Office XP Pro product code

Q: Office XP Pro product code

I recently bought a new computer and I want to install the office xp pro disc that I already have. However, I cannot seem to put my hands on the case it cam in. I need to have the product key to install it. Is there a way to find the product key on the computer where it is currently installed? Thanks for any info.

Preferred Solution: Office XP Pro product code

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.)

Hello and welcome.

Yes there is.

Hi, I bought my computer in April 2012 and never activated my preinstalled MS Office ; I guess I didn't need to at the time.  I now need to activate it, and can't find my product code; I'm not even sure it came with the computer, because I don't have it anywhere, and I saved EVERYTHING from when I bought it except the packaging.

The Bundled Office 365 subscription that came with my HP Pavilion has an issue. Microsoft's activation web site says it is invalid. Chatted with the Microsoft tech he said it is a good product code but HP needs to say that I have purchased it. Chatted with an HP tech he had me download and install the Office 365 free trail. He said when that expires I should then enter the product code. This doesn't sound correct to me and doesn't help me download it on to my other computers as stated on the subscription card. It says this is good for up to 5 PC. I have registered this new machine so it should be activated. HP needs to fix the issue.

This Notebook came with Office 365 One Year Home Subscription as part of the bundle. The Subscription is for up to 5 PC for one year. I registered this notebook and I repeatedly tried to activate this on the Microsoft site following the instruction on the subscription card. The automated site said it was an invalid number. I made absolutely sure the product code was entered correctly. I contact a MS tech by chat and he verified it was a good product code but it was set up to be activated by HP. The MS tech suggested I contact HP which I did by Chat.
Here is the case number 3029147850.  Anand Kumar from HP Chat Support team had me download the free office 365 trail on the notebook. He claims that at the end of the one month trail I'll be able to activate the one year subscription with teh product code. I'm not sure this will work and it leaves me unable to download Office 365 on my other 3 computers because they have an olde version of Office and all they want to do is an upgrade.
So what is going on here how am I to be able to download and activate Office 365 properly?

I currently have Win 7 Pro retail 64 bit installed on my system. I ordered a second copy of Win 7 Pro retail to install as a second instance on my system, then later deactivate that second instance of Win 7 and then install it on a new computer if and when
I buy a new computer. Unfortunately, what I received shows an OEM sticker inside what looks like a retail box.
If I change the current retail product key on my current installation of Win 7 Pro with the OEM product code, is the original retail code disabled or just deactivated? Will I be able to use the original retail product key on a future installation? I have
a few days to return the mislabeled Win 7 Pro OEM version, and then look to buy a Win 7 Pro retail version (a few of these left).
Note my current system is one I assembled myself from components I bought from various stores (motherboard, processor, video card, sound card, disk drives, case, fans, ... ).

Following a hard drive crash, I tried to reinstall Windows XP. While the original sticker was tossed out by an ex-girl friend, I had extracted the product code from the hard dive some time back. The booklet I wrote it in was damaged and I can't read the entire 25 characters. Is there a way to extract the code from the original disk? I do have the original installation disk.
Thanks for any help.

Long story - short version: Bought on E Bay two win 7 pro plus disks with product codes. Loaded onto new rebuilds. Had to have emergency surgery before I completed the load with product code. Code now expired. Is there some way I can get NEW codes without having to buy the win 7 disk or programs.

A:product code

A 25-character product key for a Windows 7 disc does not expire.
What expires is the number of days you can use Windows 7 without activating it.
If you bought those 2 discs on eBay for a very cheap price, they are likely non-genuine/pirated copies.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
Several years ago I installed Microsoft Office XP.
At the time of installation I was asked to type in the Key Code which consisted of 25characters.
This "Key Code" was on the box the software came in.
I put the software CD in a jewel case.
Unfortunetely a few years ago I suffered a house fire that just about destroyed everything from water damage and the software box got water logged and ruined.
I now have no way of knowing what the "Key Code" for the software is so I can reinstall it on another computer.

My question is... was there any place this Key Code was stored in the hard drive during installation ??
I have been going out of my "trees" trying to figure it out.
If one of you "Pro's" can help it will be very much appreciated.
The full program is Microsoft Office XP.
Thank you for your time.

