Silly Question, but is your XP software 'Hookey'.
If so, SR1 detects this and will refuse to install, however if all is well, you can always download the upgrades manually, by going to help & Support>>Updates and load from there .

is it possible to install office xp on both my laptop and my desktop. I am confused by my seaarches on the web for the answer to this question as it appears to be both not possible and possible. Any advice before I buy it or should I buy office 2000 instead. Many thanks for any replys.

No problem if you are the only user. MS Office is licensed to a Single User

(as opposed to a married one! I suppose)

thanks for the reply, but how does this work? that is how does microsoft know that I am the only user.What is required to load office xp on to two machines owned by one person, married or not!
Thanks in advance
