Hi there,

This often happens if you have more than one installation of Office on your computer, and they are slightly different versions. You will need to uninstall the previous version of Office if you can and then try the activation again. Do you by any chance have a non-professional version loaded on your computer right now?

If that isn't the case a lot of times if it doesn't work, you will need to call microsoft and activate it over the phone.

This link should give you some more information of what you are looking for to call the center to get the activation approved:

Installing Enteprise edition MS office on Vista

you need to firstly check if you are an administrator. Windows Vista will only allow administrators to install programs.
Go to control panel and users to see if it say's administrator under your user name. If it doesn't then you need to either sign on as the administrator or change your user details to administrator, then you will be able to install it. Once it has loaded and you are happy with it, uninstall the 60 day trial version. It will be using a different liscense key to the new CD version of office that you have.
