  • Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office.  If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program, it s likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.

     

    The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows Vista (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office.  Please review the following:

  • Unless you specifically pay for a Microsoft Office license, you likely have just a trial version of Microsoft Office installed which will expire within a short period of time.  In order to install a Microsoft Office perpetual license, you will need to purchase and install a  Microsoft Office Suite  that is suitable for your needs.
