    licensing office (2000)

    I have a client who is still using Office 3.1. Obviously this is a BIG issue for us. They are getting ready to install a new network next year. In the meantime is there a "problem" with me giving them my old (previously used...not used any longer) office 2000?

    Is your old version an OEM one that came with a PC or a retail one?
    Did you buy an upgrade to a later version or a complete new version?

    If this was a retail boxed copy of Office and you have not used it to obtain an upgrade then your End User License Agreement may well include the right to transfer it to another user - but you would have to read the EULA yourself to be sure.

    Stuart: It was a boxed version. I have not used it to obtain an upgrade.
    I just want to make sure they won't have any "legal licensing" issues or problems.

    A flag might be raised during registration.... * just a consideration* - maybe -
