  • Hello IamJoanneMarie,

    All of the usage rights and restrictions for Office 2007 Military Appreciation Edition are covered in the product's Software Licensing Terms (SLTs).

    If your friend has at least one installation of Office 2007 MAE installed, on that computer, he can view he license terms by starting Word, then click on Office Button>Word Options>Resources>About, and in the About dialog box, click on the link to view the Software Licensing Terms.

    It is my personal reading of the SLTs that, generally speaking, use of the MAE product is allowed if the person's military status (active/reserve/dependent/retiree, etc.) is permitted the use of the Post/Base Exchange facilities.  If your friend separated from the military with a status that allows him to continue to use the Post/Base Exchange, then he would continue to qualify to use the MAE product.

    If you install and run Belarc Advisor, it will tell you your current Product Key for Office and Windows (among many other thing!)
