Can Microsoft Office 2013 Student be installed on multiple PCs simultaneously?

I'm looking at it on Amazon and it's a bit confusing... at one point it says it can only be on one machine at a time, and then there's an update that says 5 machines... specifically, "The Office 365 Subscription products work on up to 5 PCs, Macs, and select mobile devices without license transferability limitations."

Bump. I need to know if the "Office 365 Subscription" is the thing I get buying "Office Home & Student 2013" and can use on 5 different PCs, or if it's a separate product.

No. Home and Student 2013 only grants one license.

Edit: Office 365 is good on up to five PC's or Macs and is $100/yr.

Office home and student is different to 365. 365 is a subscription based service where you have to pay wvery year as soon as you stop paying you cant use it anymore but you always get the latest version. Office home and student is a one time purchase (will cost more than 1 year of 365) and you keep for ever but does not up date with new features. You can install on multiple pc's at a time but you have a limit of how many ( if you reach your limit you can uninstall on 1 and install on another.

No, you technically can't (according to the license agreement).

I have office home and student and have installed on both my pc and laptop without problem so i am pretty sure you can install on multiple pc's at a time (there is a number limit though).

Are you talking about Office Home & Student 2013? Have you seen the license agreement for it? Hell, when it first came out, you weren't even technically allowed to switch the activation to a different PC after it's first install and activation.

I like Office 365. It works for me and my needs. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely the better choice for some.

If you're a student you should be getting Office 365 University.
