    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.

    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.
