Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I am trying to use Microsoft Office and enter the product key. The message appears to say that the product key is invalid. I called Acer who told me to restore factory settings which I did but the same thing happens
As I supposed before you have a demo version of MsOffice that comes preinstalled with your operating system (Vista). It gets inactivated after several times of use until you provide a valid key. It means you have to purchase a licence. The key you have on the bottom of your laptop is, as it is written on it, the activation key for Vista. You can not use it to activate another porduct.
If you need a free software for your office work I suggest you to download and to install Open Office from the following link :
It is similar with MsOffice and the main difference is that you have to save your files in format compatible with MsOffice so that to be able to open them on other computers with MsOffice. The format file you will choose it from a list of option you have during the saving procedure (98/2000/xp .doc for Word or .xls for Excel or .ppt for Power Point).
