Default 03 Office Pro Install Problems

I purchased this software for an HP laptop and not part of the laptop
purchase. 6 months later I had to take the system back because of a recall
and they gave me a new laptop. I tried installing the Office Pro 2003 on my
new laptop and it tells me the product key is incorrect. Any ideas?

You uninstalled any trial edition first?
The Key is on the orange sticker on the case, you checked the numerals
carefully, eg 0 O, B 8 etc
Its not an OEM edition is it?

Yep did all that. I was wondering if maybe I am only allowed to install it 1
time and since I installed it on my old computer it was illegal to install it
on my new. Yes I removed the trial version

If its a retail edition from MS you can install it as many times as you like
as long as its only installed on the number of working PC's allowed
How is it described on the CD or its case?
