Office License

I took over the IT area and in the process have been trying to get all the liecensing in ONE place.  The person before me purchased and installed Office Pro 2003.   The ONLY hing I can find about this transaction is a packing list when the CD was received.  How in the world can I find out how many licenses are valid for the key that I have.

I tried going through the vendor, but since it was 2005.....no help there.

I think I am ok on licensing, but I want to be SURE.

Is there anywhere with Microsoft that I can input the key and it will tell me the license count?

If you can find the reseller they may still have it in their Microsoft portal. MS may still have the details it depends if the purchase was a volume licence agreement or not. Microsoft do have a licensing department that can be contacted I am sure you will find the relevant contact number on their website but you may struggle to get them to find you.

Dollars to donuts that they only purchased one retail license.  Your bosses are not going to like you as you inform them of the additional licenses they need to purchase. A SOPA audit could really cost them money..

If you put the Office disk you have in a CD drive and open My computer the mounted volume will tell you if it Vol, OEM or retail.

You will need to google the code or post back here.
