Microsoft Works does not come with Access - that is a Microsoft Office product. Works does come with its own database, but it's not the same thing and I don't think it will read an Access file.

Gee, a MS product that's not compatible with another MS product. Who'd have guessed?

Anyway, check to see if Access is what you really need, and write back here.

I need a free mircosoft word


You have several options.

1. Microsoft Word is part of Office Web Apps which is free and accessible through SkyDrive. You can use SkyDrive with any Microsoft (Hotmail, Live, MSN...) account.

2. If you've bought a computer with Windows 7 pre-installed, chances that Office Starter 2010 comes pre-loaded on your computer, but it is not available until you click Microsoft Office 2010 in the Windows Start menu and then click the option to use Office Starter.

3. Or you can check out these 5 free open source alternatives to Microsoft Office.

Good luck!

Product key windows 7

If Windows 7 was pre-installed on the computer when you bought it,
there must be a "genuine Microsoft decal" glued to the bottom of the laptop,
and that decal will contain the 25-character product-key.

If Windows Vista was pre-installed, the same thing applies to the decal,
and I presume that you made a retail purchase of "Windows 7 Upgrade", and received a product-key with that purchase. Re-use that product-key and the Windows 7 DVD disk.

How can i install micro soft word in my lap top without cd installer

Most Windows Operating systems come pre-installed with Microsoft Word. If yours didn't, you should be able to download it from their website.

This is the 60-day trial for it. If you buy it, they will send you a code. If you have already purchased it, you can put it in before you even start the trial.

If this helped, please give me a good rating. It helps a lot!

How to install palm software

Before you start Please make a note of this page: How To Recover
If you are unfamiliar with basic Linux command usage, you should visit this page: Basic Linux Use
Disclaimer Enacting any set of instructions from this site has the (remote, but greater than zero) potential to void your warranty. Our intention and the specific design of all instructions is such that you should be able to recover using the webOS Doctor should anything go wrong, and put your Pre back to a state which is indistinguishable from a factory-new Pre, but we give no guarantee. Use any information from this site at your own risk. At the very least, you should be prepared to lose all data on your phone at any time. We cannot tell you what you should do - we provide the information, but it's up to your own sense of personal responsibility to determine what you do with that information. We require you to use the webOS Doctor to put your Pre back to factory condition before contacting Palm or your cellular carrier for service or support.
You might also want to consider backing up any files you have in the usb drive portion of the Pre.

In general, simply installing the Palm SDK gives you everything you need for full access to the Linux operating system on the Pre or Pixi. There is no special "rooting" or "jailbreaking" process. Simply installing the SDK provides you with unlimited access to the Linux operating system logged in as the root user. Palm does not see this as a bad thing. Palm provides all these tools for download by anyone, anytime, for free.
  1. Download the Palm SDK.
  2. Install it using the installation instructions for Mac, Linux, or Windows.
  3. Enable dev mode on your Pre:
    1. In Card view or in the Launcher application, type the following: webos20090606
    2. Tap the resulting Developer Mode Enabler icon.
    3. In the application, move the Developer Mode slider to the On position.
    4. Tap Reset the Device .
      • When reset is complete, Developer mode is enabled.
  4. Plug the device into the computer via the USB cable, and select "Charge only."
  5. The next step varies:
    • On Mac or Linux, type novaterm in a command (terminal) window to directly access the Linux command line.
    • On Windows you will need to download and install a novaterm program.
      • On 32 bit Windows download and unzip it into the \program files\palm\sdk\bin directory.
      • On 64 bit Windows download and unzip it into the \program files\palm\sdk\bin directory.
      • Then, just like the Mac and Linux users you can just type novaterm.
At this point you will have a window with a prompt that says root@webos-device: or something similar.
You are now logged in as root on your webOS device and can do anything you would normally do on a Linux device.
Please be careful, you can seriously bork your phone now.
IMPORTANT NOTE: With the addition of the ability to install Optware packages to Preware, unless you have a need or desire to type commands into the native Linux shell of your Palm device, there is no need to use the novaterm terminal to log into your devices. Webos Quick Install (a java program for your desktop) and Preware (an app to run on your device) are fully capable of installing any Optware IPK (including *.patch and *.diff) to Palm devices. Linux command line access is needed by very few people. If you came here from a web page that talked about "root access" or "rooting your Pre" be aware that most of the instructions which require root access have been

I have Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 pre installed on a new laptop. The product key doesn't work and tried the ones given on the Fix'ya website, they didn't work either. Any help? What can I do,...

The product-key on the key is for Microsoft Windows, not for Microsoft Office.
So, you're correct in stating that the key won't work.

What probably was pre-installed was a "trial" version, and you clicked "I agree" (to use the trial version) the first time that you started Microsoft Office. After 30 days, the "trial" period has ended, and it's time to purchase a license-key.

Or, take a closer-look at the license-key: OH-versus-ZERO, ONE-versus-ELL, FIVE-versus-ESS, EIGHT-versus-B, OH-versus-QUEUE.

Need to factory reset without disc how can i do it

First, check if the computer has a recovery partition. The factory image may already be there for you. If your computer is set up that way, you'll see a message at boot time telling you how to access the recovery partition.

You can try getting recovery discs from the manufacturer if you need them. Check their website for support information.

Another option is to borrow a Windows installation CD (the same version as was pre-loaded) from someone and reinstall Windows from that. When asked for the product key you can use the one from the sticker on your computer. You'll need to download any drivers needed from the manufacturer's website. Then you'll need to activate your copy of Windows.

Done this way, you'll have a working Windows installation, but you'll be missing any applications that came preinstalled. This isn't normally a problem unless you paid extra for software like Microsoft Office. In fact, this is often a good thing since your computer isn't loaded up with the unnecessary software the manufacturers usually load on. You can download or purchase and install only the applications you really want, and your computer will run a little better for it.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

You cannot use someone elses key to install a software. It is always copy specific. Else it will be known as SW Piracy. Please do not use someone elses copy of MS Office.
