Keep getting asked for product key when going into my documents


This would seem to be a simple matter of whether the Microsoft Office software on your relative's ex-computer was already installed on it when ownership transferred to you and, if so, if it's a genuine licensed copy of the software that was installed.

If you believe the installed application is actually licensed, then all you need to do is to activate it by going to the Microsoft website and, under Support and Activation, allow the site to scan your computer to verify the validity of the license. If the software proves to be licensed it will automatically be validated and the usage and Automatic Updates restrictions lifted.

If the software turns out to be unlicensed, you will have the opportunity to pay for and download an activation code from the website which will automatically validate and legitimize the installed Office software and automatically removing the usage limitations and Automatic Updates restrictions you are currently experiencing.

The Product ID is a Microsoft generated code that links genuine Microsoft software with a genuine Microsoft license that permits the user to install and use the software with the authority of the copyright holder. Without a valid Product ID, the software is illegal and installing it and using it qualifies as software pricy and copyright theft which, in certain circumstances, can become a civil legal issue or even a law enforcement matter. Please note that, not being aware of the Law does not usually qualify as a Defense in legal matters.

If your copy of Microsoft Office is unlicensed, then what you are seeing are the first signs of usage restrictions and limitations that can ultimately end up in the application locking you out completely and therefore becoming totally unusable. As things stand you are probably already unable to benefit from Microsoft automatic updates, enhancements and security patches for Microsoft Office.

I would advise you to use only a genuine licensed version of Microsoft Office or you will almost certainly have authorization problems such as the ones you are starting to experience, which defeat the object of installing the software in the first place.


Alternatively, you can buy a heavily discounted, genuine licensed version of Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Plus Edition starting from about $85 (plus shipping and packing) or Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus Edition for about $78 (plus shipping and packing) from similar websites, geographically local to you, as:

The only legal downloads of Microsoft products are available only from Micrsosoft and Microsoft do not offer downloads of old products like Microsoft Office 2007 or Office 2003. The only Microsoft Office product you can download is the trial version of whatever latest version of Microsoft Office that is available. Currently you can only download Microsoft Office 2010 trial. Trial versions of Microsoft Office are free to download but can only be used for the limited trial period of usually 60 days . After the trial period expires, in order to continue using the software, the user has to upgrade to the full version and pay Microsoft for an online activation code which unlocks the trial version's time limitation and allows indefinite use from then onwards.



If this type of software is important for you but don't want to or can't afford to pay the retail price of Microsoft Office, then you could use completely free Office software like OpenOffice, which is very similar to Microsoft Office and can even be used to open edit and manage most Microsoft Office spreadsheets, databases and documents. You don't have to pay anything at all to download install and use OpenOffice, because it is an Open Source software application.


The website for Microsoft Office trial and activation code downloads is: www.microsoft.com


The website for OpenOffice is: www.openoffice.org

This computer use to have windowsxp it was upgrade to windows vista but do not have a product key can i install the windowxp the key no#for windows xp is in the back of the computer or how to buy a key no.


You have to enter a new Vista product id to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista. The Windows XP product id will not work for Windows Vista. If you bought the Vista from an authorized retailer of Microsoft products then the serial number would be on the back of the software pack.
If you want to you can buy an activation code from Microsoft. Having an activation code means you don't need a product id and that your right to use the software is recognized by Microsoft.
I am not sure if you also have a problem with Microsoft Office because your question says "problem with Microsoft Office Professional 2007...". If you do then the same thing applies. an activation code is even stronger than a product id for both Windows and Office because a product id only gives you permission to install and use the software offline for a short time and it still needs to be activated by Microsoft before you can use it fully or longer. An activation code allows you to use the software without any limitations online or offline and also to get updates and upgrades for them from Microsoft.
If you cannot afford genuine Office software or a Microsoft Office activation code then you can download free software called Open Office which is almost as good as Microsoft Office and can even be used to open and edit Microsoft Office documents.
It is always better to have the genuine activated version.

