    Hi, I just bought a new laptop to replace my old one since it had some
    faluts. For this reason I would like to install office 2007. I know that you
    can install ms office in 3 pcs, which I already have, my question is:
    If I uninstal office from my old PC, can i install ut in my new PC or should
    I buy office again.
    I dont want that my licence is catalogued as pirate.

    The answer depends on which edition of Office 2007 you have now. If you
    have Home and Student, you can install it on three computers. If you have
    Professional, I believe it is one desktop and one laptop. If it is Basic or
    an OEM version that came on your laptop when you bought it, you may not be
    able to do what you want.

    If it is a retail perpetual license product, you can indeed uninstall it
    from the old laptop and install it on the new one. Do you have the DVD to
    install it and what does it say on the DVD or packaging?
