Hi :)

Just a quick question regarding Microsoft office license installs.

I have just been working on an unbootable computer. Prior to this I asked the user what she would like me to back up regarding docs, music etc etc.
In conversation she told me that she had Office 2003 on the system, her software allowed her three licences to install on three different systems which she had done. I managed to fix the computer without loosing anything in the end.

My question is, would I have been able to reinstall Office and activate it just by reinstalling and supplying the VLK if I had reformatted and reinstalled the Operating System.

Thanks in advance of any replies.

You should be able to do so with no problem. If you do, however, have an issue you can simply call MS and they'll take care of it on the phone.

Example: I have the upgrade version of Win 7, which allows me 3 installs on separate machines.

I have done multiple clean installs on both my systems...which used up two of my allowed installs. Installing multiple times on the same system as recognized via PA...has in no way affected my ability to do a third install on a different system.

The type of license...really has nothing to do with validation via PA...as long as the system data checks out.
