office 2007 home & student on my laptop

    Hello:
    I purchased office home & student from a big box office store in janurary of
    2009 for my desktop. I'm buying a laptop for my fiance for her first year of
    grad school, and I'd like to know if I can install the same copy onto her
    computer that i used on my laptop. All of the answers i find (including a
    link to the (eula* sp?) agreement were pretty vague, but I'd rather not try
    without a confirmed answer.

    The cost of the program makes a difference in the quality of laptop I will
    be buying, so It would be outstanding to find confirmation of this issue
    asap.

    Thanks for your time and all of your help,
    Mike

    As long as she is in the same location, then you should be OK.

    Check the EULA on your own copy to see if there's more detailed info specific
    to H&S Edition. All I've been able to find so far refers to installing on up
    to three devices in one household.

    I suppose that suggests that if you and your fiance live together, you're ok.
    Otherwise, not.

    We live in the same home, but she does travel, she's a biologist, and works
    on the road a lot, as well as at school. Does that count as "in the same
    location?"

    Yes. It's the "same home" bit that's relevant...

    The license states it is for non-commercial work only. IOW: Not for business
    use.

    Yes you can as long as you still have the product key code that came
    with the software when you purchased it.
