Finding My Microsoft Office 2011 Product Key Mac

12/26/2021

So, you have a new Mac with OSX and you’re excited to use it. But, you don’t have Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 installed on the new computer. You can find the installation disk, but how do you move the license? Believe it or not, it is actually possible to transfer Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac’s license from one machine to another – and it’s just a matter of copying a few files. So far this process has worked on every computer I have tested it on, please let me know (in the comments) if this works for you too. I’ll take you through the dead simple step-by-step process of how to do this.

Finding My Microsoft Office 2011 Product Key Mac

How to find product key for my Office 2011 for Mac Split from this thread. I have MS Office 2011 on my old MacBook Pro and have transferred it to my new MacBook Pro but can't use it until I get the Product Key which I have misplaced. Microsoft HUP product keys. Office 2010 product keys. Office 2007 product keys. Office for Mac 2011 product keys. My product key isn't working. First, make sure that you're entering the key correctly on the right site. If you aren't sure which site to use, you can enter your product key using the Virtual support agent (English only).

Briefly: With this process, you’ll be able to effectively transfer a valid, activated license from one OS X computer to another.
Update: It appears as though .lockfiles mentioned are purely optional. If you don’t have one (as shown in the photo below), there is no need to worry. This process works the same.
Update: Also, some of these folders are hidden, to shown them in finder on MacOS Sierra and above, use the key combination of CMD + SHIFT + .

I should note too, these files and folders are named in very similar ways. It’s easy to get tripped up. Take this process slow, move through each file one at a time, not missing anything.
