MS Works license/use

I was recently going through old programs I've acquired and I came across an unopened, not for retail sales (never installed) copy of MS Works 8.5. I have two older machines (95 & ME) which should run it (It probably came with one of those). My question is, since I have no clue which computer it came with (if it even came with one I still have), can I install it on any machine (it would seem to me I can) or is there something I'm unaware of?
Thanks for any info

It should work on any machine, you bought it fair and square when you bought those machines. I do not believe it is under the same license limitation as OEM windows that came with the machine.
