On how many computers can I legaly install and activate one MS Office 2010 suite?

Since the new Microsoft Office 2010 is on the market, we always get this questions from customers.

On how many computers can I legally  install and activate a license of my Microsoft Office 2010 version?

Well, to find that out, you need to read all the Microsoft Software License Terms and you need to understand them too.

Here a short and understandable version from a license specialist:

How many licenses /installations do Office Product Key Cards allow (this is what you buy, when you have a preinstalled MS Office on your new computer)?

Every Product Key Card will allow one user to activate one Office 2010 suite on one preloaded PC.

How many licenses /installations are allowed with the traditional Office discs version?

The number of installations is different, depending on the Office suite which was purchased. The disc version of Office Home and Student 2010 allows a user to install one copy of the software on up to three PCs in a single household for non-commercial use.

Office Home and Student 2010 cannot be used for any commercial, non-profit or revenue generating activity or by any governmental organization.

The disc version of Office Home and Business 2010 and Office Professional 2010 allows one user to install one copy on one PC and a second copy on his portable device like a laptop.
