Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus

Want to put Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus on a virtual server for one of my clients so that all of their computers have network access to a "functioning" Office program. Is this legal? If not, I will find a legal way to achieve the same goal.

If it is legal how do I move this Office program from the computer (not a server) that it is on to the virtual server? Can an ISO file be mounted onto a virtual server?
I have a total of 11 computers that need Office.

We are working with very old XP computers at a non-profit here. Hence my worries that any of this will work.

You need to have as many licenses as people who will use the program simultaneously. So if all 11 are using it, then you need 11 licenses.

You can get Office very inexpensively if you are a bona-fide not for profit. You can ask your regular software vendor or you can go to Tech Soup and see if they can supply the licenses.

Office 2010 runs on XP Pro so cheap licenses on each computer is probably your best approach.
