    Hi,

    I bought a Laptop (HP) 2 months ago and it has windows 8 in it. I'm having problems with the laptop and I want to buy a new one but I installed office 2010 to it. Now I want to know if you can please help me transfer that to another laptop. Is there any way to do It???? Microsoft Office has a CD but I installed it through the code Because my Laptop doesn't have CD-Rom.
    Please help me

    When you purchased it for installation online, A backup of your software and your product key are available online for you to access anytime, whether your computer crashes or you want to reinstall your software.
    Here is a link with some info concerning this:

    If you purchased from another sire, the same should apply.
    Note: you may need to purchase the Backup DVD, usually $15 from what I have seen.

    Use the activation code on your new laptop so all the other info transfers, then get a memory stick to transfer word documents

    If you have tho old laptop still, one of the last things to do before you do whatever you will with it, Office (your purchase) should be uninstalled. The product you installed from code on the new laptop is the one that is licensed to you that you can take with you. If your new laptop has a DVD and you have the DVD for installation, all you need is your product key to install it on the new computer. Any files you need can be transferred like Vaiohelp suggested, by USB backup, or, if not too many, simply email them to your email and retrieve that way. A DVD player or Burner is a good investment at pennies on the dollar now if the new laptop does not have one installed. Note: if the laptop came with Office as a package, and you bought the CD for that package, the license most likely belongs to that laptop. If you bought a newer, even an upgrade DVD - that belongs to you. You will have to verify with the Seller / Microsoft. IE) - You return it to store - Office is part of the laptop without the new office you purchased. Next person to buy that laptop can renistall original office from their Recovery using the same product key and cause a licensing conflict.
