Hmmm... Maybe the laptop+desktop licenses are for Enterprise? Employees who work on both an office desktop and travel laptop?

Ok, i looked into it. Apparently what i was saying is not true for windows, but it is true for all Microsoft Office applications. They can be installed on one desktop and one laptop, provided they are owned by you. This is from the EULA for Office 2007:

Quote:
2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. Before you use the software under a license, you must assign that license to one device. That device is the “licensed device.† A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate device.
a.Licensed Device. You may install and use one copy of the software on the licensed device.
b.Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.

Sorry for the confusion.

ahhh now i see where i have got confused aswell!! (the MS office has different rules)

Its daft really u would think that once u own it, it should be yours to do what u want with it! just as long as your not selling it or distributing it to others.
