My son uses Microsoft Office 2007 on his Vista laptop computer 

I bought him a Win7 laptop computer and he would like to use his Microsoft Office 2007 on this computer

If we uninstall it from the Vista computer and can we legally install it onto the Win7 laptop?

I'll be at his house this weekend to do that for him but I've never good luck interpreting the information in a EULA

I believe you can; you are only installing and using on one computer at a time.  Now, if this is OEM software, I don't know if you can.

That's right Roland. If it is a purchased as a separate product it can be installed and activated on any single machine at one one. OEM licenses are tied to a particular machine, just like other MS products.

 

With the 2013 version MS tried to tie the product to one machine for life but there was massive backlash, so they quit that douchebaggery.

That's good news, thanks. It's Microsoft Office Standard 2007 and it was purchased seperately
