Trying to upgrade to Office Standard 2007 from works

I have just purchased a new pc for my daughter and it comes with works and I have an upgrade to office standard. No matter what the MS site says, it does not allow you to upgrade as it cant find the acceptable earlier version to upgrade from

Any help greatly appreciated.

Why did you get the upgrade to standard.? I would have thought that the Student version would have been cheaper, and has all the important features of standard.


as far as installation is concerned I have found that when it trys to search for a valid product it also allows you to insert the install disk of a qualifying product. try that approach......

perhaps also if you have a previous version of office from your previous machine you can use that also.

I need a microsoft office 2007 product key

Some computers come with a trial of office preloaded. When the trial is up the program will ask for a product key. The only legal option is to purchase the software.

How can i upgrade my ms word 2003 to ms word 2007?

You need to purchase a copy of Office 2007 (there are various levels you can buy depending on what programs you need)

From there, you can usually just pop in the disk and it will offer to Upgrade your Office 2003 to 2007.

My microsoft office cannot be working, when i upgrade my microsoft office 2007 to 2010 only 30 days now is can't working.

Unfortunately, you need to purchase a new product key. Upgrades are not automatic with Microsoft Office. You can buy the software online or in any office products store (Staples, Office Depot, etc...).

I am loading up a new Dell computer with Windows 7 Pro, I have the upgrade for Office 2007 ( that I purchased) but only have upgrades since office 95. How can I load Office 2007 upgrade on this new...

Is the disk-drive from the old computer attached as a "slave" disk-drive on the new computer?
If so, then the "upgrade" utility should find the "qualifying" files, and allow the "upgrade" to proceed.

Is Office 95 listed as a "qualifying" product for the Office 2007 upgrade?
If so, then insert the CD-ROM for Office 95 when running the Office 2007 installer.
Or, insert the CD-ROM for the Office 2000/XP/2003 upgrade when requested.

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.

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

Windows Vista and Office Pro 2003

hi, yes you can install office 2003 while you already have office 2007. you just need to change the installation directory when you launch the setup for office 2003. change it into something apart from what office 2007 already is installed in. so what you're trying to say is that you should be entitled to an upgrade to office 2007 if office 2003 doesn't work? i would maybe think so... but no solid answer for that one.
