Preinstalled Office 2003 is not Activated but Office 2007 home and studend is activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    i have a Preinstalled Office 2003  on my Computer, but I never activated it, because I installed a Office 2007 home and studend on my PC. This is alredey activated. Now I wanted to download an Add in to create pdfs with my office 2007, but the genuine check tells me, that my office 2003 is not activated and I´m not allowed to download the add in.

     

    My attemds to deinstall the office 2003 failed, becouse the office 2003 does not apear in the System-> Software list.

     

    What can I do to deinstall the office 2003 and why is genuine not detecting my office 2007 at all?

     

    Thanks for any help

     

    Thomas

  • I try´d the clean up utillity. It works without any error messages, but it does not solve my problem. I´m unable to deinstall the office 2003 and the genuine test does not detect my Office 2007
