    I have a discounted version of Microsoft Word and get 2 activations. Activated on my first iMac and then again on my MBP. Just installed SSD and it says I've maxed out my product key. I tried to open it from the HDD but it still needs a new product key. Can anyone think of a workaround for this or am I gonna have to bite the bullet on this one?

    Call MS and say you want to use the application you bought from them. Activations is not equal installations but active installations.

    Just call them and tell them you swapped HDDs. They'll fix it for you.
