Transferring Office 2013 Retail License to a New Computer
Posted on 2014-09-29
Has anyone reading this ever successfully transferred a retail copy of Microsoft Office 2013 (Home & Business or Professional) from one computer to another? This is allowed now by Microsoft once every 90 days or if the hardware fails, but their site says you must call the activation center to do this. I need to know:
A. Does this work?
B. How long does it take? / Was it easy?
C. What kinds of questions does the activation center person ask before allowing this?
We are buying about 25 licenses and must decide whether the extra cost for the volume license (about $2000 above the retail license) is worth paying for. Some of the computers using these licenses will undoubtedly need replacing in the next year or so.
