Trying to install Office in a new computer, old one was stollen.

In had Office installed and working perfectly in my computer but it was stollen. I have a new one now and have reinstalled Office and when I did the updates it said that my product key is not valid. I have an original copy of Office and I don't understand why it doesn't work. Has it got to do with the fact that my stollen computer has Office installed in it? Is there anything I can do?

Microsoft limits the number of installation, you get the back your product key by sending the bar code and your original product key to microsoft, they will verify it and send a valid product key.

Who likes the new office 2007 design?

Well, not me. I pretty much hate the thing. I know that their intentions were good, but they messed up a very good tool that I enjoyed using.

I was trying to figure out a way to bypass this, as I purchased a new laptop which had an office 2007. I did not have my old office 2003 installation CD and of course I didn't want to do something illegal.

That is when I came across the following site, which made my day:

There is a short and very friendly explanation to how the program works, and then you can install it in your computer. Enjoy!!

Im putting a new hard drive in do i need to install a cd to do it i dont have the originals that came with mine they were stollen, if so where can i get them

Your post is in PC Desktops, it's a Laptop? It's a Dell Vostro 3400? Is the old HDD working? If you install a new primary HDD you will need a Factory System disk to re-install to factory specs OR a Windows Installation Disk. Contact Dell Support with your Make, Model, Serial Number of Computer, if the Factory Recovery Disk is available. Dell Support: You may can use a online service? If your old drive works you can "clone" it to the new HDD, using a software program.

Took the computer to best buy to fix CD drive - came back with office not working - have reinstalled 3 times but it keeps saying it is not installed. what do we do?

First, you may want to take it back to bestbuy .. no .. wait! .. never mind that.

You may be trying to use an "old" shortcut icon. Before you install again, click on [Start] [All Programs] [Microsoft Office] [Word] to determine if it works. If it does, then remove the old shortcut icons and create new ones by "dragging" each MS program from the selection menu to the desktop.
If that doesn't work then:
  1. UNINSTALL Microsoft Office through the Control Panel
  2. Reboot
  3. Remove all MS Office application shortcuts from your desktop, if any.
  4. INSTALL MS Office
  5. Reboot
Does it work now? Please comment for confirmation.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Can not install old version of paper port on 64 bit system

I am assuming you are using one of the newer version of windows, although you don't mention this. There is a free version of paperport you can download over the internet so you might like to try this. With windows you can install 32 bit versions of software onto 64 bit system and they will generally work fine. You should also try using "compatibility" mode which windows uses to help manage programs designed for older version of windows. I have some older software that wont work on anything other than windows XP so I have installed a virtual machine onto my 64 bit computer, then installed windows xp onto the virtual machine, and then installed the software I need to use. This is a bit tedious and time consuming but works perfectly and allows me to use my older software.

Cant install software

Yes, Office Home and Student 2007 is compatible with your laptop. One question: are you trying to enter your activation product key into the installed version of Office 2007 trial that is on the laptop? It will not work, if you are.

You need to contact Microsoft, and they will help you with your problem. If I were you, I would start HERE.
