Office 2007 Standard or Office 2007 Home & Student RRS feed

  • Question

  • My laptop came pre-loaded with 60 Day Free Trial of Office 2007 Home & Student.

    I wanted the 60 day free trial for Office 2007 Standard, so that's what I applied for, and received, not 1, but 2 Product Keys. One of the 2 keys I received by e-mail on 05/27/07, matches the one I received online.


    As you would guess, neither of those keys would activate the Home & Student version. Just thought I'd try since there were no directions on how I should proceed to use one of them for the Standard version, or nothing to explain why I received 2 Keys.


    I still want the free trial for the Standard version, but don't know how to activate it. If I can't get the Standard version, can I still get a key for the Home & Student version.
