Hi. recently i had purchased dell inspiram laptop with windos 7 home premium inbuilt operating system.i also had microsoft office 2010 preloaded . i need 25 characters product key to use microsoft...


Hi,

Laptops that have pre-installed Microsoft Office in it usually have 60-day trial version or Microsoft Office starter. The trial version may be a Home edition and has the full features but will ask for a product key after the trial period expires. The MS Office Starter only has limited features for MS Word and Excel only, but this is not a trial version.

If you want to continue using the trial MS Office or want the full functionality of MS Word and MS Excel plus MS powerpoint etc, you need to follow the steps provided to activate or purchase a product key from the application itself. You need to purchase the product key from Microsoft since this program is unfortunately not free.

Hope this helps.

I need to remove the genuine microsoft sottware my system....


Most suites or programs of Microsoft Office 2007 allows user to evaluate the product. The trial version of 2007 Microsoft Office system can be installed by using a 25-character trial product key available from Microsoft while you download the free Office software, and you can use the Microsoft Office 2007 suite or program with full functionality for 60 days.

You may have the Office 2007 CD and are able to install Office 2007 without entering product key. However, Office 2007 will work in reduced functionality mode, where it’s effectively just a viewer for Office documents. Beside, if you forget the trial product key, or don’t wish to register a Windows Live ID to get the trial key, here’s the trick to activate Office 2007, or more correctly, bypass the activation of Office 2007 60 days trial, and making the “trial” word disappear from the Office title at the top and suppress activation and trial expiry prompt.
Note that to use Microsoft Office 2007 beyond 60 days trial period, you need to purchase a valid license for it, available from Amazonir?t=techgadgetrev-20&l=ur2&o=1 or most computer retail store.
To use this hack to crack activation on Office 2007, you need to install Office 2007 without any serial number or product key. If you have installed Office 2007 with a product key or serial number, do the following to clean remove Office 2007 of product key:
  1. Close all Microsoft Office applications.
  2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start -> Run, and then type “regedit” in the Open box and press Enter key.
  3. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration
    Note that inside the registry key, there should be another subkey that resembles the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{90120000-0030-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE
    or
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{91120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE
  4. If there is more than one registry entries or subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, open up each subkey, and then identify the product by the ProductName value data until you locate the subkey for the product which you want to remove the existing product license key. For example:
    Product Name=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
    Product Name=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
  5. Once found the correct registry subkey, delete the following values: DigitalProductID
    ProductID
  6. Close Registry Editor.
Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:
  1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\
  2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select “Open With…” in the right click menu.
  3. In the “Open With” window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file. In Vista, if you can’t see the Notepad option, simply double click the “Other Programs” to unhide it.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines: </Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248′>
    <OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/>
    </Feature>
  5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following: <OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/>
  6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
  7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.
As usual, as it’s a hack, and before you purchase a valid product key for it, you won’t be able to AND can’t access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.
Note: The hack may work for 60 days only. To make this hack fully working, try to delete additional file below, probably has to be deleted every two months:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA\opa12.dat
Or,
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA (for Windows 7 and Vista)

Vista fail to activate 25 digit key


Where did you get the cd kay or activation key? CD key is unique. The trial version Microsoft Office is valid for 30days only. If you need to activate it again you should purchase a serial number from the Microsoft site or buy a Microsoft cd installer.

Note that if you buy a cd installer, you must first uninstall the trial version that is loaded on your machine before installing the Microsoft installer cd.

Product key for ms office 2007 std. trial


If the Microsoft Office — 60-day trial desktop icon is on your computer, you may have the Activation Assistant in the Microsoft Office folder to request a trial activation key online. If you can’t locate the Activation Assistant, request a trial activation key online.

I can't post a key to MS Office as that is considered piracy. I can however give you a link to a 60 day free trial of office

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/HA101741481033.aspx

After the free trial expires, a license must be purchased.

If you have a legitimate copy of Office Home and Student edition, the product key is on the CD case. If you lost the case, you might be able to contact Microsoft for a new key (For a fee)

Product key


Dear Vina, Office 2007 is not free.

If somebody gives you a product key, that key had been stolen from somebody that paied for the product.

There are other websites that dedicate to piracy and criminal activities of this kind, sure Fixya is not the right place where to ask for stolen keys.

I am sure you will understand.

Goodbye.

Microsoft office


Hi, if Office is telling you that its lying! The product key on the back of your computer is only for the Windows operating system itself not for Office. If you own MS Office you would have gotten a CD along with the product key for Office no matter what. Let me guess though, Microsoft Office was already installed on your computer when you purchased it right? In this case what you have is a trial version if you didn't activate the trial there should be a link someone when you launch Office that lets you how. If you already started your trial then you would have about 60 days before the trial ran out.
