  • Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office.  If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program, it s likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.


    The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows Vista (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office.  Please review the following:
