Im thinking about reinstalling xp home to clear some of the clutter that has acculamated over the years. When i come, after the windows reinstall, to reinstall all my old apps i was wondering when i reinstall ms office will this reduce the number of installs im allowed to do with it, if that makes sense.
Ill rephrase, ms office allows 3 installs, when i reinstall office will this mean i will have one less install even though its on the same pc?
HUH? Happy Sould thanks for the help, but you kinda missed the question, ill rephrase. I want to reinsstall windows xp. Now i have microsoft office installed. When i reinstall xp and then reinstall microsoft office (that i use) will it count towards the number of installs im allowed to have (a limit of 3)? Bearing in mind it is the same pc, with no hardware changes.
If you're doing an "over the top" re-install you shouldn't need to do Office as well. A reformat and install will need an Office install but as I'm assuming your Office on a CDROM how does it count them?
Lol, i though some magazines and websites reccomended reinstall the os every year, cosidreing this pc is 3 years old.
Yes it is a full retaisl version of office on a cd, i dont know how it counts them. I get 3 installs, ive used one and was wondering wheter it would use another if i reinstalled it (even though it was the same pc)
