re-install after crash? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded and purchased MS Streets & Trips 2011 about a year ago. Then my computer died. I bought a new one and reinstalled S&T on my new computer, but it calls itself a trial edition. How do I recover and apply/activate the password/registration I paid for a year ago?

  • Cal, you are talking to the wrong department. While this indeed is the Microsoft's forum, you need to contact the Microsoft's store.

  • Hi Cal,

    I think the software activation code is on a sticker attached to the DVD case.

  • Sure, on the 2010 case. But my version that was lost is the 2011 downloaded version. I paid to have it activated and become a non-free non-trial version. There is no case or sticker on a download. (G)  They sent me an activation code when I paid, but that email was lost when the computer died.

    The code I do have, which I recovered from a backup,  from the old 2011 version, does not fit in the blanks for re-registering the re-installed 2011 version.

  • Cal, contact the online retailer to find out if there's a way for you (or them) to retrieve your code from their database.

  • That's what this message is. A contact with MS, hopefully. I bought it from Microsoft and this is the Microsoft web site forum.

  • That worked, thanks. After a few screens in the Support and Contact area, my product code appeared and I entered it and am now using S&T without the trial version nag.
