Microsoft Office 2007 software in Region 2

  122375 14:20 02 Dec 2008

I'm considering purchasing Microsoft Office 2007 in the US when I travel there over the holidays, but am concerned that I won't be able to install the CD/DVD etc. on my laptop. Which I bought in Austria (where I reside). I would buy MS Office from, but it's so much cheaper in the US. Basically I want to know if the installation CD is coded for Region 1. I have a Toshiba which currently has the software installed on it that came with the laptop (basic word files etc. and although I speak German, I miss my mothertongue :) Hope some one can help cos I am a total beginner when it comes to PC stuff and would appreciate the advice.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Program Software is Region coded - I believe the Region codes only apply to Commercial Entertainment DVDs.

You're welcome - I am pretty sure that my comment is correct, as I can find no other option after doing a very extensive Google search.
