I've had Office 2007 for at least 2 years now. I got 3 installs with it. One of my computers has died and I want to install it on a new computer.

If I recall this is allowed by Microsoft but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it? Please Help!

Hi NoPlanB.

I take it you must be using the "Home and Student" version?
It is the only version of office 07 that allows that many installs and 3 is the legal limit.
You can install and use it a 4th time (as it has no way of knowing that) and use it up to 50 times before you are nagged for activation and it goes into reduced functionality mode. If afterwards you are denied another license key via the activation wizard (wizard dies) you can bring the wizard back to life by deleting the opa12.dat file, described in this article, or contact MS by phone. Below is a link to all ms products and license terms
