off topic - 12 digit authorization numbers for Microsoft products RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Where can one fine the 12 digits to enter for Microsoft Word 2007, Excel 2007, etc. ? When I purchased my computer and tried to open the Microsoft Word application, it immediately asked for the 12 digit authorization number, but no such information was provided anywhere that I could find. Is that the same as purchasing a license to operate the Microsoft products? I referred me to a website, but that was not at all helpful. I am allowed to use the products something like 20 times without the authorization numbers, and after that it goes into some other restricted mode unless one enters those numbers. If anyone has insights on this, thanks for your help.
