More than likely unless you paid an additional fee at the time of purchase to have Microsoft Office then it is a trial version which is installed on your laptop. It may ,if it hasn't already, allow to use it 10-20 times before you can no longer use it fully (I say fully because it will allow you to view files but not alter them if you do not input the product key)

And yes you can let the trial expire and later purchase the full version. It would be easiest to purchase the product key direct from microsoft that way all you have to do is input the key when it asks for it...once you enter the product key you will have full access. This is because the full version is already installed on your computer..just waiting for you to input the product key.

P.S. there are other options such as open source software i.e. openoffice.org

Please rate my response..and...Good Luck!!!!

I keep getting setup error which says You cannot install the 64 bit version of Office 2010 because you have 32-bit Office products installed. These 32-bit products are not supported iwht 64-bit insta


If you have downloaded it as a free trial, go to the office page and get the office for your system.
Remember to check what system is yours: Start/Computer/View System properties/information/32/64 bit system.

I have a laptop of ACER which has window 7. Microsoft Office 2007 is already install in this laptop. But i cant run because it demands product key. I already used trial product which had limit of 25 times....


Just because the software is pre installed, doesn't mean you have the full version.

I'd imagine you have a laptop with a trial version of the software installed. You may have been mis-sold this and assumed you have the full version.

You need to buy a product key. The cheapest fix is to uninstall your version of Microsoft Office Standard, and purchase a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student for about £70.

You could always use OpenOffice which is free, and allows you to use Microsoft Office documents.

Can not install windows 7


if you are doing an upgrade from windows vista to windows 7 check first the version of your vista operating system, for example if you are using windows vista home premium 32 bit then the windows 7 CD that you need is windows 7 home premium 32 bit also, cant mix any versions or types of bit. it should be always the same. try also to download the windows upgrade advisory run it and check for programs and applications that you installed or pre-installed in your computer that cant affect the installation, remove those programs and applications that are not compatible with windows 7. just install those back again after.

if you are doing a clean installation of the windows 7
check first if the system requirements for windows 7 installation is applicable to the specification of your computer. if your system is capable the bqack up your files and go ahead with the installation

i hope this helps
Pls rate my resolution thanks!!

I just bought a new dell inspirion 1318 due to my old laptop crashing. I had purchased Office small business 2007 when I bought the first laptop. I am trying to install it and after I put in the code it...


I think you have stumbled onto the problem Windows comes in two versions...32 bit and 64 bit. It sounds like you have a new laptop with 64 bit operating system, where as your old system was 32 bit. You can confirm it by going to Start >Control Panel >System and look for the line System Type under System section. It will tell you what type it is. Look at your Office package and it will most likely say 32 bit on it.

Here's a link to Microsoft which will explain the difference and answer many questions.

Trouble installing microsoft office 2007 on a dell laptop


That particular file cabinet that you really should find on a properly registered version of Microsoft Office for English in the US as a registration number will be necessary to fully install Office.

Call Microsoft, and tell them that it's not there, though it should be.

Supply them your C(ertificate O(f) A(uthencity) and you should be good to go.

WINDOW VISTA


I think ur Vista is pirated or not cracked version. First of all install the full version of OS, after that problem will solved. There is no supporting version of office 2007 with vista, whenever any software is not supported with vista the problem is OS itself. so try to uninstall it. reinstall OS
