You should have the product key for Windows. If it came with the computer you are using it might be located at the bottom or the back...it will be a sticker. The problem is if windows is prompting you for a key that means that it is in the 30 day trial period and the key has not been entered yet. If a key is not entered after 30 days the OS will shut down until a authentic key is entered. The fact that you have been able to run the software for 2 years is strange. Where did you get the computer from? The person who installed Windows may have hacked into it and disabled it so it will not shut down and that is not legal. Are you able to do any Windows updates or service pack downloads from Windows? You could contact microsoft and buy a serial number that can be used for the OS. Do you have the original Windows Vista installation DVD or is it a copy?

My micro soft office home 2007 whats me to enter a product key I lost mine . i had it for 2 yrs only


Hi try this.

Converting Microsoft Office 2007 to Full Version:

This requires that Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed without the product key in the first place.

Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed as follows:


1. In Windows Explorer of your pc, browse to the following folder:

C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOFFICE12Office Setup ControllerProof.en


2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select Open With in the right click menu.


3. In the Open With window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file.
[Note: In Windows Vista, if you can't see the Notepad option, simply double click the "Other Programs" to unhide it.]

4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

<feature Id=SetupXmlFiles Cost=1248><optionref Id=AlwaysInstalled/></feature>

5. Change the AlwaysInstalled to NeverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

<optionref Id=NeverInstalled/>


6. Save the Proof.xml file.

[In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.

7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.

Good luck!

Can you give me an updated product key for windows 7 - MS Office Home/Student 2007. These posts are over a year old and these posted do not work. Help please.


I have/had this same problem while using MS Office 2007 in my lap top running an MS Vista system. I have the disc but for some reason the product key that came with it ceased to be recognized by the system. I contacted MS & they sent me a new PK which I entered & it took care of my problem. Now I tried to use either one of the PK's & they were not accepted. Contacted MS Tech Support
who helped me thru the free MSO 2010 download & all is OK. Hope you can achieve the same results

I need to remove the genuine microsoft sottware my system....


Most suites or programs of Microsoft Office 2007 allows user to evaluate the product. The trial version of 2007 Microsoft Office system can be installed by using a 25-character trial product key available from Microsoft while you download the free Office software, and you can use the Microsoft Office 2007 suite or program with full functionality for 60 days.

You may have the Office 2007 CD and are able to install Office 2007 without entering product key. However, Office 2007 will work in reduced functionality mode, where it’s effectively just a viewer for Office documents. Beside, if you forget the trial product key, or don’t wish to register a Windows Live ID to get the trial key, here’s the trick to activate Office 2007, or more correctly, bypass the activation of Office 2007 60 days trial, and making the “trial” word disappear from the Office title at the top and suppress activation and trial expiry prompt.
Note that to use Microsoft Office 2007 beyond 60 days trial period, you need to purchase a valid license for it, available from Amazonir?t=techgadgetrev-20&l=ur2&o=1 or most computer retail store.
To use this hack to crack activation on Office 2007, you need to install Office 2007 without any serial number or product key. If you have installed Office 2007 with a product key or serial number, do the following to clean remove Office 2007 of product key:
  1. Close all Microsoft Office applications.
  2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start -> Run, and then type “regedit” in the Open box and press Enter key.
  3. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration
    Note that inside the registry key, there should be another subkey that resembles the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{90120000-0030-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE
    or
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{91120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE
  4. If there is more than one registry entries or subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, open up each subkey, and then identify the product by the ProductName value data until you locate the subkey for the product which you want to remove the existing product license key. For example:
    Product Name=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
    Product Name=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
  5. Once found the correct registry subkey, delete the following values: DigitalProductID
    ProductID
  6. Close Registry Editor.
Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:
  1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\
  2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select “Open With…” in the right click menu.
  3. In the “Open With” window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file. In Vista, if you can’t see the Notepad option, simply double click the “Other Programs” to unhide it.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines: </Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248′>
    <OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/>
    </Feature>
  5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following: <OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/>
  6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
  7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.
As usual, as it’s a hack, and before you purchase a valid product key for it, you won’t be able to AND can’t access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.
Note: The hack may work for 60 days only. To make this hack fully working, try to delete additional file below, probably has to be deleted every two months:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA\opa12.dat
Or,
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA (for Windows 7 and Vista)

I just bought this brand 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 and it doesnt work


the one that you are trying to enter is the product key for your windows operating system. MS Office Home/Student 2007 edition has a separate product key. what was installed in your system is an MS Office Home/Student 2007 trial version. you need to purchase the product key at microsoft website.

Product key


Dear Vina, Office 2007 is not free.

If somebody gives you a product key, that key had been stolen from somebody that paied for the product.

There are other websites that dedicate to piracy and criminal activities of this kind, sure Fixya is not the right place where to ask for stolen keys.

I am sure you will understand.

Goodbye.

To download Microsoft Office Word 2007,I entered the Product Key shown on the label adhered to computer's cover. but the computer did not respond, and a message reads:The key is incorrect, verify that...


I guess they were asking for the Office serial... Microsoft provides serials but for time-limited trial versions.Go to:
http://us20.trymicrosoftoffice.com/product.aspx?sku=3203819&culture=en-US
and get one of those serials.
To get a non-limited version, you would have to buy Office online.

Product key


Usually for laptops that come bundle with Windows Vista, there is only a 30-60 day trial of Office 2007 and not the full version. So unless stated otherwise, there will be no product key for Office 2007 with the laptop and you will need to buy Office 2007.

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.
