    I have MS Office Standard 2007-Military Appreciation Edition. It allows for use on three computers. One of my family computers died and I don't know how to transfer the use of MS office from the dead computer to my new one. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Once the Product is activated the only way to free up a license that I am aware of is to call Microsoft and ask them to deactivate the license.

    There shouldn't be any need to deactivate it, the terms normally allow you to uninstall or scrap & use on another computer up to the number limits

    if the computer doesn't work then that should be fine.

    install it on teh new computer & if you get activation problems a window will pop up with a contact number or email, use that to sort it out

    I have MS Office Standard 2007-Home and Student Edition. It also allows for use on three computers. When one of my computers died I called Microsoft and explained the situation to activate it with no problem.
