How to Activate the Transferred Version of MS Office
As usual, we need to move MS office to the new computer, then deactivate the office on the old computer (maybe you have to uninstall), activate MS office again on the new computer with the key. But if you have the FPP version license, you could make a copy of Office 2010/2013 to another computer without the key. FPP, OEM, MLK are the three most common types of licenses for MS Office. FPP or Full Packaged Product covers the boxed, retail version; only FPP licenses can be transferred.
