comment Can Excel show a formula and its result simultaneously?
Thank you for disclosing your affiliation. It does looks like you do have previous contributions on Stack Exchange, which is great, but I would suggest re-reading the self promotion policy just to be safe. You haven't done anything wrong, but oftentimes when users see somebody whose only answers on the site are promoting something they made, they flag it as spam. It would also improve this answer if you could include a screenshot as an example. Thanks!

comment Windows activation with planned reinstall
@jpoh as I recall, you can use this to back up OEM Windows, yes. You can also do the reinstall from OEM media - see activation FAQ for more info.

comment Can my laptop's Hard Disk be cloned and loaded to another laptop?
@DanielRHicks OEMs actually use the same license key on all their machines. Activation is done by checking the BIOS for a cryptographic key that verifies the OEM license used matches the hardware.

"everywhere internally including outside of your LAN" doesn't really make much sense.

Do you have a DNS server internally? What's your network environment like? Is everything connected to a single router? If you have a DNS server it should be trivial to set this up, it's a very common thing to do.