Here are the sites you need:

www.openoffice.org

Hi kasibual

MS OFFICE POWERPOINT HOME AND STUDENT 2007 ACADEMIC LICENSE

You do not say where you obtained your MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version. If this program originally came from a Microsoft Authorized or other legitimate source with the original installation disc and Product ID and was, when new, an unused, unregistered, unactivated, genuine version but you have either mislaid or damaged the original disc, then you could beg, borrow or buy any MS Office Home & Student 2007 Academic Version disc with which to re-install the program, using your original Product ID when a code is requested during the installation process. You could borrow a disc from a friend or an educational institution. You could go to a local repair centre with a comprehensive software library. You could buy a replacement disc on eBay.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/installation-and-activation-information-for-2007-microsoft-office-programs-HA010173340.aspx

If you obtained MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version from a third party, you will have difficulty knowing whether it is genuine, unused, unactivated and unregistered.

If you were hoping to be able to download MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, then you should be aware that Product Full, genuine, licensed versions of Microsoft Products cannot usually be downloaded. Microsoft have withdrawn downloads and direct sales of MS Office 2007 applications, the only remaining support services being updates and security patches during Automatic Updates. If there is some obstacle to your installing , here are some constructive, useful, helpful, practical alternative options to consider instead. One option is to download MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial and install it, carefully following each step:

Go to: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try


If you do not want to buy or cannot afford a full, licensed copy of MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version and/or prefer to pursue the downloading option, consider the latest version of genuine, similar free comprehensive Office Suite applications - OpenOffice and LibreOffice- downloadable free, from their original source, at:

www.openoffice.org

http://www.libreoffice.org/

You can use OpenOffice and LibreOffice simultaneously with MS Office 2010 Pro 60-DayTrial. If you delete MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial, well before the 60 day expiry date, and Remove all components of it from Add or Remove Programs (or its equivalent in your Operating System) and Restart before downloading and installing it again, it is usually possible to enter into further 60 Day trial periods. If you are determined to continue using it but there is some insurmountable obstacle to your installing MS Office 2007, then you might have to purchase a full, genuine, unused and licensed copy of the software from a reputable, reliable supplier, such as Amazon:


http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_2_13?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+publisher+2007&sprefix=MS+Publisher+#/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_18?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+powerpoint+2007&sprefix=ms+powerpoint+2007&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ams+powerpoint+2007

Online offers of Free Licences, Product keys or Downloads of MS Office products are probably almost universally either not genuine, illegal, unlicensed or pre-used licence versions, downloadable only from illicit download sites or sites that are masquerading non-existent MS Office products as camouflage for the marketing of other (often unrelated) software, products or services. Even if you do succeed in finding a Product ID or download site that seems to work for MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, you will still have to purchase a separate, genuine, unused Activation Code for the product before you can successfully install it, use it with confidence, register it, activate it and download and benefit from Updates and Security Patches for it from Microsoft.

I hope this helps.

Hi nabacayan
MS Office 2007 is a program that requires a Licence before it can be used. The 25 character Product ID is a unique code that links a genuine, original MS Office CD with its original Licence. During installation, the Product ID is entered in order to be able to continue the installation. Entering the code binds the user to use the software only in accordance with pre-defined terms that appear on-screen during the installation process and that the user is required to tick to confirm agreement with before being able to proceed with the installation. Successfully entering the correct code confirms that the user has the Licence. If the Licence is unique, when the computer goes on line, the Program becomes activated when the Product ID that was entered is checked and validated on Microsoft's Licence Database by cross-referencing it with the computer's unique ID. If the validation process shows the Product ID to have previously been registered in association with a different computer, the validation process then checks how many users the Licence is valid for and which computers' unique IDs have been validated. If the validation process shows that the software is within the agreed number of validations defined in the Licence Agreement, the validation process is completed and the software is activated. Activation of the software entitles a user(s) to install and use the Program on the agreed number of different computers.

