Re: removing microsoft works 2000

This is easy, just press start, control panel and add/remove software, then add repair/remove where it says Microsoft Works 2000 or something like that

Sometimes you will get an install error if you already have another version of Microsoft Office installed.

If you have another version of Microsoft Office already installed on your computer you will want to remove it first.

You will also want to make sure you run setup with admin rights. If you aren't sure how to do this it may be best to get a tech savvy friend to help.

This is done by going to the control panel> Add/Remove programs

Failing that make sure your dvd is clean and not heavily scratched. If you clean it (use a microfiber cloth not a paper towel) and it is still not working you might try one of the dvd fixing devices that sand off the first few layers. something like

SkipDr Manual for DVD CD Disc Repair Cleaning System is likely your best option.

If you still can't get things to work give us a buzz, we are Microsoft Partners and can hook you up with a trial version of Microsoft Office 365. This includes 24x7 tech support provided by Microsoft themselves.

How do you know the product key used for this program?

most likely you have Office Mac 2008 home and student edition. You have 3 product keys provided with the install DVD. You will only know if the product key is already used when you use Office Mac in 2 Mac computers(used the same Product key) Error message will pop up saying that Microsoft Office is already in used. When you accidentally used same product key on both computers, the workaround for that is to remove the product key and use the product key that you think you haven't used yet.
To remove the product key:

] > Finder\~\Applications\Microsoft Office 2008\Office

* Remove OfficePID.plist

] > Finder\<username>\Library\Preferences\Microsoft\Office 2008

* Remove Microsoft Office 2008 Settings.plist

After removing the 2 files try launching an Office Application then it will prompt you to Improvement program. Just click continue then it will prompt you to enter the Product Key.

I tried moving my word application to my desktop and now when I go to open it a error comes up that says that there was a problem opening word and it tells me to reinstall the program. I put in my office...

That's actually a normal problem. You don't need to reinstall Office Mac 2008. What you need to do is to put the the Microsoft Word icon from your Desktop back to Applications Folder. To create a shortcut on your Desktop, go to Applications folder, Right Click(Ctrl+Click) on Microsoft Word then choose Make Alias. Just drag the Microsoft Word Alias to your Desktop. From Desktop you will have Word as a shorcut icon without any problem. If the issue will not be resolved then you need to uninstall then reinstall Office. Here's the steps:

] > Macintosh HD\Applications
* Remove Microsoft Office 2008
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Application Support\Microsoft
* remove folder called Microsoft
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Caches
* remove all Microsoft related files
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library
* remove Microsoft Folder
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Preferences
* remove all the ([....].plist files)
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Preferences
* remove Microsoft folder
] > Macintosh HD\Library\Receipts\Remove all Office 2008.pkg files
] > Delete Microsoft Office shortcuts from Dock
] > Restart
] > Install Office 2008
> Manual Install Updates

I hope this Helps! :)

I need to install microsoft word but it is already in my comp but

You need to first uninstall the program (ms office)[if it's ms office 2003, as soon as you start installing the new ms-office 2007, it'll automatically upgrade to ms-office 2007].
I don't know whether you know how to uninstall programs or not, but let me give you the hints..
Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Programs" [add/remove programs on windows xp] now highlight the "Microsoft Office..." and click "Uninstall" button and follow the onscreen instructions. Restart your computer and again install the Microsoft Office 2007 using the set up file. If in case, you can't uninstall the program due to faulty/error/missing files, download this program ccleaner install it and run. Now click "Tools" and from the uninstall lists select/highlight the "microsoft office..." and cick "uninstall". If you still have the same problem, please let me know.

Good luck

Thanks for using FixYa.

Microsoft office 2007 home and student edition trial expired without using

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.
