Enterprise 2007 Key Code RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a copy of enterprise 2007 and installed it about 6-9 months ago.  No probelem with install or activation.  Unfortunately my computer crashed and I need to reinstall.  However, the piece of paper that I saved and I thought had the key code on it didn't.  My question:  Is there a way to find the key code from the disc?  If not is there a way to get a key code the will allow me to re-install my software.

  • Hello bradly275,

      Enterprise versions of Office are not sold to consumers. the only way to get a copy of an Enterprise versions of Office is to have a Volume Licenses Agreement with Microsoft for 5 or more Enterprise licenses.  These Licenses can not be resold. If you have a Licensing Agreement with Microsoft (you would know if you did, it costs allot) you can look up the Product Key in the Licensing Agreement documentation. 

      If your copy of Office did not come with a Product Key (Printed on a card found in the packaging...not writen on a piece of paper) then, combined with it being Enterprise version, it is highly unlikely the software is Genuine. 

       To answer your question, you can find Product keys (and software) for Office at http://store.microsoft.com/home.aspx or any trusted Microsoft retailer.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS

  • Sorry I have not responded sooner the flu is going around here and I was out for a few days.

    My employer, the State of Michigan, has the Volume License Agreement and as an employee I was allowed to purchase a copy of Office Enterprize 2007 at a reduced cost directly from Microsoft.  I would purchase another copy through the program because of the lost key code but I am only allowed to purchase one copy.

    Back to my question:  Is there a way to find the key code from the disc or any other method?  Or am I just out my original purchase price?

  • Thanks, I had forgotten what the program was called and thanks for the links.  Hopefully someone there can help me. 

    I am trying to follow the copyright laws on this even though I have found a number of sites that indicate they have key and activation code generators.  That is why I chose this forum to ask the question.

    However, judgemental responses like Darin MS's insinuating that I was untruthful in my statement makes it difficult to think of Mircosoft as a consumer friendly company and makes me less inclined to worry too much about Microsoft's rights.

  • Hello bradley275,

    The vast majority of the people that post in these forums are average consumers, and the responders here (Darin of MSFT, Carey, and I) take that into account when we write up our responses.  Darin's first response was posted without the knowledge that you were participating in the HUP program, and the information that he provided was based on the assumption that you as an average consumer were using Office Enterprise 2007, which in the vast majority of cases would mean that you had been victimized by being sold counterfeit software.

    I had the advantage of seeing your second post before I responded, so I knew of your partiticpation in the HUP program, so that led me to post the links for the HUP program's customer service.  Hopefully the customer service system will be able to resend your original product key.  Another suggestion would be to scan your saved emails to see if you saved the email with the product key they originally sent you when you signed up for the HUP.
