  • Hello adeschamps,

    Please note that not all Microsoft Office software can be transfered to a new computer.

    As a general rule, software that cam preinstalled on the computer (OEM license) cannot be transfered to a new computer; software purchased in full retail packaging (full or upgrade retail) can be transfered.

    If you run this utility http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 on the computer that has the software now, and copy/paste the results into a response, we can tell you what you have.
