Hello
My daughter + I read the license for M.S. Home Office Student '07'.
It appears as tho you can let one third party use the disk so I used it on my pc.
In the future, if either of us needs to reinstall the os(with reformatting) can we call M.S. to ask them to activate the program as the activations/installs are maximized?
If so, what is the number? If not please tell me a bit about this.
Thank you

Usually it's once, but if you call them, and tell them you had to reload your OS, they will give you the activation code........

It will tell you if it's been activated to many times when you got to reinstall it, and then it will give you the 800 # to call along with a zillion digit reference code.

When you reinstall the program ---if it does not work--go back to activate by phone--
they will give you a number.
I have mine installed on 3 pc's w/ 2 reformats on one---have had no problem w/ reactivation.
Have fun................................

I forgot to ask, if I use '03' instead of '07' will I be sacrificing anything like security or support?
Thanx again

2003 is still widely used, so you won't have an issue.

Couldn't tell you if thats the correct #, the computer will give you the # to call if it's been activated too much.

I do not remeber seeing any number when the validation was rejected but that does not mean it was not there.
Thanx for the help with word -it's back to '03' for me.
