    "The Window Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running in safe mode or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed.

You may have to type it in your browser manually.

Ok got you fixed up. Yes you need Windows Installer to download anything from the windows website.It's just a small program that can be downloaded..here is the website that talks about it and how to download. You will be downloading the 32-bit version. About half way down it shows how to download it..good luck and please rate this solution. If you have any questions let me know.

I download MS Office 2007 from Internet, However I don't have Product Key for this Product X12-30196. So I am getting error.


You can only use it as a trial version. It'll work until 60 days or a maximum of 120 usages, what ever comes first. You need to purchase a product key from Microsoft. Alternatively, you can try to download a free alternative called Open Office:

Here is the site: http://download.openoffice.org/
It does not look as good as Microsoft Office but it serves the purpose. The best thing about this software aside from being free is that it supports files created from Microsoft Office like word, excel and powerpoint.
You just need to get used to a different naming convention.

SOFTWARE MICROSOFT 2007 DOWNLOAD


MS Office 2007 is available here:
http://www.nextag.com/MS-office/shop-html?nxtg=3a570a1c0591-970B8697213DFCAC

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

I couldn't download ms office 2007 from any search engine and my standard program files got deleted yesterday so what i have to do to olve the problem to get them back..please correct if i am wrong..


downloading microsoft word 2007 from a search engine is a TERRIBLE idea. this just screams "virus, pleas attack my computer. thank you." if you don't have the disc, your best bet may be restoring your windows to factory image and you iwll have a 30 day trial of word on there. from there you can either purchase a new key or try to find the cd.

I recently purchased a desk top, it allready has a free trial for microscoft office, however I cannot adequetly access it because it required a Product Key (25 chartacters) how do i obtain this


A product key is a unique combination of 25 numbers and letters. The product key is used during Microsoft software installation to "unlock" or to open the product. If you do not enter the product key when you are prompted during the installation, the product may not open until you enter the product key. The product key is typically located on an orange or yellow sticker on the back of the CD case or the DVD case.

To obtain a new product key for your Office program, contact Microsoft and speak to a customer service representative. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

I have windows vista and I'm trying to open a job description on the nhs website and i keep getting a page that says "Windows has the following information about this file type. This page will help...


Are you sure you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer? You need to install Microsoft Office first if you don't have one. You need to purchase an MS Office CD.
