Forced PC update...

  BEANS 19:58 19 Aug 2005

I am using an activated copy of Word XP on W98SE. Unfortunately, the PC has become unrepairable and a replacement PC is on its way.
This new PC will use Windows XP - which I will activate directly the new machine is in use.
Can I reload and activate myexisting copy of Word XP - I have the upgrade CD.

If it is "retail" then yes (you may need to contact Microsoft and explain though). But if it is "OEM" then no.
