97 for 79

We celebrated my dad's 79th birthday Sunday.
Recently, his computer began acting flaky and my brother found him a new laptop to use.
We just needed to find Microsoft Office for him to finish the transition.
Do we buy a new license when he's used Office for years?
No, but how do we get the old applications moved over?
Fortunately, he saves stuff. Like the Office 97 CD and brick of a manual from back in the 20th century.
And it loaded fine.
Thus, three days before 2015, I loaded Office 97 on a computer.
UPDATE: I thought Dustbury might like the story. I was right.
