Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office. If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program, it s likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.
The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows XP (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office. Please review the following: How to determine whether you have a trial edition of a 2007 Office suite or program installed: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927920/en-us
THe key should be on the back of the CD envelope or jewel case you got in the package. If you purchased and downloaded the product online, you should have received a confirmation email which contains your product key.
It depends which trial version was downloaded. You can't reinstall the same trial download but they do have other trial downloads.
There is a student 2007, small business 2007, professional 2007 etc. versions. You can download each one of these if you have not already used these trial versions. They all offer the basics...Word, Excell, Powerpoint, Outlook with added software depending on what version you download.
If you entered a trial key, the key expired. The product key is issued by Microsoft office and is part of the license for the product. If you are looking for a keygen or key crack, they are available on the Internet, but I can't help you as it is not a legal solution. Purchasing the product is the best way to assure that it will be a legal copy and that you will be entitled to updates and technical support. If you are a student, you can purchase a student version which will function the same as the non-student version, cost you less, and give you an opportunity to learn the program.
If the version that came on your computer was a trial, you will need to purchase the product to get a new, permanent key - or you could probably uninstall and try to see if you can do a trial on one of the other versions - that could get you another 60 days. If you need the links, I can get them for you, but they are easy to locate on the MS site...
If it was a permanent version, your hardware vendor should solve the issue, as they are contractually liable for this type of support. Thanks for rating FixYa!
