Re: upgrading microsoft works 4.0
In order to use Works 4.0 files, they must first be converted using software that includes a text converter - Works 8.0 and several versions of Word include this. You can use 8.0, or use 8.0 to convert to that format, and then they would be usable in 9.0 as well. If you desire further detail, see here.

I am not sure about what actual problem here is, but if u have upgraded existing windows sp2 to sp3, there is chance that few registry files gets errors and may cause functioning. I would recommend you re-installl the OS and try
The product key on the computer is only for the Windows operating system. It won't work for Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, ...). Unless you paid extra for Microsoft Office, you have a free trial copy that will expire after 25 uses (of all Office programs combined) or 60 days. Until then, you can use the trial copy by just clicking the Continue button in the registration window without entering anything in the product key boxes.
But be warned: When the trial period expires -- with little or no warning -- you'll be able to read and print your documents, but not much more. Here are some of your options for paying less than full price for Microsoft Office 2007:
First, if you're a student, you may qualify for the Ultimate Steal edition of Office at a pretty good price ($59.95):
Note that the higher of the two prices quoted is for a full version of that program and the lower, for upgrades from existing software. Read the list of upgrade-qualifying software carefully: MS Works is often one, and may have come on your machine.
Finally, if you're willing to spend a little to save a little, Microsoft Works is available in stores for about $40.00. You could buy a copy, install it, then buy Office at the upgrade level. I think you'd come out ahead. Note that the upgrade copy probably checks your machine for Works' presence, so don't get rid of it after you've installed Office. You never know when you're going to have to reinstall Office.
Also, if you have files that are locked up in the new Word 2007 file format (.docx), here's a possibility for salvaging them. Microsoft offers a free Compatibility pack that allows earlier versions of Word (and Microsoft Works) to read and write Word 2007 files. If you have access to an earlier version, this can at least give you back your documents. Some new features of Word 2007 will be lost or converted to straight text in the conversion to the earlier version.
Is the disk-drive from the old computer attached as a "slave" disk-drive on the new computer?
If so, then the "upgrade" utility should find the "qualifying" files, and allow the "upgrade" to proceed.
Is Office 95 listed as a "qualifying" product for the Office 2007 upgrade?
If so, then insert the CD-ROM for Office 95 when running the Office 2007 installer.
Or, insert the CD-ROM for the Office 2000/XP/2003 upgrade when requested.
I have fixed my problem. I realised that the Microsoft Access Database DSN did not include the *.accdb driver. I deleted the existing DSN and created a new one. This allowed me to select the ODBC driver that worked for both file types.
I cameto realise that I was only having this problem on machines that have been upgraded to excel 2007 and not on machines with full virgin installations. On install both try to create the appropriate DSN but one with the same name already exists on the machines being upgraded and the creation fails.
The upgrade version is only to upgrade a previous version of MS office. The trial version does not qualify as previous version to be upgraded. You need to purchase the full product rather than the upgrade.
If you know somebody who has MS office 2003 with a valid product key, you could install that version, and then upgrade it with the product that you purchased
You can use Files and Settings Transfer Wizard or User State Migration Tool. Also, with that size of an environment you should consider hosting your own mail and use Exchange. Also, are you in a domain environment?
