Other weird Office stuff
Authored by: Anonymous on Dec 17, '01 02:23:15AM

This isn't entirely related, but interesting none the less. I have 2 computers networked with appletalk. While using excel on one computer, my brother opened excel on the other. He was given the message that the licence was already in use by me, and the program quit. Word didn't seem to be affected in the same way however.

Same here - I have two networked machines, and I get this happening with Word X.

Office checks to see if anyone on the same subnet as you is running the same serial number for office. To find out more (hint hint) go here: MacNN Forum Discussion
