    Ummm, just playing Devil's Advocate, but if it's an OEM version, in the true spirit of an EULA, should you be trying to transfer it to another device?
    It's not going to another device, it would be installed on the same PC - just with Windows changed from x86 to x64.

    Ah- there's the catch- I don't think those programs support x86-> x64 - at least they hadn't used to.

    Otherwise, given it's a clean install, the program per se presumably wouldn't know it's the same physical PC anyway...

    Aye, there's the rub. It does seem I'd need to find a way to reinstall Excel/Word/Powerpoint, but as I said these would need to be done with the individual standalone installers for these Office 2007 apps. I have found this though for backing up and restoring the activation.
