  • Hello EmyLou_92

    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 is likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.

    NOTE: The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows Vista (the operating system) and not for any other Microsoft software.
