Change the product key Office 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new laptop and have have a preinstalled version of Office 2007 trial. I thought we got a full version with a product key, but the product key we had was for Windows 7.

    I entered it into Office 2007 and it accepted it at first then when logged on the net it will not activate as it is telling me it has already been activated.

    We went out on the weekend and picked up from the shops on sale 2007 Office and now have a product key, my problem is, how do I change it in Office? It seems that everywhere I look the old key is there and not the proper key.

    Or because I have a pre installed trial version, I have to uninstall and install from the discs I got?

  • Uninstall the current version of Microsoft Office, then reinstall using the new Office 2007 installation CD.