Activated software entitles the user to benefit from support and to receive online updates, enhancements, security patches and upgrades from Microsoft. During the first of such downloads after activation, the activation is verified and the computer on which the Activated Program is installed becomes authorised for the Program to be operated on it and for it receive future regular downloads unhindered. Any failure of the Validation, Activation or Authorisation processes can result in Notifications, Error Messages, Usage Limitations or Usage Restrictions. MS Office can be installed without a Licence if a Trial version is either be downloaded and installed or factory pre-installed on a new computer. At the end of the predefined and agreed Trial Period, a unique 25 character Activation Code must be purchased and entered in order for that Program to continue to be used on that computer. Entering the code, followed by Validation and Authorization put the user in the same position as the holder of a fully Authorizeded version of MS Office.

Currently, only 60 Day Trial versions of MS Office 2010 can be downloaded directly from Microsoft. And only full, licensed versions of MS Office 2010 can be purchased direct from Microsoft. Full, genuine original, licensed versions of MS Office 2010 and limited remaining stocks of previous versions of MS Office (the 2000, 2003 and 2007 versions) can be purchased from Authorised Resellers of Microsoft Products. If you buy the physical software in a retail pack from a store or an online trader, you can Register and Authorise the product with Microsoft. In the event that you had considered obtaining that the software by downloading, please note that full, genuine licensed versions of Microsoft Products cannot usually be downloaded without the separate purchase of an Activation Code.

If you want genuine, authorised MS Office 2007, then you will have to purchase full, genuine, unused licensed versions of the software from a reputable, reliable supplier that still stocks it, such as Amazon (www.amazon.com). Online offers of Free Downloads of Microsoft products are probably almost universally either not genuine, illegal, unlicensed or pre-used licence versions, downloadable only from illicit download sites or sites that are masquerading non-existent Microsoft products as camouflage for the marketing of other (often unrelated) software, products or services and any software downloaded from them is likely to have Time or Usage Limitations or Access Restrictions once installed. Even if you do succeed in finding a functional download site for MS Office 2007 AND manage to complete a successful, uncorrupted download, you will still have to purchase a separate, genuine, unused Activation Code for it before you can successfully install it, use it with confidence, register it, activate it and then download and benefit from Updates and Security Patches for it from Microsoft. Another option is to download MS Office 2010 Pro 60 Day Trial and install it, carefully following each step:

Go to:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try


You can also download, install and use a comparable free Program - Open Office (www.openoffice.org). Open Office can be used simultaneously with MS Office Pro 2007 60 Day Trial. If you delete MS Office Pro 2010 60 Day Trial, well before the 60 day expiry date, and Remove all components of it from Add or Remove Programs (or its equivalent in your Operating System) and restart before downloading and re-installing, it is usually possible to enter into further 60 Day trial periods.

Soo microsoft just put a lock on hacked versions of office how do u get past this


You don't. You go out and spend the money. Or you report the bogan who sold you the dodgy copy to Microsoft and possibly get a free copy (but you have to fulfill certain conditions)

I had a "dodgy"/business version install by my tech guy and just recently had to go spend Au$800 on the full version of what I needed. No way to get past it. Just make sure when you install the genuine version you uninstall the fake version, otherwise the blue star will still come up at the bottom.

Microsoft office home and student edition needs product key


Is it the same version of Office 2007. For example there is Office 2007 profressional Office 2007 standard, etc.
Make sure the computer doesn't have two versions of Office on it. If it does then remove the trial of Office.
Maybe it did not install your version and it has a trial.

Goto Microsoft.com/office to get a trial version. No keys are provided for free on fixya.com due to copyright violations.

Reinstall Office to correct the Word problem. Otherwise you may have to download a new version.

That's illegal and will probably not work if already used! Contact Microsoft if you have a genuine copy, otherwise use Open Office as an alternative.
