Office 2007 Ultimate - Real or Bootleg ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to find a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate on eBay for a decent price.

    Below are 2 pictures showing the Microsoft COA's from the top of the packages.

    This one is Ultimate with Accounting Express 2007 Printed on the cover:

    Ultimate # 1


    This one is Ultimate with Accounting Express 2008 Printed on the cover:

    Ultimate # 2


    My question is how can I be sure these are not Bootleg copies?

    To me the first one looks more official than the second but both claim to be 100% legit.

    The second may be newer as it has accounting express 2008 rather than 2007.

    What ya think?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,


    Well honestly we can't verify if software is legit or not.  First I would recommend for you to visit http://www.howtotell.com.  Next I would recommend visiting Microsoft Marketplace @ http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/ . You can purchase directly from Microsoft. Take care and hopefully I provided you with some guidance.


    Thank you,

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I've seen the how to tell site and still have no clue.

    Both of these look legit but I guess you would not know until you tried to install one.

    Better to just purchase at Best Buy as I'm sure their software is legit.
