I purchased a stand-alone version of Office XP which I installed on my HP computer. Several years later when I paid $70 to have Best Buy check it and report that it was not economically feasible to repair it, I had them scrap it and purchased a new Acer which I then downgraded from Vista to XP.

After installing Office XP I saw notices telling me that I had only a certain number of "openings" left until the program would fail to function. I attempted to register the XP version with Microsoft but the menu-driven instructions made no provision for my circumstances and I was disconnected. Furthermore I was unable to reach anyone from Microsoft to assist me.

I understand that it's illegal to install my program on more than one computer but the original machine has been scrapped and I have the paperwork to substantiate it. Under those circumstances - with proof that the original computer has been destroyed - shouldn't I be eligible to reinstall the program?

Do you have the original hard drive?

Do you know anyone else running Office XP?

Edit: I know what you mean, I had a fully licensed version of MS Office and when I got the BSoD they wouldn't give me a replacement key or anything.

If you have AT LEAST the key, just try using it. The most that will happen is "Your key has been used on a different computer" or something like that.
