Transferring Office 2007 License (retail)

Hey guys: - it's me macca, from vista forums, finally converted to Windows 7

I have a box that I bought with Office Home and Student 2007 on it (3-user license.) The licenses are used my 2 vista machines and one Win7 machine in my house. I want to know how I can disable the one on one of the vista machines and make it work on my new OS instead

thanks

Hi Maccaquacker, nice to meet you!

Just uninstall Office on one of the Vista machines then install on the Win7.

Just install it and use the key. As long as you do not use more than 3 simultaneously, you'll be OK.
