HELP! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work for a company that has purchased Microsoft Office 2003 Professional Edition. For the last two weeks, I've been getting messages whenever I open any Office applications that says in so many days, it will expire. Since I first received a message, I have tried fixing the problem as directed by a thread on this forum (deleting the Data.dat file), and downloading numerous "fix its."  Once I'd run the "fix its" or deleted the files, there was no problem the rest of the day. The next day, I open up Outlook or Excel and I get the same message again. I've clicked on  "activated license" in the Help pull-down menus. I get a pop-up that says my license has been activated. What can I do? Nothing is working and my company purchased Office from Microsoft. I only have 1 day remaining until this has expired.

    The only thing I can think of that would be causing this problem is that I had it installed on my old machine and then transferred it over to my new one. Do I need to uninstall it on that one so that the license isn't recognizing two machines? (The old machine is no longer being used and has not been turned on in almost a year.)

    Please help!
