How do i check how many copies of my office is activated? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a office home and student 2007 with 3 home PC licenses. But its been a long time since i installed them on my family pcs so i had forgotten how many licenses i had activated. Is there a way to know how many licenses i had activated? Or will i be able to transfer my license from my old pc (which is going to be given away) to my new laptop?

  • Hello tofubean,

    There is nothing available to the general public that allows checking on how many activations have been done on your Office H&S 2007.

    Best thing to do would be to ensure that you have uninstalled Office H&S 2007 from the computer before you give it away.  Here's a MS FixIt utility that does a better job than the normal uninstaller:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971179/

    Then just go ahead and install Office H&S 2007 on the new laptop and acivate normally.

    In addition to Dan's reply,  I am assuming you are worried about installing more than three times.  It is three concurrent (at the same time) computers not three installs totally.  If you don't have it installed on more than the three computers at any one time you will be "legal."
