One copy of Microsoft Office may suffice for multiple machines, saving you the cost and hassle of purchasing redundant copies of the same software. Achieving this will require a “Volume Licensing Key” which is an official authorization that allows you to use the same piece of software on more than one computer at a time. While getting this key isn’t free, it’s sure to be less expensive than buying a copy of Office for each machine. Things you will need

contact Microsoft or your computer manufacturer to obtain a volume license key for your copy of Office. This key will consist of a product key that is designed to work on more than one machine at a time, allowing you to register multiple copies of Office at the same time without any problems. Microsoft’s Volume Licensing website is www.Microsoft.com / licensing / about- licensing / how – volume- licensing – works.aspx.
install one copy of Office on one computer at a time, using the single copy of Office to install the software on each machine. Enter the Volume Licensing Product Key ID during the setup process to activate each copy of Office.
complete the software registration process either online (following the instructions displayed during the installation process) or by telephone (by calling the toll-free number that appears during the installation process). Completing your registration using your valid Volume Licensing Key will prevent Office from automatically deactivating itself after the specified period, granting you full access to product updates for all computers.
