Customers can buy a PKC for any of the three consumers or small-business Microsoft Office 2010 Suite he/she wants and unlock and activate the respective suite out of the preloaded single image. PKC does not include installation media and is licensed only for one suite in that specific PC it was sold for. These are designed for purchase with a PC preloaded with Microsoft Office 2010.
