If you are going to buy the Microsoft Office 2013 then remember to install it on your new PC or notebook which you will be using for a long time. Office 2013 software licence can be activated on a single only but the worst part is that it can’t be transferred to another PC.
It was possible to transfer the licence of Office 2010 to another PC but Microsoft has announced that Office 2013 software licence can't be reassigned to another computer.
When Inquirer asked what will happen in the event that the original PC carrying the single Microsoft Office 2013 licence is destroyed, lost or stolen. Will Microsoft allow the original licence to be transferred then?
Microsoft said it is looking into this, and we will report its answer as soon as we know.
