Installing on a new machine while still on old machine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently got a new computer.  When I put Office Standard 2007 on the new machine it wouldn't valadate.  I assume this is because I still have it installed on the onld machine.  Will this be resolved when I remove it from the old machine?

  • Hello pkeene,


    If you have an OEM copy of Office then that copy may only be installed on one machined and can not be moved to another, however if you have a Retail copy then you may move it to another machine once it has been removed from the previous computer.  Please reference this post on running the MGA diagnostics and post your results here and we can determine why this copy of Office is failing validation: http://forums.microsoft.com/Genuine/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2170295&SiteID=25.
