I have a copy of MS Office 2007. I have it all up and running on my laptop but I am wondering if the code still has any use or if I can throw the box/container out. It's a 3 use code, not sure if I have used it up or not.
This sounds like FPP (retail) product. Keep it for installing on a future computer as with this product you are allowed to uninstall it from one computer and install it on another.
And if online activation fails just use the phone option.
edit: which is automated, no people involved.
It's a 3 use code...
Are you sure ?
MS made all that as clear as mud . Ive a customer thats insists she has a 3 license version of Office Retail, when in fact its a single Lic (the **** at the retail shop
didnt have a clue & told her some BS when she bought it)
The home & student may be 3 lic, but that doesnt have outlook. The versions with Outlook probably wont be 3lic
In any case, if you just re-use it , it usually will activate . Sometimes as above, you just need to do a ph activation & will need to speed to them, automated ph activation
usually wont go through when theres a activation/lic issue to sort out
Usually if a reasonable length of time has elapsed, the online activation works fine (I have done it after about 9 months, no problems).
