It is clearer here:
The Home Use Program is a Software Assurance benefit available to Microsoft volume licensing customers with active Software Assurance coverage on their Office applications. Employees who use the covered licenses at work are eligible to purchase these Office applications for use on a personal device during the term of their employment.

Eligible employees are allowed to purchase a single license of each product available according to the terms of their organization’s Software Assurance benefit.

If you are not sure if your organization is eligible, contact your Software Assurance benefits administrator.

I know right. It's worth checking by providing your work email id. It's more reliable as comes direct from Microsoft Itself.

There is also an option for Mac users so I guess it's bit of both.

I hope it helps someone looking for new or upgrade office.
how do you get the code ?

Brilliant and useful scheme. Saves the O365 license if you don't need it too

How to get the program code?
-> Just search on the intranet of your company "Microsoft HUP" for getting the code or ask directly the helpdesk or someone relevant on IT Infrastructure department. It should work in most of the companies where HUP works.

TFL is another one who participate, just in case.

My old Hospital trust had, but where I work now do. Another good reason to have moved!
About the e-bay codes, I have bought 3 licenses. 2 expired within 3 months and the 3 Rd I still use it after 2 years

Yes

To have the rights for employees to use HUP you need to have the higher cost software assurance contracts with Microsoft. Many companies may instead have the "normal" licences so HUP may not be available.

Technically you should delete the software if you leave the company but I suspect no one will.

Same here. On the old system we ordered the program through the IT department and Microsoft sent the Office disc directly to your home address. I asked about it again last year to be told that we were no longer involved with the scheme (but we could get free Kapersky AV protection for free - errrr no thanks!).

I have had it running on a couple of my laptops and a computer before with no issues. I imagine they would take a dim view if it was abused however and that would impact everyone. (Just have to add that for the unscrupulous on here).

Will this install onto windows xp?

They don't, I assure you
This really isn't a deal, this has been around for years. My company claim they are not eligible but I suspect that a lot of companies don't want to get involved policing their license agreements in the home, how do they ensure staff delete the software when they leave etc.

But why would they care ?
Not sure why this is a "deal". The HUP is always this price for eligible employees.

Haha I'm aware. My response was to someone saying most trust's are eligible. In reality it's about 5 trusts.

You should not be using xp, it’s no longer supported by microsoft, your computer is therefore vulnerable
Look on ebay for the codes it's normally around £5-£6. Brought 3 off them over the last year and are working with no issues. They are recovered from broken laptops so 100 legit.

Thats very unlikely.

Look at it this way, if your computer broke, and you bought a new PC would you then go and buy another copy of Office at £200+ rather than re-use the code you already owned.

Most of the cheap codes sold on Ebay will be stolen Volume Keys, or MSDN keys, they will stop working after a time.

There are many free variants of Open Office, if you need an office type product use of those, rather than give your money away for a code that will stop working after a time.
So you know where I can get windows 7 relatively cheap

So you know where I can get windows 7 relatively cheap



The only way now to get Windows 10 will be very old stock, or buying a Windows10 or Windows 8 PRO (not Home) kit and using the downgrade rights. It will cost about £100 or so for a Win10 Licence but at least that means if you want to go to Windows 10 later on that PC you can with no further cost.

There will be people selling "reclaimed" licences just as they do for Office, they will work (you may have to go through phone activations) but they are not legit and never will be. The OEM licence for Windows dies when the PC dies in the eyes of the law.

It may be cheaper to buy a used wiped/ rebuilt old ex corporate Windows 7 box, they got for a few tens of pounds.

However Windows 7 has 2 years life before it stops getting security fixes, so at some point people will have to use the new interface in wither Windows 8 or Windows 10.
