Hi,

I recently upgrade my Mac and I wanted to transfer Office 2011 from my old Mac to my new Mac. I have tried both Time Machine and Migration Assistant but I have been unsuccessful. I have even tried completely removing Office from my old Mac while restoring my new Mac to a Time Machine backup of my old mac, and even that didn't work. I believe there is something about Office that is still tied to my old Mac. I have restored both my old and new Mac to the exact same Time Machine backup and when I ran Office on the new Mac I was prompted to enter an activation key, but when I run Office on my old Mac it works with no problem. Attached is a screenshot of the message I got on my old Mac right after the restore when it was not connected to the internet. I then connected the machine to the internet, hit Retry, and Office works fine just like before. Is it possible, and how could I move Office 2011 from my old Mac to the new Mac because I don't intend to use the old Mac anymore. Thanks

Do you still have the installer DVD? or the installer download DMG? Use them.
