Question about PC Laptops
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?!
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! : )
