Dell blocking OME Software

  raysophie 07:51 28 Apr 2004

Have purchased Dell laptop with bundled software when I have tried to use this to update my desk top it says 'not Dell computer' as I have paid for this software I feel I should be able to use it on my other machine as this will keep them the same. Any suggestions?

An office I once worked in had a series of HPVectra mchines with Office97 - the CDs with office would only work on the specific machines that they came with.

Does the software licence say that it is OEM? If so, then it was sold only to be used with specific hardware. You did not buy the software, only the right to use it in accordance with the EULA.
