XP Professional- question, will Works Suite 2002 run on th..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Hi, I just bought a used laptop from a friend. It came with XP
Professional on there. I need to put on word, etc...


My question- I have a desktop that I bought running XP Home- the
desktop (I bought that one new) came with XP preinstalled and with a cd
that has word on it, the cd says Works Suite 2002.
Will I be able to run this Works Suite 2002 on the used laptop that is
running XP professional?

Thanks

    If your question is in regards to compaibility, then YES, any software that
    can run on Home edition can also run on Professional.

    If you question is in regards to the licencing, then that would be dependent
    on whether the End-User Licence Agreement allows the installation on more
    than one machine within the same household. There is no harm in trying, the
    worse that could happen is that it will not allow you to install/run the
    software, and you can simply remove it if that is the case. Doing so will
    not harm your computer.

    If the product requires activation, I can confidently say that it will not
    allow you to run on more than one computer. MS Office 2003 is a good example
    of this.

    Yes it will run but no you cannot install it. It came with your other
    computer, it is therefore OEM and the MS licensing agreement states that OEM
    software is forever tied to the system it was sold with. If you want Works
    Suite on your laptop you're going to have to purchase it again.

    It is not your place to tell anyone what they *have* to do, or what they
    *can't* do. Is it?

    There is no activation except for word. Install it.
