Office XP Professional Installation/Activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have replaced Office XP Professional on my PC with Office 2003 Professional.  Office XP Professional was removed with the installation of Office 2003 Professional.  I have successfully activated Office 2003 Professional.


    I still have the CD for Office XP Professional.  Would I be able to install and activate Office XP Professional on my wife's PC using this CD?

  • If you upgraded to Office 2003 Professional from Office XP Professional using an upgrade version of Office 2003 Professional, then you cannot use your Office XP license to install Office XP on a different computer.  The Office XP license formed the basis for allowing you to upgrade using an upgrade Office 2003 license.


    If you upgraded using a "full version" Office 2003 license, then you can use your Office XP license on a different computer.
