Question about installing Office Ultimate on my laptop... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    First, I hope this is the right section of the forum to post this question in...

    Back in spring of 2008, I purchased MS Office Ultimate 2007 from www.theultimatesteal.com and downloaded it onto my desktop from the website... I also had the backup disked mailed to me... Well, now I am going to be getting a laptop for college... I have read elsewhere online that with all MS Office products, the owner can download the program on their desktop along with their portable laptop... I would just like to confirm that this is perfectly legal, and that I will be able to use the disks to install MS Office Ultimate 2007 on my laptop...

  • Hello TheBMRR,

    The Software Licensing Terms that govern your exact installation of Office can be viewed as follows:

    1.  Open an Office program, Word for example.
    2.  Click the Office button at the upper left.
    3.  Click the Word Options button at the lower right.
    4.  Click the "Resources" link on the lower left.
    5.  Click the "About" button.
    6.  Click the blue "View the Microsoft Software License Terms" (SLT) link.
    7.  You should fall into the "Retail" license category.
    8.  Check Paragraph 2 of the Retail Microsoft Office SLT.  You can install and activate on your desktop and your laptop at the same time.
