As long as the installation is for for the exclusive use of the primary machine user, Office can be installed on one primary machine and one portable machine. You would be within the EULA should that be your desire.
