Office 2007 Suite

    I purchased Office 2007 suite through my compnay home use program. I
    purchased a download and a disk to be sent to my home. All this, of course,
    is for my home use. I have two desk tops and one lap top at home. Out of
    the two things I purchased I received one key number. Can I load what I
    purchased on all three machines and be able to have them activated?

    Thanks.

    Nope, ONE machine is all the Home Use program provides for.

    No. Home use license for Office Enterprise edition is generally for 1
    device and then one portable device for the exclusive use of the primary
    user of the first device just like a retail version. I can be almost 100
    percent sure that you can not install it onto 3 devices. The only way to be
    sure what the EULA says is to either read the documentation that came with
    your home use product or to install it onto whatever will be your primary
    device and then start Word, click the Office Orb, Options then go to the
    about and read the license agreement.

    One other thing about home use licensing is that it normally expires upon
    leaving the employ of the company thorough which you purchased the product.

    I stand corrected on the one PC, I see that they use the standard retail
    EULA. The other thing that invalidates the Home Use Program is the
    company not maintaining their Software Assurance licensing.

    So when I purchase a down load and then purchase the disks (two seperate
    fees) then that doesn't give me a license for each?

    If the discs are purchased as a backup for the download, no, there isn't
    another license. If you are purchasing a download version, and pay full
    price for it, and purchase a disc version and pay full price for it, that's
    another story.

    nope
    (the download & disk are the same, the latter is your hard copy cd)
