    Can I move preinstalled Office 2007 to a new PC?

    I have Office 2007 (Word and Excel) that was pre-installed on a Win 7 PC and "activated". I'm moving to a new Win 7 PC and would like to know if there is a way to move Office. I do not have an installation CD. Thanks for any help.

    You can try downloading from here: http://www.microsoft.com/office/downloads/

    I
    f it is an OEM version, you may not be able to activate it. If you aren't, maybe give Microsoft a call, but don't hold your hopes high.

    Judy, Welcome to the Lounge. It's always nice to see new members.

    Unfortunately I also do not think we have good news for you. As Rui states, I suspect you will not be able to activate the pre-install OEM version from one PC to another, even with a call to MS but it's worth a call to them to find out.

    It worked!

    Will wonders never cease? I was able to download from office/downloads, as suggested, using my Product Key. Didn't even have to call Microsoft (whew!). Have activated it and it is working

    Great. Microsoft can be positively surprising, fortunately .
