I lost my key code for my microsoft small business edition 2003 can you provide me with one


Hi,

Fixya.com does not provide with any type of product codes or keys. If you have lost your microsoft office key then i suggest you contact support team of microsoft.com and explain the issue to them. They should be able to give you the key if you provide them with a serial no. mentioned at the backside of the office 2003 box.

Hope that helps!

    Microsoft office basic edition 2003


    Try using the Office 2003 removal tool. Just download the Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit at this link. It's called ork.exe:

    http://www.microsoft.com/office/orkarchive/2003ddl.htm

    After it's installed followed these directions:

    To locate the tool, click the Start button, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, point to Microsoft Office Resource Kit, and then click Removal Wizard.

    Then follow the on screen instructions that will walk you through the removal. After Office is completely removed, restart and try to reinstall.

    Hope this helps!

    I bought the trail virsion of Microsoft office 2003 for my business. We closed the business in 2005 then my computer crashed. I do not have the product key to reinstall my software. Please...


    Usually when you purchase a software online the license key is being sent to the email. If you don't have it on your email you may want to call the software vendor.. in this case Microsoft.

    Hi. 25 character product key for microsoft office home and student edition.............I need it?


    There is a software called Belarc which is free and will tell you all the product keys of the software that you have installed on your system. I'm not sure if Office 2003 is upgradable to 2007. Seems like it should be with possibly a "small fee" from MicroSoft. Call them if you get the key, if not there are other ways that they can tell when you bought it.
    You are talking about legal versions right????

    I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.

    Try contacting Microsoft and see if they can retrieve your key. If not look into openoffice HTTP://www.openoffice.org a free microsoft office type program, and, much better IMHO.
