    How to check how many activation are in use for Office 2007


    Hi all.

    In 2008, I purchased 2 DVD copies of Office Home and Student 2007.

    This means that I have a total of 6 activation of the program. (Office 2007 and 2010 give you 3 licenses per DVD, while 2013 only gives you 1)

    Over the years, I've upgraded computers, hard drives, reformatted, etc. etc. and all I've done to "unregister" Office 2007 from my computer was to simply uninstall it from Control Panel whilst connected to the Internet. I always did this, in hope that I would be unregistering my product key. Upon reinstalltion, I could always reactivate with no problems. (Except for a few times where I've forgotten that one of my DVDs had ran out of the 3 licenses, and that I had to use the other one to activate).


    However, now, I'm curious if there's a way to check how many activations I've used, and also, if there's a way to "clear" all 3 activations on both DVDs in order to "start fresh".

    Anyone know how to do this with Office 2007?

    I don't think there is a way. Once you reach a certain limit of installs on different hardware in a certain period of time, the programs will fail to activate automatically over the internet and then you just call the activation phone number, enter the Installation ID, and a computer voice will ask you on how many computers you have the product installed. Answer one, and the computer voice will give you the activation ID to enter.
