    do have two laptops. Can I install it on the laptops without breaking yhe

    You can install ONE instance of the program on ONE computer.
    So yes, you can install it on ONE of the laptops. Read the
    EULA for precise details.

    The License says "One PRIMARY device and one portable for the sole use of
    the user of the primary device".
    You need to think whether that agrees with your situation...

    No.

    Not in my experience: "One PRIMARY device and one portable
    ...." does not appear anywhere in the EULA. So I must ask,
    which version of office are you referring to?

    No where does anything for MS Office indicate what was given
    in the previous response on my two machines; they both have
    the same EULA working for OEM 2k2 and Retail 2003. Perhaps
    win98 and/or Vista etc. are different; I've never looked.

    So in the end, I'd suggest that you read your own EULA to see
    what it says as opposed to taking anyone's word here. Things
    change, but I don't think that changed. The individual
    component EULA's BTW are identical to the one for Office
    itself. AFAIK, it is one install instance on one machine/cpu
    motherboard, etc. The EULAs are pretty clear on that.
    Being able to also install on a laptop IIRC comes from the
    win95/98 days.


    My Microsoft Office Pro EULA says, from
    (Path: C:/Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\oemEULA.txt)
    is below. There ARE provisions for a backup copy, but this
    thread concerns installations, not backups.

    "
    · General License Grant to Install and Use. Except as
    otherwise expressly provided in this EULA, You may only
    install and use one copy of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT on the
    COMPUTER. The SOFTWARE PRODUCT may not be installed,
    accessed, displayed, run, shared or used concurrently on or
    from different computers, including a workstation, terminal or
    other digital or analog electronic device ("Device"), except
    as set forth below for Sharepoint Team Services.
    "
    Also:
    "
    · Additional License Grant for Sharepoint Team Services. The
    Software Product may contain a copy of the Sharepoint Team
    Services. If so, You may install one copy of such software on
    one Device and allow an unlimited number of individuals within
    Your business or enterprise to access and use the Sharepoint
    Team Services from other Devices provided that You acquire and
    dedicate a license to the software product for the Device upon
    which the Sharepoint Team Services are installed.
    "
    But that's not the case here.

    And further:
    "· Multiple Processor Version Selection. The CD or
    diskette(s) on which the SOFTWARE PRODUCT resides may contain
    several copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, each of which is
    compatible with a different microprocessor architecture, such
    as the x86 architecture or various RISC architectures
    ("Processor Version(s)"). You may install and use only one
    copy of one Processor Version of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT on the
    COMPUTER.
    "
    and
    "
    5. DUAL-MEDIA SOFTWARE PRODUCT. You may receive the SOFTWARE
    PRODUCT in more than one medium. Regardless of the type or
    size of medium You receive, You may use only one medium that
    is appropriate for the COMPUTER. You may not install or use
    the other medium on another computer.

    You said Office 2K2 and also OEM. OEM licenses are specific to one device
    or computer depending on the year of the product. The OP asked about 2007
    not 2K2 or 2003.
    While you would be correct if the OP did purchase an OEM version of Office
    Pro this is not stated. This is the Official MS EULA for Office Pro RETAIL
    from MY RETAIL copy of Office Pro:

    1. RETAIL LICENSE TERMS These license terms are an agreement between
    Microsoft Corporation (or based on where you live, one of its affiliates)
    and you. Please read them. They apply to the software that accompanies these
    license terms, which includes the media on which you received it, if any.
    The terms also apply to any Microsoft ·updates, ·supplements,
    ·Internet-based services, and ·support services for this software, unless
    other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply. BY USING THE
    SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THEM, DO NOT USE THE
    SOFTWARE. INSTEAD, RETURN IT TO THE RETAILER FOR A REFUND OR CREDIT. If you
    cannot obtain a refund there, contact Microsoft or the Microsoft affiliate
    serving your country for information about Microsoft's refund policies. See
    www.microsoft.com/worldwide. In the United States and Canada, call (800)
    MICROSOFT or see www.microsoft.com/info/nareturns.htm. AS DESCRIBED BELOW,
    USING THE SOFTWARE ALSO OPERATES AS YOUR CONSENT TO THE TRANSMISSION OF
    CERTAIN COMPUTER INFORMATION DURING ACTIVATION, VALIDATION AND FOR
    INTERNET-BASED SERVICES. IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE
    THE RIGHTS BELOW FOR EACH LICENSE YOU ACQUIRE.

    1.OVERVIEW. These license terms permit installation and use of one copy of
    the software on one device, along with other rights, all as described below.

    2.INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. Before you use the software under a license,
    you must assign that license to one device. That device is the "licensed
    device." A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate
    device.

    a.Licensed Device. You may install and use one copy of the software on the
    licensed device.

    b.Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device for use
    by the single primary user of the licensed device.

    c.Separation of Components. The components of the software are licensed as a
    single unit. You may not separate the components and install them on
    different devices.

    My comments continue: Note 2a and 2b above concerning what the software can
    be installed onto. And to quote someone who recently posted "Please, get
    your facts right before posting things such as
    this. You may have meant well, but there were a lot of misleading things in
    your post."

    My Eula says: install on i primary device and i portable device. No where in
    the Eula does it define 1 primary device as a desktop device. I my case my
    primary device is a laptop, and my travel PC is a laptop.

    In that case you can install on any two systems you like. After
    120 days (on 121st day) you can install on two other machines
    because by that time Microsoft would have zapped its records
    created in the last 120 days. You have to understand that keeping
    track of millions of records is time consuming and expensive and
    so Microsoft has decided to trust its customers.

    In Windows 7 and Office 2010 the activation program version 2
    works quite differently and so crackers are having a tough time
    dealing with it. However, there is always a way so watch the
    space!
