    License Issue (XP and 2003)

    I heard that the license of Office 2003 for Student and Teacher allows users to install it in up to 3 computers at home. Does the Office XP for Student and Teacher have the same license?

    Dave,

    The link you provided was for Office 2003. I know Office 2003 allows up to 3 PCs at home by reading from Amazon. My question was if Office XP for Teacher and Student allows the user to install it on up to 3 computers at home too.

    Dennis--

    The answer is first you must use if for non-commercial educational use only. In a household only students can use it, but parents can assist--or as in a couple of my friends' households, the 12 year old is the IT manager of the house anyway so that'd work in those homes. You can install it on one computer and if you have more than one computer you must purchase a separate product license for each. As with S&T 2003 it doesn't qualify for future upgrading. You also can't upgrade to it. I gotta say this though, Dennis considering the low price of MOS Student and Teacher 2003 and the price breaks on Student and Teacher XP--unless you already have it or someone is giving it to you for practically zip--I'd go with 2003 because you can install that on 3 machines as MJ pointed out out a couple weeks ago.

    Office XP Licensing for Student and Teachers

    Also for your reference and convenience, here is a list of all the 2003 licenses set-ups:

    EULA's MOS 2003

    I understand sales and getting the new product out there, but I think but Microsoft has taken 99% of the links <img src=/S/invisible.gif border=0 alt=invisible width=15 height=15>--because I answered this question on some newsgroups last week, and converted them to MOS 2003 Student and Teacher edition's web page--in other words, most of the links for that answer I had in my history, took me to 2003 as if Office XP is not on the planet. I think that's somewhat funny and somewhat goofy. Obviously there are people who want it--feature wise it sure as heck isn't a lot different although after watching the Outlook demos and messing with it I do appreciate some of its new features like the caching feature if you're on the road stuck in a hotel that doesn't have very broad bandwidth and also the transmitting servers are pretty far removed from you--downloading the headers and previewing the email can save time.

    But the power of google will not be daunted and here you are--BTW for what it's worth a number of people who report on MS for a living have said in their newsletters that they prefer Google hands down over MS's new revamped site search for searching it's site and use it. Mary Jo Foley says so in her excellent MS Watch.

    How are they enforcing that parents can help but not use the computer?--I'm pretty sure that Jeff Raikes Group VP Business Services, and Steve Sinofsky, Senior VP Office are going door to door checking out all the study sessions. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    SMBP,

    Yes, the 11-year old is the IT Manager of the house!

    I do a have a copy of S&T XP on house IT Manager's PC. When I saw the up-to-3 license of S&T 2003, I was wondering if S&T XP has the same license that will allow me to install it on my another future house IT Manger's PC. Unfortunatly, according to the link you provided, S&T XP is permitted to install on only one PC.

    Thanks,
