    All I can say is I've reinstalled office 2007 many times and on at least 5 different computers
    Not to mention a couple of reinstalling/ reactivating on those computers plus installing and reinstalling on 2 different win-10 installs.
    The small business version I bought through MS was indeed not cheap
    I got it as soon as it was released
    Actually bought office 2003 but MS just released office 2007 and I called them and said I wanted the newer version
    It was pretty smooth process they didn't even want the 2003 disk set back it was never installed.
    I believe the 2007 small business version was about
    But it can be installed on many computers I just don't know how many :)

    So not sure what's up with your office activating problem
    I always love the terms MS uses they create confusion trying to use plain English

    Well I will keep it as short as I can and say that I was just disappointed with such comments as BS, cow excrement not to mention what I took to be inferences by some replies to this post that I was some sort of nit wit stirrer and unnecessary stuff like that.
    I might add that I shall not be posting anything like that again in this or the 7 forum which I have been a member as most will know for many years and I shall just stick to problems that affect myself and my machines.
    I don't pretend to be anything more than semi literate with computers but all the same I don't need to be replied to in that fashion either even though I might have been reading that article in perhaps the wrong way about that topic that or may not have had any substance.
    John, no one in this thread, that I have seen, has made any reference to you. All replies I have read were talking about the poster on the Macrium Forums. His comments were Speculation at best, pure garbage and trolling at worst. You obviously misunderstood the replies. They made no reference to you or your question.

    Nothing wrong with seeking clarification over something you don't know is genuine or not, especially with the amount of false or misleading information found on the web these days. As others have said none of the negative comments were or even appeared to directed at you.

    Look I am going to mark my thread as solved but before I go I wanted to say that I was very disappointed with some of the comments that were made about my post which was meant to be a simple query and I am left wondering if some are inferring that I am a stirrer and don't know what I am talking about. Well I admit I might not be as clever as most even not coming close but I think a little more diplomacy would not have gone astray in this instance.

    However I want to thank those who did explain things to me in a positive manner I do appreciate it.
    I replied bs in response to article. No way was that comment directed at you, or other comments.

    jimbo45, Where is and which EXE do I call up for grsync? I installed it, I do not recognize where and what :)
    Jimbo -- thanks for the gracious reply! I was in a very noisy classroom and was distracted. I will save grsync for a linux DVD boot.

    Well for what it is worth my original post was more to do with the statement that was made in the Macrium Forum I am not a member of that forum so I in no way was inferring anything untoward with Macrium. The comment could have come from any source as far as I was concerned and it remains that it was the comment that raised some doubts in my mind as to what Microsoft are or may be planning to do.
    I started way back when a computer - an old Commodore 64 to be exact and over the years and quite a few machines Microsoft have brought out systems and services that one paid money for and it seems to me that they have now cottoned onto the fact that it is possible to charge an annual fee for using some services. My point about Office I am really ticked off with because I bought the right to use that software only to find that it can only be activated by a code - much in the same way as an OS but the Office software which is now well and truly outdated I cannot and I lost that right because of having to reinstall Windows on machines the Office 2007 and 2010 were installed on and personally that is an obvious way of wringing more money out of me because of the draconian licence agreement terms.
    Some of the comments that were made by certain members of this forum re either me or what I first posted I found unnecessary and to em quite distasteful.
    I am not going to say anymore on the subject and if I have any problems with any machine I have 10 on then I shall ask in here if I cannot find an answer via Google because that is all I shall come on this forum for. In all honesty I cannot believe such an off the cuff remark which is all I originally meant it to be has caused such a long and drawn out debate.
