Microsoft Office Trial Version and Upgrade

Just bought a laptop yesterday that had the Microsoft Office trial version already installed. I bought the Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Upgrade disk. Will the upgrade work or do I need to buy the full version? If the upgrade will work, do I just need to run the disk or do I need to delete the trial version before I install, or, do I just need to put in the liscence number and not have to install anything?!

    So how do I know if I fit any of the qualifying criteria? I just took the laptop out of the box yesterday. Is there anyway to find out if I have valid licsence for any of the programs? I would assume that Microsoft Works would have a licscence but I want to be sure before I open up the Upgrade.

    So it would be safe to assume that somewhere on the laptop I have a liscence number that would allow me just to use an Upgrade instead of having to buy a full version?

I was having trouble installing Office upgrade on top of Works because of Works bug. Could not install works patch because it needed the install disk (which HP does not provide). I installed the Trial version of Office and installed the upgrade on top of that with no problem. I'm not sure what is going to happen after the end of the 60-day trial period. We'll see and I'll hit you back.

You should not have any problem installing it over the already installed version. According to the Microsoft website, any version of Office 2007 is eligible for the upgrade. You should not uninstall the trial version since the upgrade disk you purchased will look for an installed Office product that it can upgrade. If the upgrade requires an uninstall, it will probably do it itself. I would definitely go through the installation.

Hope this helps! : )

    That is my assumption. Worse case scenerio - you try to install the upgrade version and it tells you that you need to purchase the full version. It will not install and you'll still have the trial version installed. Of course, then you'll have to purchase the full version but you might be able to sell your upgrade version to someone who needs it.

I need the product key to install microsoft officeon aspire netbook D257-1679


I would advise you to buy and install only a genuine licensed version of Microsoft Office or you will almost certainly have authorization problems, which defeat the object of installing the software.

You can buy a genuine licensed version of Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Plus Edition starting from about $85 or Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus Edition for about $78 (plus shipping and packing) from (and similar websites):

http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Office_Professional_Plus_2007-details.aspx


http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Office_2010_Professional_Plus-details.aspx


There are some websites online which claim that you can download Microsoft Office from them but as far as i know there is nowehere on the internet where you can download a genuine copy of any Microsoft Office software except the official Microsoft website.


The only Microsoft Office product you can download is the trial version of whatever latest version of Microsoft Office that is available. Currently you can only download Microsoft Office 2010 trial. Trial versions of Microsoft Office are free to download but can only be used for the limited trial period. After the trial period ends you have to upgrade to the full version and pay Microsoft for an online activation code which unlocks the trial version's time limitation and allows you to use it indefinitely.


If you need this type of software but do not want to or cannot afford to pay the price of Microsoft Office, then you can use completely free Office software like Open Office, which is very similar to Microsoft Office and can even be used to open most Microsoft Office documents. You don't have to pay anything at all to download OpenOffice.


The website for Microsoft Office trial and activation code downloads is: www.microsoft.com


The website for OpenOffice is: www.openoffice.org

I bought a laptop with microsoft office 2007 already installed but the product key thats on the sticker does not work can u help please


That product key is actually for your Windows operating system.

The Microsoft Office Pro that you have there is a trial version. Usually 30-60 days trial period. You have to buy the product with a valid product key separately.

Hope this helps!

I can't access Microsoft Office even when it is genuine.


It sounds like you had a trial version of Microsoft Office installed. To use the full version you will need to buy a license of Microsoft Office.

How do I go about buying a Product Key for Microsoft office home and Student 2007? I bought a new laptop and they never gave me a product code


If you have a trial version of MS Office Home and Student Edition already installed in your computer, you must buy a retail package of that same programe (MS Office Home and Student Edition) and language of the trial installed.
Then you can use the product key of the package you bought to convert your trial into a full version.
To convert MS Office Home and Studente Edition, you don't just buy a key, you must buy the full package with the CD you can use for future installations.

Can't install microsoft office small business 2007 upgrade


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

It depends which trial version was downloaded. You can't reinstall the same trial download but they do have other trial downloads.

There is a student 2007, small business 2007, professional 2007 etc. versions. You can download each one of these if you have not already used these trial versions. They all offer the basics...Word, Excell, Powerpoint, Outlook with added software depending on what version you download.
