The product key is the specific "code" for an application or for a software etc... which is set to the specific copy of that product. Suppose if you are installing a copy of Microsoft Office 2007, you'll be asked to enter the 25 character product key, means you'll need to type in the key that came with the copy of the Microsoft Office 2007 when you bought. It's written on the Cd/Dvd case or sometimes you can find it on the Product Tag/Sticker of your Laptop or of your Desktop. If you purchased the software, you have to obtain it from the seller, if they can't give you the key, means they are not a genuine dealers.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

    Well, let me know which program you are installing. Microsoft office or Norton or the Windows. Thanks.

    i do not understand your question

    Ok, I don't understand yours either :-). Actually I was trying to find out what program you are installing on your system. How is it asking you to enter the product key? It just pops up or were you running any program? Without a reason, you'll not be asked to enter the Product key. It's important to know what program's or software's product key you are talking about. Otherwise, i can't assume myself. Every software has specific keys and unique serial numbers/codes. I hope you understand now.


    Thanks.

    Thanks, but still few questions more, you may be annoying, but without knowing all these, it's not possible. I guess you got the Microsoft Office including the Microsoft Power Point when you purchased the Machine. If you installed it by yourself or by a technician, then you might have installed only the trial version of microsoft office not the full version with the valid Product Key. Did you get any notification that your trial period of the Microsoft office or Microsoft power point or Microsoft Word is ...... days left, or similar warnings? Have you ever seen such Message popped up?


    If you purchased it by yourself, you must have gotten the Product key and it's compulsory to enter it at the time when you install it on your computer. Otherwise, it's a Trial Version.




    The main problem is that, even if I give you a product key, it'll not work since your copy and my copy of the MS-Office is different. The currently installed version will not be usable after few days or several days. After the Trial Period is expired, you'll be able to even modify and save the changes. Also you'll notice that any opened files are locked, means you don't have any access with them, except reading.




    You can download the latest full version from the Microsoft Official website or from online stores. I can also suggest give you links to download crack versions, means it's not illegal and the copy is not legal. But by any means you can use them. I also hate purchasing new copies since the price is very high, as an alternative, we have Openoffice a freeware program similar to Microsoft Office. Let me know how should I help you and about the queries i've mentioned above.




    Thanks.

    Yes, they will be able to help you. In fact they should give you the MS-Office full version pre-installed (included in the price), so they shouldn't cheat you. You have the rights to claim another copy if they can't give you the exact product key. Good luck. If you still need my help, I am always available. Thanks for using FixYa.
