    Hi guys, just bought a copy of microsoft office 2008 for mac with 3 product keys, but i only have one mac, and 9 PC's. I am running Windows 7 on my Mac, and i wanted to know if i could download a free trial version of it from microsoft, then enter my mac product key for the full version. oh also i only own 2 PC's and 1 Mac that are my own computers. The rest we share, but i use my mac the most, just so u guys dont say my name is ironic. anyway thanks for the help!

    Nope, wouldn't work and would violate the EULA.

    i can see the part of it not working, but how would it violate the EULA? i mean it is still a Microsoft product. No offense to you, I'm just wondering.

    It's not a license for product x, it's a license for product y. While I understand that the differences are minute, the licenses are not for the same product.

    Yeah. The more important part is it not working. By the same token, Office 04 and 08 have two separate licenses, etc...

    I think the most glaring problem is that there is no Office 2008 for Windows :p
