  • I have done this...gone to every MS website andfound nothing helpful.  My trial continues to ask me to convert when I have already done so....I know there must be aproblem because it never ask me to read and agree to the lic agreement...?

  • Did you purchase a "full version" or "upgrade version" of Microsoft Office 2007?  In order to convert a trial version to a perpetual license version, you need a product key for a "full version".

  • Unfortunately, virtually all the Microsoft software sold on auction web sites, such as eBay, is counterfeit, non-genuine and not authentic.  Next time, purchase your Microsoft software from a trusted, reliable and proven source such as the  Microsoft Store.
