I need to ask a question that might be very simple to others.I bought a new Dell laptop and need to uninstall Office 2007 on the old laptop in order to re-install on the new laptop.I do not want to use another licence as the package is for 5 users only. Could I just uninstall on the old laptop, recall, if that is the word,the licence and then use same licence on the new laptop. How do I retain the licence? Tx

If you have a license for 5 users, then you can install and run the software on 5 computers at a time.

If you really want to remove it from the old computer, just go to the Add/Remove programs and Remove it.

When you install the software on the new computer, just enter the License number that's on the CD case.

As Jennifer says, just uninstall Office from the old laptop.
Install from original disk and use the same License number.

When installed you will be asked to activate - over the internet or by phone - select over the internet, and you should be activated and good to go without using up any additional licenses.

I recently removed Office 2007 from my old PC and installed it on my new PC - using the original CD and the original license key. There were no problems - it activated OK and runs just fine.
