Product Key for Microsoft Office

Whenever I open microsoft Office 2007 I'm asked to enter the product key. I tried to enter the one at the back of my laptop but it was rejected. However a friend of mine told me that the one at the back of my laptop is for windows vista and not 4 microsoft office. The software on my laptop was pre-installed by HP including Microsoft office. Where can I get or locate the Key for Microsoft office? I have tried to check on the  back up CDs that came with the laptop but can't see It. Please help.

Re: Product Key for Microsoft Office

Apparently, you have a trial version of Microsoft Office installed and the trial period has ended.  In order to continue to use Microsoft Office, you'll have to purchase a Microsoft Office license (product key).

Re: Product Key for Microsoft Office

That or you can use Microsoft Works which does the same thing and it's free and it comes with every HP computer.

 

Start, all programs, Microsoft Works, and you have works word processor, spreadsheet, etc.

 

Or you can uninstall the current Microsoft Office program, go to trymicrosoftoffice.com and click on the Home and Student 2007 and download the trial and sign up for the 60day key and you get another 60 days.

 

That's another way.

 

Alternatively there's also the free Open office suite which may look different but it's free from openoffice.org

I have Office Professional 2007 with that set hand written on a note piece, kinda hard to read, if first doesn't succeed, you might swap out the {Content Removed}...good luck.

Re: Product Key for Microsoft Office

Why not use a free alternative.  Try OpenOffice, for example: http://download.cnet.com/OpenOffice-org/3000-18483_4-10263109.html

The office applications are close enough to be able to run most of the documents as though it was Microsoft Office.
