License Issue

  recap 10:55 15 Feb 2007

Here at work, we have just bought 4 laptops. We have 20 desktop PC's all running MS Office 2003 (Volume Lincense). Not all these desktops are running at any one time.

The laptops will be used primarily for off site use.

My question is this: can I install Office 2003 on these laptops without infringing the EULA?

How many licenses do you have for Office 2003?

Hi recap,

A search for Office 2003 EULA brought this

click here

It seems that each one can be installed to two machines providing one is portable. This probably assumes that it is not OEM. Still checking that side.

Zero G, there are 20 licenses in the volume.

ventanas, I wasn't sure whether the two rule applied to volume licensing or not. It's not OEM software.

Or if the Office license doesn't work out, you could install OpenOffice click here and set the default save formats to Word, Excel etc. Fully open source, no license issues and no costly visits from FAST.

Thanks I had forgot about OpenOffice of which I do have a disc.

If all 20 licenses were being used at once then the 21st user could not use it. The best way round it is as others have stated is put on Open Office.
