  • Hello aalexandrovich,

    It all depends upon whether the license for the installed Office 2007 is a retail or OEM license.]

    If OEM, the license is only valid on computer onto which it was first installed--it is not permitted to be moved to any other computer.

    If full retail, you are permitted to install Office on your laptop and your desktop at the same time, so no need to remove it from one to install on the other.

    To find out what kind of license you have, follow these instructions:
