    My wife is a student & we purchased the Ultimate Steal Office 2007 suite last
    year. The PC it is on is becoming unstable & I bought a new PC & networked
    them. I need to get Office onto the new PC (have the disc) but I am unsure
    re: whether I can do so without a licensing issue...

    She has all her coursework & docs on the Vista machine in .docx format, & we
    cannot afford to risk losing them, or losing new files if MS determines my
    new install is not authentic on the Win7 machine.

    1st PC is running Vista, new one is Win7.

    How should I proceed?

    Without worrying about licensing issues, please try to install it using
    your disks and if you have any problems, come back here with any error
    messages you get on the screen. We shall worry about licensing issues
    when the software is up and running properly.

    You can download Office compatibility kit from Microsoft Website for
    free. Again worry about this when that time comes!

    Good investment. Congratulation.

    Read the EULA, Word, Office Button, Word Options, Resources, About, View the
    Microsoft Software License Terms. That will tell you how many installations
    you can concurrently have. You should be able to determine from
    "INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS" whether MS will activate Office on the new
    machine.

    If the Vista machine is becoming unstable (What Vista machine isn't?) then
    make a backup of all the .docx files and any other files you care about.
    You could burn them to a CD, for example. The rule is, that if you "cannot
    afford to risk losing them", then you should already have multiple copies.
