Office Home & Student 2007 Activation Question

Discussion in 'Microsoft Office' started by David Dyke, Apr 27, 2010.

    Please help with information.

    I have Office Home & Student 2007. I know I can activate it on 3 machines.
    But...

    On MY computer, I am currently using it.

    On my Laptop I have installed it.

    I have installed it on my wife's Desktop computer.

    That is 3, right? But... I need to install (only temporarily) on a NEW
    computer for me. That would make 4 installations and Microsoft won't allow
    that.

    Can someone supply with a phone number that I can appeal & explain a temp
    situation to MS? Or what does anyone suggest I do?

    I just want to remove & replace some files on my old computer to the new
    one, and they would both have to be hooked up. Must I delete, or uninstall
    the Office Home & Student 2007 on my old machine first? And then can I
    install it on my new machine?

    I see problems, but I do not know what to do! Help.

    You can install it on your 4th machine temporarily and you can use it
    without activation for 30 days or 25 times which ever is shorter. After
    that you can try to activate it and the chances are it will activate
    without problems. If it fails, you will be given a toll-free number on
    the screen to contact Micros-S*hit and explain the situation.

    Micro-S*hit has a policy to wipe its databases every 120 days so if you
    play your cards right, you can get multiple installations of the same
    product for free.

    Do it but don't activate. As long as you don't need to use it more than 25
    times...
    May I ask WHY you need to install it TEMPORARILY?

    Sure. I had installed it on my earlier Laptop and also on my (now) older
    Desktop that I use everyday.

    I bought a new Laptop and used the 3rd install on it and comletely deleted
    everything on my old Laptop.

    Then I had a new Desktop built for my wife. (That never had Office installed
    on it.) I installed Office Home & Student 2007 on it.

    The reason for install problems: I am now having a new: Desktop PC built for
    me. I want to have transferred only my Favorites, Address Book , and Mail &
    Newsgroup account settings transferred. (I'm afraid to do it, although I'm
    sure it's a simple process. THEN I'll set them both up (the computers,
    side-by-side) and using a 'thumbdrive' transer all the folders (files) I
    want from my old computer to my new compluter. At the same time, I may need
    to use Office. I found that I could no longer install that program. (Just
    looking ahead.) That is the reason for my question.

    A fellow contributer to the Newsgroup. Peter, says that a MS phone number
    will pop-up when I try to install it on my new computer and that is fine.
    I'll call and explain to MS If I have to. I can (with some difficulty,
    personal reasons) use my Laptop and/or my wifes computer if I have to delete
    this program from my 'old' computer to satisfy MS. That is why I want to use
    (if I have to) the older program installation for a few days.

    That is a long-winded explanation. Sorry 'bout that. Does anyone have any
    other ideas for me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Eh? Never seen that before. The DVD doesn't know how many computers it's
    been installed on. Sorry, AFAIK that's rubbish.
    It's when you try to ACTIVATE it the problem will arise so don't activate!

    Now I'm really confused! I eventually will want to activate it (use it) on
    my new, that will be, my 3 rd machine. Now, I won't be able to. Am I right?
    What do you think I should do?

    As long as it's only installed on THREE machines at any one time then you
    will be able to activate. The worst scenario is that you might have to use
    Telephone activation.
