Re: how do i reteive my product key for 2007
The following steps involve modification of registry key values, which may
corrupt your Windows if done incorrectly. Backup registry first before
performing the workaround.
Close all Microsoft Office programs.
Click on Start button, then click on Run.
Type “regedit” (without quotes) in the
Run text box, and click OK or press Enter.
Locate and then click the following subkey:
Inside, you will find another subkey that resembles the following subkey:
Optional: Backup this registry branch by exporting the Registration subkey
to a file, just in case the new product key does not work and you have to

to enter a new 25-character product key.
Type in the valid and genuine product key, and then click OK.
