remove 1 computer from registration to add new one to key

Hi, I have Office 2003 and I'm guessing it will not allow me to install it
onto an additional computer because maybe I've used up all off my key
assignments? It's not allowing me to enter the Key(2003) code after I remove
1997 from this thing. Is there any way I can "unregister" a couple of the
computers using my key that are now obsolete? Thanks,and have a great day!!

Nicole

Hi Nicole,

There isn't a check on the CD installation key when running setup (i.e. it doesn't have a 'counter'. There is a check on the
product activation key, which is machine specific and does monitor the number of times a particular CD installation key has been
used as part of activation.

If you can install Office 2003 you may need to use the telephone activation method to explain the scenario to the activation folks.
There isn't a deactivation procedure built into the Office programs.

Provided your license is a retail edition, and it allows for multiple
installations, uninstall on old PC and reinstall on new, you may have to use
phone activation.
If its an OEM version its tied to a single PC that it was origonally
installed on.

Does this also apply to office 2007? I'm trying to move my product key to my
new computer.
