  • Hello mel maurer,

    When you download an Office trial, the download system displays the product key to use to activate the Trial, and you also get an email with that product key to activate the Trial.

    At one time Microsoft used to offer the option of requesting a second trial product key, but it would seem that this is no longer available based on the empty web page here:  http://us20.trymicrosoftoffice.com/oemsplash.aspx?culture=en-US

    It's probably best if you uninstall what you have now, then start over as described below:

    To re-download or to receive a replacement Trial Activation Key for the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program of your choice, you will need to go through the registration process again. Please use the following steps:

    1. Go to: http://www.trymicrosoftoffice.com/

    2. Click the "Try Now" button next to the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program you would like to download.

    3. You will now be prompted to register for the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program. When registering, you will need to enter your email address. Please enter an email address that you monitor on a regular basis, as this is where you will receive the product key for the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program. Again, by registering for the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program you will receive a series of emails on information about the Trials program. You can unsubscribe from either at any time by following instructions in the e-mail you receive.

    When the registration is completed, you will be able to download the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial program that you have chosen by clicking the "Download Now" button.
