  1. I managed to transfer my license to a new laptop due to advice online from other users. microsoft did not offer any solutions. I spent 4 hours on the phone with them. After speaking to 6 people finally someone asked a somewhat relevant question: was I a personal or business user. But actually that turned out to be not relevant at all. Another support person told me I needed to submit a support request, with my credit card, which would potentially cost me $259. When I asked why I need to be charged, she was not able to explain to me in a reasonable way. Everyone I spoke to sounded like they really didn’t know what they were doing and just passing the buck. Then after being forwarded to even more people, all asking me the same questions (my name, email, phone number), but nothing relevant to my problem, I discovered a small point online – I could not install the software if I was connected to the Internet. I disconnected, and amazing, it installed! no thanks to microsoft.
