I have an old PC that required a new Motherboard, this was sorted. I bought small Laptop PC and I loaded the Microsoft Office applications that I had loaded on my old PC. All Microsoft applications were then 'activated' on new Laptop (Windows 7) which works now. Old PC still has the original Microsoft Office applications. On going on Internet and updating everything, the Old PC now tells me that I cannot use the Office Applications without 'activating' them either via Internet or phone. If I want to use the Office Applications on both machines under the original license, will I have to contact Microsoft to buy an additional PC use license so I can still use the Office Applications on my old PC? Is there anyway round this where I don't have to contact Microsoft.
