Microsoft Office licenses
I'm trying to get clear in my head how Microsoft Office licenses work if they're not on an EES and are operating on a machine-by-machine basis.
We have recently bought four new machines to replace existing machines which had Office 2003 on. We want Office 2010 on the new machines (we're not going to 2013 yet, as we're only just trying to standardise to 2010!).
The product keys for 2003 are not valid to use with Office 2010 are they?
However, if we're quoted for and buy Office 2013, can we use those product keys with Office 2010?
In other words - are Microsoft Office licenses backwardly compatible with previous versions of Office but not vice versa?
