which can be located in your Microsoft Office directory tells you basically how you can sell or give away your licensed copy of Office.
If it was an upgrade from a previous version that previous version must accompany all the software.
What will be necessary in your case (since you want it in your name but it is already installed) is for you to get all the necessary installation disks from your friend. Next you uninstall it from the computer. When you re-install it you MUST choose the telephone activation method and simply explain the situation. You then register it in your name also.
I just bought a computer from a friend, and he is willing to transfer ownership of all the software on it to me, mainly so that I can upgrade it in my name in the future. Adobe was easy to do (they have a very easy-to-find webpage that explains the process), but Microsoft is confusing me. I found their page about transferring part of a volume license, but nothing about transferring ownership of a single license.
Does anyone know how to do this? Would someone please direct me to their official information on transferring license ownership?
Thank you very much!
