I'm just about to change my computer for all sorts of reasons. As a silver haired old wrinkly, and sec to several local organisations I use " Office 2000 Professional" which I bought for about £400 give or take £50 in about 2001. I have just been told by the suppliers of my new computer that because I bought and registered the programme tho my old computer I can't download and use it on my new computer. I will have to buy a new "Office Professional" for my new computer. Is this so??
Hmm, could that piece of advice from your supplier be anything to do with a desire to sell you an expensive full version of Office 2003? Even if you do want the update, you can do it as a (much cheaper) upgrade: as VoG suggests, install your Office 2000 on the new machine then buy the upgrade
They are telling you a load of bull. The only problem you will have is on your new computer which I assume will have XP. Just put in your disk and install, if there are any problems go to Office update site and download the latest updates. As Vog says there is no reason to worry if you bought it and have the registration key.
