No - The product key is the "proof of purchase"
Can you move into a new apartment without a key?

I have office small business 2007 on my old Toshiba laptop. just purchased a new Dell N5050 and want to install the office program on it . Microsoft will not accept my 25 digit key number .what do I do?


You will have to uninstall it from your laptop first because the license key is still in use.
So it depends on how you bought the software for the old computer.
Only one one type of MS license is transferable to a new computer. It is known as a FPP license. Typically you get a FPP license by buying the Retail (big ugly ecologically insensitive, mind bending) Yellow Plastic box With the CD in it. You can also get FPP licenses electronically, but you have to ask for them specifically and pay a little more.
Other MS licenses include:
*MLK (Medialess Key) ie electronic download,
*OEM, preinstalled by manufacturer.
*PKC, Product Key Card
These licenses are typically sold at at discount from the retail price.
You have to figure out what type of license you have.
If you have a FPP license, to transfer it, you simply uninstall it from the old machine and install it on the new machine. In theory, internet activation should be automatic, but you may have to phone activation and explain to the service rep. During install and activation you are given option of doing internet or phone activation.
So without further investigation you could simply do the uninstall, install and see what happens. If you have to do the phone activation the SR will explain to you that the product key does not quality for transfer.

Hello unfortunatly i formatted my laptop recently and now my lap top doesnt have microsoft office.. so can u tell me wat should i do now..


If you have the original packaging and the official MS Office CD/DVD disks, then just reinstall the software.

If you stuck the "product-key" decal for MS Office onto the side of your computer, borrow the official CD/DVD disks from a friend, and reinstall, using their media and your license-key.

Otherwise, you'll need to buy another copy of the software.

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.

I have just purchased a new computer with Works 9 pre-installed, but it is asking for a product key if I want to use Word. I do not seem to have been sent a Product Key other than the one on the computer...


The preinstalled software was a evaluation product the manufacturer was paid to install on your computer.

You do not need to enter a registration key to continue working with the native Microsoft Works 9 SE applications: Works Word Processor, Works Spreadsheet, and Works Database. However, the integrated Microsoft Office 2007 trial version is for evaluation purposes only. At the end of the trial period the product will go into reduced functionality mode and you will have the option to convert it into a full version. You can obtain a 60-day trial registration key from the Microsoft web site or you can buy the program and get a full license key.
