    I *think* you actually fall within legal usage (by some definitions of legal anyhow <g>) - but I'd check with your FiL that he still holds the license first.
    ...again, Dan is better-versed in this than I am.

    You may have a problem :(
    Office Professional Plus is only available through Volume Licensing channels - if you purchased it retail, then you were sold a counterfeit.
    My understanding is that your current installs will continue to work, but if for any reason they require re-activation, then it will fail.
    Dan or Darin will probably be along later to fill in the blanks :)

  • Hello 999steve999,

    As Noel posted, there could be a problem with your Office.  Could you provide very specific details about your purchase---from whom, how, exactly what materials you received, etc?
