Removing Office 2003 from a desktop and reinstalling it on a laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a genuine copy of Office Pro 2003 on my desktop PC and due to it being old and slow, have bought a new laptop with Windows 7 preinstalled but not office. I want to remove my office 2003 from my desktop and reinstall it on my laptop. When I did this and tried to validate it, I got an error message saying I couldn't. Attached is the diag file from my desktop PC - how can I validate office 2003 on my laptop - I need Outlook as the email program in Windows 7 can't recognize all my old outlook .ost and .pst files.

  • Hello Roscoe1,

    The mgadiag report shows that your old computer has a genuine retail licensed installation of Office Professional 2003.  (Not sure if it is ful retail or upgrade retail--it would be on the installation discs and the Certificate of Authenticity on the package).

    Generally speaking, a full retail license for Office Professional 2003 is permitted to be installed and activated on both the license holder's main computer and the license holder's portable computer at the same time.  Thus there would be no pressing reason to uninstall it from your desktop so you can install it on your laptop.  If you have an upgrade retail license, you would have to remove it from the desktop in order to install it on the laptop.

    The above info applies to the USA.  Your report says you are in Australia, so you should check your End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for Office to see if you are permitted to do the same thing.

    If you had trouble activating Office 2003 on the new laptop, you may have to do a Telephonic activation.

    If it activated OK but you had trouble validating Office 2003, please run the mgadiag utility on the Win7 laptop and post the report.
