I have windows 8.0 laptop with multiple accounts set up.  I have Microsoft Office installed but it appears I can only get to MS Office on the account I installed it on and activated.  Do I have to buy another MS Office License for each account on my laptop or is there a way for me to access this product from my other account.

Applications are installed per user in windows 8.
Ireceived an email  saying our office licenses allow for installing on 5 devices, yet to try though.
You need to install office for each user but can activate office with the same key for upto 5 user

another way M$ makes money now requiring each user to have the software installed. I doubt I will ever move to windows 8 soon
