Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hallo, I have the following problem with my licensed MS Office 2000. I would like to install it on my old notebook, P-III, HDD 10GB. However, I lost the CD key for it. Note that the Microsoft license allows one to install one extra copy to a notebook. It isalso noted that I cannot instal an Office 2007 or 2010 on my old notebook due to small HDD 10GB. Therefofe, to instal the old office 2000 is prefareble in this case. There is the following number on my licensed CD around the cd cemter hole: wz4511 . x04-66298 (BH01) 01. What does it mean? Is it posssible with this number to find out the CD Key for this licensed Office 2000?

    Thank You for Your quick reply to my problem. Indeed, I just wrote the same question in the linkYou wrote me

    I am waiting for an answer from Microsoft. However, my opinion is that the Microsoft has now an interest in their new products, Office 2010, for new computers and microsoft has no interest in supporting owners of Microsoft Office 2000 licensed old CDs with old computers!!!
    I am sorry about that. My notebook is very old, but it is still alive and working good.

MS Office Home 2010 is a valid product purchased during 2010 and has been used on various of my older Notebooks without any trouble. How do I download MS Office Home Business 2010 without an error mes

Microsoft Office is like any other MS product....the license key gives you the right to install it on as many machines as the license allows. That being said, if you want to move the software from one machine to another, it may or may not accept the license key immediately. MS usually has about a 90-day time lag on freeing up the keys when they have been activated. This way you can't buy one copy and immediately install it on ten different machines. Even so, you can call the MS activation number and activate a copy if you need to without waiting. You mentioned "downloading" it. Don't you keep a downloaded executable copy as a backup? Most people do. Re-downloading it every time you need to install it wastes bandwidth and in some cases, there is a maximum time limit that you can download from Digital River on a license key.

If you are looking for a product key, even volume licensing, you will need to purchase the licensing. If you have already purchased the key but lost it and have it installed on a computer then you can recover it by using an application like Magic Jelly Bean. Otherwise it is into the abyss that is MS licensing.

Upgrade or purchase full version of Office 2007 Pro

With all instances of new software you must purchase a full version. I wish that you could get a dicount by turing in your old sofwares product key but that isnt the case. You must purchase full retail versions in order for everything to work as it should.

Have a compact need a office key code instaed of trail version

If you have the Cardboard CD case that came with your license, use the Code on the back of the jewel case. If you don't there are several options.
#1. Use OpenOffice, a MS Office clone that works almost as well as the original, and the program is free.
#2. Buy a version of MS Office. Older versions of Office can be found for as little as $50. We have some (Office 2000 Small Business Edition) for sale in our office if you have a hard time finding one, let me know.
#3. Student & Teacher edition- MS makes the educational version available for a very nice price. The bonus is you can use the license legally on up to three computers. I found one of these on sale for $79 at w/ free ship.

I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.
