Windows 7: Using Office 2013 with multiple domain user accounts

Using Office 2013 with multiple domain user accounts

Has anyone had any experience using Office 2013 in a corporate environment, with domain user accounts that log onto workstations?

Recently my small office acquired another workstation running Windows 7 Home Premium, and it did not have any Office version installed on it. Using Anytime Upgrade I upgraded the machine to Win7 Pro for use in the office so that it can connect to our domain server using Active Directory, and domain users can log in. Typically when I set up a machine, I connect it to the domain, then add the machine's primary domain user as a user account.

Last week we had a new hire come in who now needs to use this machine. I set up his domain user on our server, and then added that domain user as a user account on the machine. Now he logs into that machine using his own domain name and password.

The problem now is that when he tried to use any Office 2013 program, mainly Outlook, it keeps saying the software needs to be registered. I tried entering the product key again, which then took me to another screen asking for credentials. I entered the credentials of the first (previous) user, then later signed out of Currently Outlook 2013 seems to be working, showing the new user's local account, but he says it has intermittently gone back to what seems to be an "unregistered" state.

I do not want every employee in this office to be required to have a account just to use a software we have paid for. That is asinine. What can I do?

*note* this is not Office 365, this is the full retail version of Office 2013 Home & Business.

As far as I know Office 2013 Home & Business is licensed to be used on only one computer.
