Office 2007 Enterprise Edition - how many PCs?
Posted on 2016-09-30
I'm needing Office 2007 for 8 computers. The best source seems to be eBay. I see for some listings that it can be installed on three PCs and for some others, five. But my question is this. One of the listings includes the caveat I've underlined and bolded below (I hope). Will I find when I get the product that I can't actually install on 5 PCs because I'm not a Volume Licensing Customer? Or does the reimaging refer to something in addition to installation on five machines? Does it refer perhaps to the seller's rights to have made the installation disk?

You will receive a CD disk with the installation software and a valid product key - 100% Guaranteed Activation! This includes the “original installation software” on a CD and “genuine product key” which you must enter for activation but it “does not come with the original CD”.
The product key is good for 5 installations on 5 different computers.
