Problems with product key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I have windows vista edition. I recently got a new laptop and have been trying to put my product key in when i open microsoft works, it says that the number is incorrect even tho it is the correct number from the sticker on my laptop. Could any one please help as word and powerpoint are pretty much not functioning now? Thanks!

  • Hi Qev,



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