MS Office - license
how do i know if mine is unlicensed?

 10:45 am on Sep 28, 2004 (gmt 0)

I would like to know if the desktop or computers that are under my care in this small office enviroment of mine have all been installed with license software.

I would like to check especially that of the Microsoft Office programs, because the CD's I have with me doesn't tally.

Have you tried the "How to tell" section on the MS website? There are some good resources there:

Here's a tip for you: If you join the Microsoft Partner Program you'll get several free licences of Office and various other MS packages.

It costs $199 and sometimes that's cheaper than doing all the research into legality of current licences.

Ok thanks guys will have to get new licenses then.

A license isn't a CD.

For OEM or FPP (Full Packaged Product) software, you must of the Certificate of Authenticity and the End User License Agreement.

For MOLP and Select, it is the Open License Certificates which are now stored online.
