Microsoft XP Small Business



MICROSOFT OFFICE XP SMALL BUSINESS

You are bidding on authentic Microsoft software. It is not a fake. It has never been used or opened. It is factory-sealed. It includes a Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity and it's own Authentic Product Key. This is not an upgrade. It is full-verision Microsoft Office XP Small Buisness.

• AUTHENTIC MICROSOFT SOFTWARE
• FACTORY-SEALED
• CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
• AUTHENTIC PRODUCT KEY
• FULL VERSION SOFTWARE

Small Business Edition includes:
• Word 2002
• Excel 2002
• Outlook 2002
• Publisher 2002
• 2 Microsoft Holographic Office XP Small Business CDs
• Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity Label
• Microsoft EULA (End-User License Agreement)

This is a complete software package. No copies of it are being used on any other computer.

This is the OEM version
Note on "OEM": OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. What this means is that it was originally bundled with hardware. It is absolutely the same as the retail version. So don't be discouraged to bid and be confident that you are not getting some lower class software!

BTW, I also have Money 2002 Standard (1CD) with the Tracking ID #. Money 2002 also has not been opened, used on another computer, or anything of that sort. Its also a brand new OEM product

Make offers w/ PM or e-mail!
Thanks
Phil

OEM

sorry, but from my understanding, they are NOT.
the major restriction on "OEM software" is that it's non-transferable and non-upgradeable. which generally means, when the system gets retired, so does the software it came with.

Also, if the license was already registered with microsoft, you will need to contact Microsoft and explain that you HD died and your re-installing the app. or else it will prompt you that the license is already registered and to contact MS.

however, the Retail version a.k.a. (Full-Packaged Product (FPP) can be transferred, and support is also included.

actually, you can install it on any system, but legally, it can only be installed on the system it was purchased with (when it was pre-loaded) from the PC builder (Dell, IBM, etc...)

The guy's name is Bill Gates. Let's not doubt his opinion on software licences LOL.
