Office 2007 product activation issues. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently bought a new laptop, as my old one was slowly dying. When I reinstalled my Office 2007 (Using the original cd and key), the product activation step failed. It said that I had exceeded the amount of installations on different Pcs.

    After reading the terms of use (again), I have the right to install my office on my PC and one laptop (which is what I did). But I think I know where the problem comes from :

    Two months ago, my motherboard burned on my pc, so I had it fixed and had to reinstall everything on the computer. Now, I bought a new laptop so i'm guessing Microsoft counts that as being 4 different computers (two pcs and two laptops)?

    How can I fix this? I am respecting everything in the terms of use by having only one PC and one laptop with the program.

    Thank you,
