I'm wanting to purchase Office 2007 Ultimate for $80 (for students, see http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-nz/default.aspx )


But i'd like to know if i can install the software on both my desktop and my laptop? I've tried calling Microsoft activation phone support but there is no way to get through to a human unless i type in an activation code.


Any feedback would be great.


Thanks :)

Yes - I can't find the details on the website (it's definitely there somewhere, just can't find it right now) but copied from my installation (also from the Ultimate Steal deal):

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.

Sounds good; i didn't really want to buy two copies... i would have just gone with Open Office if that was the case.


EDIT: THANK YOU very much :)

I was previously advised by an operator that you can install it on to 3 different computers, have to be personal computers when you advise the operator..

I have used this twice in my time of using office.

Otherwise install it on one, wait a few days, install on the second computer, when you call them, explain that your computer was stolen and you have to do it on a new computer.

Hope the first comment helps

It is able to be installed on three pc's supposed to be all your own though (well within your own home). Otherwise as he said above there are other options.

Three PC limit is for Home and Student only. Not applicable to retail SKUs other than that one.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.
