Remove an Office Professional Plus 2019, and use the Key in another computer

Tiago Mariano 6 Reputation points

I Have an MCT account, and I used one Office Professional Plus 2019 Key in one VM for tests. after I removed the office from this VM.
However, I cant use the same key on another computer, and it says it was used before.
How can I use the same key, or can I delete that key from the old computer and use it in the new one?

    According to your description, it seems that you did not use a MAK key to activate volume licensed version of Office 2019.

    But do you bound the key you used with a Microsoft account?
    Generally, for retailed versions of Office 2019, if you want to transfer the Office to a new machine, please uninstall the Office 2019 from previous machine first, then you may sign your associated Micosoft account into My Account (Services & subscriptions page) on the new machine and click Install.

    After you finish installing, if you still be asked to activate Office, it's recommended to activate Office over the phone.

    Any questions, please feel free to post back.
