I would contact the seller - I see no reason why it would contain two licenses and according to this - it only has ONE:

Note: Some office versions allow second installs if YOU have a second computer that only you use - for example, if you have a home desktop and a laptop, you may be allowed to install it on both if you are the primary user of both.  Read the license agreement for more details.

You may read the actual text of the EULA on Microsoft's site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=2b37ad5e-dc64-400b-a00d-88d982292b07&CTT=5&origin=HA101817777

Confirming leew, page 1 of the EULA states the following (for RETAIL copies of Office 2010):

a. One Copy per Device. You may install one copy of the software on one
device. That device is the “licensed device.”
b. Licensed Device. You may only use one copy of the software on the
licensed device at a time.
c. Portable Device. You may install another copy of the software on a
portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device."

So if the second post CONFIRMED what I said, why didn't you split the points?

Since my Comment confirmed and added supporting documentation to leew's assertion that only one license was supplied with the box, don't you think the points ought to have been split? Hoping that you will agree, I have reopened the question (acting in my capacity as Microsoft Office Zone Advisor).
