Windows 7: Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate license


17 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC
 
 
Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate license

I recently bought Office 2007 Ultimate and would like to have it on my laptop and desktop. I know MS doesn't like this for the OS itself, but Office shouldn't be a problem, right? I use my desktop for documents at home but sometimes I use my laptop when I'm away and it would be inconvenient if I have to buy another license just to install the program on it legitimately. And if that isn't an option, if I decided to do it anyway, would MS send death ninjas to my door step?

I don't think they would send ninjas. But watch for lawyers.....

I believe the license on Office is two computers.....?
You would need to read the EULA.

Office is typically licensed for two machines -- one "home" and one "portable".

See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/he...340811033.aspx "Read the Microsoft Software License Terms". Section 2 "Installation and Use Rights" tells you how many computers (and what types of computers) you can install your copy of Office on. Generally speaking, an OEM (preinstalled) copy of Office 2007 Standard is licensed for installation only on the computer that the software came with, and a retail-box copy of Office 2007 Standard is licensed for installation on one desktop and one laptop (or pc) owned by the same person.

Different but related question. My HD is about to kick the bucket. I have all my license keys saved to a printed text file. I plan to replace my hard drive but no longer have my Office Ultimate (among others) CD/DVDs to reinstall. Where can I get the Office Ultimate software? Again, I have my legal Key and just need the software. Can anyone help?

Looks like a thread highjack, but...

How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and product upgrades, and replace product manuals

Unfortunately, this is only for the USA & Canada. Haven't located a similar link for Germany. (Which versions do you want, anyway? English or German?)

Good luck.

I'm looking for US English version of Office 2007 Ultimate. As I said, I have it currently installed and working but my HD is on it's last leg and I just need the software to re-install using my current Key. Short of ordering a replacement disk from Microsoft, does anyone know where I can download the SW?

Sorry there is no legal download and any other method is illegal and against forum rules.
