Hi, i purchased Office XP pro version some time ago, and was installed onto
my laptop, my laptop has since crashed and died, i'd like to install it onto
my new one, however obviously my licence is associated with my old laptop.
Is there anyway of changing my computer license legitimately, or will i have
to crack it?


Many Thanks in advance


Gavin.

Install it, you have the key for that.

It's product activation, you have 50 goes before Office goes to reduced
function mode.

>to crack it?


Smart move, the last one......

The installation ID includes an encrypted form of the product key and a
hardware identifier (no personal data is included). This means that if
you overhaul your personal computer by replacing a substantial number of
hardware components, you may have to re-activate Office. If this should
occur, you can call the telephone number displayed on the activation
screen to re-activate the software.
