Lost Office 2007 Product Key

Q: Lost Office 2007 Product Key

A received a copy of Office 2007 Professional from Microsoft when they ran the Power of One promotion a few years back. Microsoft then mailed a key and receipt, along with instructions of where to go to download office (no CD was mailed), all in a manila envelope, which I kept. Along the way, a family member threw away the entire envelope while cleaning out a drawer. I still have Office installed on my computer, but would like to reformat my hard drive. I was wondering if there was any way to retrieve the key from my computer, seeing as Office costs around $500. Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This might be a lost cause but i formatted pc and went to reinstall office but i can't find the sleeve with the product key on it, is there any way to find it on the CD itself or will i need to get a new copy? I know you can find it if its installed but not sure if it isn't.
 
 

A:Office 2007 Small Business - Have the CD but I lost the Product Key

You could have found it from the original installation on the hard drive. But since you say the hard drive has been formatted I don't know of any way to retrieve it. If it was registered with Microsoft you 'could' try and contact them. I'm not sure how successful you would be. But the key code is not on the install disk.

I'm looking at a friend's laptop. The HD has many bad sectors and I'll be replacing it. Given the errors on the drive, I'm unable to image or clone it to the new drive as imaging will not complete.

The laptop was given to this person. It has Office Enterprise 2007 installed. They don't have the install CDs. I am able to extract the product key with magic jellybean, but my copy of Office is home and student.

Will I be able to install from my Office home and student 2007 CD and use their Office Enterprise product key? I know that there are different programs with Enterprise, but I think all they care about is Word and PowerPoint.

Thanks for any help.

Probably not. The product number won't match. This is one of the first things "Genuine Microsoft" checks.

The bad sectors should have been re-written. You might try a better recovery program like ZAR.

Without that my grace period will end and I will no longer be able to open these attachments. She is also sending me word documents and there is no product key and configuration issue with these. Is there some way around the excel configuration/setup screen so I can continue working in XP with her attachments or has microsoft figured out a way to make be buy their newer software?

<<Is there some way around the excel configuration/setup screen so I can continue working in XP with her attachments or has microsoft figured out a way to make be buy their newer software?>>

No...yes.

Microsoft is in the business of selling licenses for use of their products, this is not news. OTOH, Microsoft does not compel any user to use their products, just as any other vendor does not do so.

A visit to the MS Office website may provide you with more alternatives/info.

Hi

I work in a local large PC outlet and recently reset a laptop too factory for a customer who had Office 2010 Home & Student on it, she does not know any login creds nor has the product key but we have proof of purchase from my store - I called one Microsoft number who said it would be possible to sort out and that the customer & I could call another number he supplied, but when we did the person on that end was more sales based and said that it could not be sorted out and that she would have to re-purchase the product!!! I was totally astounded! at the shop I work at we swipe/scan all Microsoft cards/discs so the purchase goes too Microsoft, the 2010 Home & Student discs were purchased 18 months ago.

is there any way for MS too pull up the proof of purchase off our receipt and simply give the lady a new key and download link for H&S 2010?

I cant believe that she was told to purchase it again...if i lost my car keys I wouldn't have to buy a whole new car..its just daft.

thanks

When I purchased my PC in 2007 I also purchased MS Office(3 licenses) & had them install it for me (vs factory installed). Unfortunately I lost the box & need to know the key in order to install it on another PC in the home. MS Office advises to determine the office to call by activating Office yet, when I do click that option I get, of course, Already Activated.
When I look at some the answers to this, it seems incredibly convoluted to get a key when I can prove I am a valid user.
Someone suggested downloading Produkey but I'm reluctant to turn off my

Hey~!

I bought Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 a couple of years ago cheaply for when I started University from Software4Students. Anyway! Today I had to reinstall Windows thinking I had the disk close at hand turns out this was just Communicator and the Office Disk is no where to be found.

I know you can order replacement from Microsoft but this only seems to be in the US. Anything I can do or will it just be forking out for Office 2010 or switching to Open Office?

I was thinking I could possibly Torrent 2007 because I still have the product key written down next to me as surely you're only really paying for the license? Although not sure it works like that?

A:Lost Office 2007 DVD

In principle you're correct. However, for your product key to be valid when installing, wherever you manage to get a replacement copy from, it will have to be exactly the same edition/version of Office as the one you lost, as I believe different editions are issued with different batches of keys.

Hello gidgiddonihah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unless that backup is a system image backup to be able to restore the installation of Windows 7 that had your Office installed in it, then I'm afraid you are out of luck.

Or if you bought it through an affiliated website like Microsoft Office Discount for Students - It's Not Cheating then maybe you could prove your purchase with them (if they keep records of course).
