I'm thinking about buying Office 365 (aka. 2013) for my own PCs (2), and I could give one copy to the PC here that belongs to a company. The PC also got an Office 2007 (legal), but I'm no legal expert.

I looked at the FAQ/site, but it mentions no such thing.
So. Can I install it on a PC that belongs to a business?
The machines are located at the same place, it's a family business.

  • If I'm getting you right you mean you want share one copy on 2 pc's? – avirk Dec 31 '13 at 10:11
  • @avirk: You get 5 copies of Word/Excel, etc. I want to install 2 on my own personal computers, and ONE copy on a business PC. – Apache Dec 31 '13 at 10:12

From MS Office FAQ you can't use it for business purpose.

  • Could you copy out the relevant part? (or include a picture of it.) – Apache Dec 31 '13 at 10:20
  • @Shiki as you said, done! – avirk Dec 31 '13 at 10:25
  • @Shiki hope you would not mind to mark it accepted in that case? :) – avirk Dec 31 '13 at 10:38
  • 5 years later this information doesn't seem correct any more. The page this answer links to seems to no longer contain any information about restriction of where the applications can be used. Other sources states that the licenses no longer contain any such restrictions. – Lii Nov 15 '18 at 13:16
