Activation: How many times may I install this software?
Each individual eligible to use software under the Microsoft Campus Agreement is licensed for one (1) copy of each product. Individuals with multiple qualifying eligibilities (i.e. student and employee) are still only licensed for one copy of each product.
The license for Windows operating system upgrade software entitles you to install the software on one computer only. If you have additional computers, you will need to purchase retail copies of the Microsoft Windows operating system for them.
Under the one license for applications in the Microsoft Office System (e.g. Office XP Professional, Office 2003 Professional, Publisher 2003, etc.), applications can be installed on two systems. Per the Microsoft Office End-User License Agreement:
1.1 Installation and use. You may:
(a) install and use a copy of the Software on one personal computer or other device ; and
(b) install an additional copy of the Software on a second, portable device for the exclusive use of the primary user of the first copy of the Software.
Student and faculty/staff work-at-home media can be used to install and activate both installations using the product key included. At no time will an additional copy of the installation media or product be provided for the purpose of multiple installations.
Please note, installation and activation are two completely separate processes.
