Microsoft Office Questions and Answers - Installing Office On More Than One Computer

Arleta writes in with an Office question

Question:
I want to install Microsoft Office 2003 so I can do my work at home as well as in the office, but how do I install it at home? My son bought me a new computer for home to help me keep up with the UAW work that I have to do. Microsoft 2003 was already installed in the computer at the UAW hall when we bought it and they gave us the book and 2 disks when we picked up the computer. The job I have is an elected job and I didn't have a lot of computer skills when I took over the financial secretary treasurer job at UAW. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Arleta

Answer: When you buy most software it is usually only licensed for 1 computer unless you buy multiple licenses. So if you installed it on another computer already or if it came on that computer already installed then you may be looking at buying another copy for your home computer. You can try to install it at home using the CD and installation key and see what happens when you try to activate it online. You may get lucky and have it go through the activation process. Some Microsoft software will allow you to install one copy on 2 computers assuming they are both your computers.
