I have a desktop computer running Windows XP. It came with a trial edition of Microsoft Office 2003 Student and Teacher Edition. I purchased the software once the trial was up and I have the purchased CD. We have a high school student living in the house, so we do qualify. I installed the program with the CD so we now have the full and permanent license on the desktop computer.

We are about to purchase a notebook computer and it will have Microsoft Office 2007 Student and Teacher trial edition on it. It is running Windows Vista Home Premium. The 2003 Office license allows me to install Office 2003 on up to 3 home computers. Would I be able to use my 2003 Office on the new notebook computer? Or can I just transfer the license somehow? Would it work if I just entered the license key for my 2003 Office? That would be SO great if it did!

Re: Valid Office 2003 license with Office 2007?

You won't be able to transfer the license to Office 2007, but you will be able to install and use Office 2003 as long as you have not use all 3 licenses it runs just fine on Vista.
Also to note many collage book stores have real deals on Software for eligible students like
Office Premium for less than $100.00. Key word eligible students

Re: Valid Office 2003 license with Office 2007?

Thanks for your reply, wrench97.

I ended up ordering a Lenovo Thinkpad which will have Windows XP Pro (I didn't know that was even possible anymore, but I'm glad it is!) The notebook does have a trial version of Office 2007, but I think what I'll end up doing is uninstalling that and just installing my Office 2003 Student and Teacher Edition from the CD I bought. I've only installed it on one PC so far, and the license allows for 3, so it's legal.

From what I understand, Office 2007 just uninstalls from the Add/Remove programs part of the Control Panel, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Looking forward to the new laptop. :grin:
