Transfer Home Use Program License to new computer RRS feed

  • General discussion


    I appologize in advance if this has already been answered but, if it was, I could not find it after an hour of searching various forums.




    I purchased a desktop a few years back with an OEM licensed copy of Office Standard. Last year, through work, I purchased a copy of Office Professional through the Home Use Program and installed it on the desk top.


    I recently purchased a new laptop and wish to:

    1. Install and register the Home Use Program software on the laptop

    2. Reinstall or re-register the OEM software on the Desktop



    1. The EULA specifically states that the license may be transfered to another PC but that it then must be uninstalled from the first.  Am I correct to assume that the Home Use License is only good for one PC and that the software may not be registered on two different PC's?


    I have the OEM disks that originally came with the desktop. I suppose I install the Home Use Program version on the new laptop, uninstall from the desk top, and then reinstall  the OEM version on the desk top. How then, do I re-register this circus?


    Thanks in advance.
