Vista Recently I purchased an HP laptop with vista but the office 2007trial version was installed in it instead of full version. Now after entering the key for initiation of office 2007, it shows that the software will expire after 60 days. My queries are :- 1. Do i need to purchase this software or the HP dealer should provide it to me free of cost. 2. Can office 2002 work instead of office 2007 in vista.

1. Yes, you need to buy a licence key from Microsoft

2. If you uninstall 2007, you can then install 2002. You might have problems with some apps like Outlook.

If you need to purchase the 2007 version and just enter the registration key on the CD case, you will not have to do anything with the CD itself.
  
Ask HP "If I buy this computer does Office 2007 come with a trial version, or full version?" Then you have a salesman's word on the subject. If he says it does not, then you can ask for confirmation with a supervisor. However if it actually is supposed to be the full version then you have a valid complaint.

I believe you CAN use your old Office 2002 (call MS and or HP to confirm) but you will have to uninstall the 2007 version first.

I just bought this brand spankin' new laptop and it has Vista on it... then the MS Office Home/Student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key... I tried the one on the laptop.


Hi there!
You should ask your laptop retailer if the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 that is installed in your computer is a full version or just a trial version. Normally, if that is a full version, it should come with an installation disc and the product key should be on the package where the disc is inserted.
Hope this helps.

I just purchased a new HP Laptop with VISTA MS-Office


check the shop that you bought if they have the product key, because when you purchase a laptop, it has to be licensed. To bypass the key is to look for valid product keys from the internet

try searching the key in this site,.
www.newcracks.net.

pm me if your problem is solved or not. i will provide another option. Thank you.

The office on your computer is likely a trial version. You will get the keycode once you purchase the software.

Worg kay for Windows Vista


Are you referring to Vista or Office? At the back of the laptop is the product key for Vista. For Office, the product key can be obtained together with the disk of the full version of Office. If it is Office which is asking for the product key and you do not have the disk for it, you need to purchase the retail version of Office or have the key directly from Microsoft (1-800-936-5700). Or if you are really referring to Vista and entered the product key at the back of the laptop and it is not valid, please call Microsoft still. Hope this helps. Thank you

PRODUCT KEY 25 CHARACTER 2007 HELP


Unfortunately, these are trial versions that come pre-installed with Windows. You do not have the software because the full version was not included in your purchase.
Good news, though. The 2007 Student & Teacher (academic) version, which includes Excel, Powerpoint, and Word, is only $79 at newegg.com and it has free shipping.

Cont'd-microsoft 2007.... can this be uninstalled and a fresh one installed??


More than likely unless you paid an additional fee at the time of purchase to have Microsoft Office then it is a trial version which is installed on your laptop. It may ,if it hasn't already, allow to use it 10-20 times before you can no longer use it fully (I say fully because it will allow you to view files but not alter them if you do not input the product key)

And yes you can let the trial expire and later purchase the full version. It would be easiest to purchase the product key direct from microsoft that way all you have to do is input the key when it asks for it...once you enter the product key you will have full access. This is because the full version is already installed on your computer..just waiting for you to input the product key.

P.S. there are other options such as open source software i.e. openoffice.org

Please rate my response..and...Good Luck!!!!
