Product Key Incorrect for Office 07 student version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    My Office 2007 student version was already installed on my computer (which is a netbook, therefore no CD drive) and to activate it I just need to enter the Product key. I recently bought the full version but after I enter it, the activation assistant says that my Product key is incorrect. It can't be as I just bought it. Is this a problem with Office being pre-loaded? Must I install the Microsoft office from the CD, if so, how do I do that (I.e. Can I transfer with a USB?) 


    I also found that my the Office installed on my computer has no Product ID and my version is not a trial version.


    I didnt know which forum to put this in so apologies if it is in the wrong forum.


    Thanks for your help,
