Hmmm, stupid caps-lock.

Anyway, I was cleaning out my desk and found 4 of these:

The text on the front says:

"Use of this software requires a license, sold separately. resale to unlicensed customers may indicate illegal distribution."

So...this is what, a multi-license version of this software? Am I obliged to throw it in the trash or can I sell it to a coworker who would then activate it? (Don't ask me why he wants Office 97).
It's all sealed, never been opened or installed, don't even know when or if I bought it at some point.

Any info would be much appreciated.

that would be a corporate version that requires a separate lisence/cdkey. without a lisence it is pretty much a coaster. unless someone has a lisence they aren't going to want it. Also don't try to sell it on ebay MS will see it and have it cancelled within hours.
