Hi. I have a PC with Office Professional Plus and I now have purchased a new PC and wanting to transfer office to this as the old PC will be disbanded. I have a back up disk but it needs to recognise the 25 digit number. Can you help.

Office professional plus 2010

Thank you

you have two options Rob.

1) Get the old computer running again and then use this program to get the 25 digit number that was used.

Click me to open

You run the program on the old computer and in the report it will tell you the code to use for the installation.

If you cannot get the old computer running, then your only other option is to contact Microsoft on 0844(NNN) NNN-NNNNand request the product code, though without proof of purchase, they may not release it to you.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
