How many times can I reinstall MS Office Home and Student 2010?

5 pts.
Tags:
Microsoft Windows 7
I read that I can install MS Office Home and Student 2010 on 3 computers. If I install/activate it on my computer, computer crashes, then reinstall/reactivate it on the same computer - would that count as 2 separate installations/activations?

Software/Hardware used:
MS Office Home and Student 2010, WIndows 7

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

According to the tech support of my college, as long as you uninstall the program and then re-install it on the same machine, you should be able to do it until the time runs out. I also had the same problem and that is the answer tech support gave me and so far, I have done it four times with no problems.

    U may install as many times as ur desire. But remember, it may be activated on 3 computers at any one time only and Off-home / student eula states that the SW may not be used for commercial / non-profit / even revenue-generating activities. Read the license agreement throughly. Hope, u will understand. If it will create too complex, then go for Libre Office / Open Office (totally free) for the same purpose.

    Office university will not reinstall 2010keeps telling me that my product code in invaled what do I Do   Most likely you'll ask Office University what to do and follow their directions. The Contact Us link at the bottom of the Office University 2010 site should get you close.   Tom

    I had a PUP Astromenda and had to restore to factory specs.  Wiped out everything and I tried to reload office home and student 2010.  First I could not chat with a support tech.  Second I had to phone, and they wanted me to PAY to fix this.  I do not feel I should have to pay to reload something I already paid for!  This is a rip off!

    You may have to contact Microsoft Licensing on this issue so they can reset your usage number in their system.  I have had this happen when I had system hard drive crash, and I contacted them to have the count reset.  They did it at the same time they reset the count for the O/S.  There is also a registry hack that is provided by Microsoft to reset the License key. number.  I have Office 365 five user license installed on my system which means that I can install it 5 places.  I do have to uninstall it, notify Microsoft that I have uninstalled it, to clear my license count for a specific machine, and then I can install it somewhere else.

    As long as it is on the same motherboard, which the software detects when installing, you can do it as many times as needed.  I asked the same question for server 2008 from Microsoft, and that is the answer they gave me.
