I did as indicated above, but it seems to assume that you have the installation media for Office for Mac , which my client can not locate.
How to retrieve Office product key from old machine? - Ars Technica OpenForum
Is there a location online that you can get the installer from? There isn't a legal place to retrieve the installer. There isn't a tool to retrieve the Key for the Mac. The instructions Emmanuel gave will allow you to transfer the license to another Mac. You also need to copy the Microsoft programs from the Applications folder. That's the only legal, viable solution right now. One thing you can also try is to just run Migration Assistant and have OS X copy all the system files over. That should move everything over correctly. Find out now! Thanks for the reply.
I did copy the applications folder over, per the earlier instructions along with the other files which I assumed included the license.

When I run Word, I just get the option to either enter a product key or purchase a product key. The client has been using this new Mac for a bit already so I'm assuming I can't confine the migration assistant to moving Office only, is that correct? No, Migration Assistant won't be able to copy just the Office files over, but you can copy just the Applications and the System files without copying over any User Data. If Office is already on the new system, you really only need to copy the 3 license files from the old system to the new one.
If it doesn't, then it's possible that Microsoft patched Office and broke that. Newer Office for Mac needs the original Product Key. The license files generated are tied to the system ID, so when you move it, you need to enter a new key to generate a new license file. Are you sure the user has Office ?

Office has the rounded letter Icons for the Applications. The newer Office has solid boxes with the letters in it that look sort of like a notebook opening. Yeah, definitely , and I definitely have the files you mention in the right place. I think his only remedy at this point is to purchase the newest version. Too bad - on the PC side I've always had great luck with ProduKey to easily retrieve product keys, but haven't found a tool on the Mac side that gets me the Office key.
There hasn't been a need for one of those until recently. There must have been some patch for Office that triggers that now. I remember just copying those files before and it worked. I don't have the old one anymore. Hard to say, there were no errors. Anyways I had my serial handy so I'll be telling the help desk guys that they need to locate the key before cloning a user's system.

Tried copying over plist file as matyas. I hope we can find the serial. It's definitely that file. Make sure you get it into the correct library folder.

If I read the previous post correctly, copy the entire file Lastly make sure the permissions on the file are consistent with the rest of the folder. I had my hard drive replaced. I used SuperDuper to clone then on the new disk I get asked to register the product key.

I tried calling Microsoft. I tried copying plists from the Time Machine backup I also made. I have the old hard drive and clone in storage, so if there is a way to look up the key given the working install I'd like that.
