Transferreing Office Small Business to a new computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently we own 2 laptops, 1 has Office SB on it, the 2nd is brand new. We previously owned another laptop that crashed and had it repaired by BestBuy who ended up erasing the hard drive completely, including the Windows Operating System. Now we still have the old erased hard drive that is not being used at the moment due to its lack of contents, but we want to have our 2 laptops to both have Office Small Business 2007 on them just so that we dont need to keep both laptops with us when we travel. Is there any process we can do to determine that the old copy of the program on the old laptop is no longer being used so that we can be allowed to download it onto our new laptop? We know that for Office Small Buisiness 2007 is only allowed to have 2 pcs its programmed on, we want it to be on our 2 laptops that work, 1 already has it, the brand new one only has the pre-programmed 60-day trial version... Is there any process that can help us achieve this?
