    MS Office 10

    I hope someone can help me on this. I had Office 2010(Office 14?) Word, Excel and PPT installed on W7. When I "refreshed" they all ended up in windows.old. They do not work. Of course, since I bought them 2 and 1/2 years ago, I have neither the CD nor the user ID. Any suggestions?

    Your office should install without any problem, using the serial key that you have.
    Only one problem can be with online activation.

    This is how it works:
    When you activate MS software, serial key becomes locked for some time (about 6 months). This is to prevent sharing your serial with other people. However, if during that period u need to reinstall software, there is always option to activate by phone, and this one will always work. (unless your key is blacklisted for piracy, but that could happen only if there will be hundreds of activation attempts every month )

    License is for 'computer', so it should be absolutely ok to have multiple instalations on the same computer under different operating systems. also if you are doing MS a favor by testing their beta software (they receive automatic feedback, error logs etc to solve problems before releasing final product), they shouldn't have anything against using MS Office with it, even if u already exhausted your standard allowance of installations

W8 to go Office activations - Office 2007 enterprise is fine
Hi there much as I like Office 2010 and will continue to use it I find it a bit frustrating to have to re-activate it every time I use my Win 8 to go system on different computers -- even though I do have an Enterprise version. The Enterprise version of Office 2007 seems much more tolerant -- I...