I purchased a used computer and was given what appears to be a genuine microsoft windows 7 disc. They did not give me the package it came in with the registration code. Windows loaded fine and works fine but says I have 15 days to registra. I am getting different answers from different people and the more people I ask (including the computer shop) the more confused I get. Most are saying that I will have to repurchase a new windows 7 with validation code. Some say I can contact Microsoft and at a smaller fee, get the validation code. One person told me that the validation code is located, deep inside the disc and told me how to retrive it. Bassically, turn computer on, go to my computer, insert windows 7 disc, go to explore, click on sources, and locate product. Which I did. And it does show not one but about 20 validation codes, several for windows home, some for windows home preminum, (which I have) and windows professional. I have entered a couple of the codes but it ways "wrong registration #" I havent run through the full list yet. Will one of these numbers really be the validation code. Sone else told me that there are no validation codes in the disc and that disc can be used on mutiple commputers but would have to purchase a registration code for each computer. I clicked on some web site and they say for a fee they will locate my validation code deep in ecryption on my C: drive (question, if it is not really on the disc, then how would they find it...

Some say I can contact Microsoft and at a smaller fee, get the validation code.This is my recommendation.One person told me that the validation code is located, deep inside the disc and told me how to retrieve it. Basically, turn computer on, go to my computer, insert windows 7 disc, go to explore, click on sources, and locate product.I've never heard of this method, so I cannot comment on this.Someone else told me that there are no validation codes in the disc and that disc can be used on multiple computers but would have to purchase a registration code for each computer.Correct. You can use the same disc to install the OS, but you'd need a different product key for each machine.I clicked on some web site and they say for a fee they will locate my validation code deep in encryption on my C: drive (question, if it is not really on the disc, then how would they find it on my c: drive) I was reluctant to pay them any money.Sounds sketchy. I'd stay away.

A:Product Code

In another post, Mulderator says "as long as you have your original CD and product code" referring to re-installing XP. I have years of experience with 98 and ME, but all this online validation stuff is new to me and has me confused.

I bought several refurbished machines each with a new copy of XP pre-installed. Not much in the way of restore, rescue, or re-install disks though. So I bought a new Windows Home XP CD.

So now I have several machines, each with a shiny new "Certificate of Authenticity" sticker on the back, with what I would call the COA number on it. And I received another COA sticker with my new XP CD.

Is this COA number what is meant by "product code"?

More specifically, can I use the new XP CD to re-install XP on a misbehaving refurbished machine. Does the COA on the back of the machine identify the OS installed on the machine, and as such I should be able to use my new XP CD to re-install XP on the other machines (each has its own paid-for COA sticker)?

I have paid Microsoft many times for XP, I am not trying to bootleg anything here.

A:Product code?

From my experience, if the COA includes a valid XP product key (a 25-character string in five sets of five), you SHOULD be able to install XP from any CD and just use that key when prompted for it. The only limitation is that the key has to be for the same version of XP (home/pro/MCE) that you're installing; in other words, an XP Home key won't work if you're installing from an XP Pro CD.

The other thing you have to watch for is that MS will only let you Activate with a particular key a set number of times, after which you need to call MS and have them reset the activation for that key.

2 years ago (August 2010), I had a desktop tower computer, which I installed Windows 7 onto. It worked fine for a bit... then died. I never had a chance to uninstall Windows 7, because the 4 year old machine just spazzed out and died. Today, I found the install disk for Windows 7. I decided to install it onto an old laptop I had (A Lenovo 3000 n200), but the problem was that I could not find the product code. It was the same code used to install Win 7 onto to old desktop, now dumped, and to my surprise, it worked.
Now for my question.
Did this happen because Microsoft did something about the product code because the computer it was on died, or did it happen because I was lucky? And if I was lucky, can I call Microsoft and tell them what happened in order to make my laptop's Win 7 truly legit?


A:Possible product code glitch.

If it's a retail version of Windows 7, it's legit.

There is no explicit deactivation. I suppose that the activation server resets in time, just as for Windows XP. If it hadn't reset, telephone activation would have been required.

Hello, I am trying to sell an old HP desktop I have lying around on Amazon. But in order for me to post it on Amazon, I need to create a new listing, since nobody else is selling it. To create a new listing, I need a unique product code for the desktop computer. I'm looking to get the Universal Product Code (UPC). A UPC is the barcode that would be scanned at the point of sale when someone buys something. I have a few other computers I'm trying to sell, and on Toshiba's website the very first manual that I open for a laptop shows me the UPC. HP's manuals don't. I've tried calling customer service. And both times I either got hung up on or disconnected. It's very frustrating because I have a very basic question, and to no avail have I gotten an answer yet. If anybody can find the UPC for the HP Pavilion a6230n, and tell me how to get UPCs for HP products in the future, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

EDIT Thanks Kari

As far as I know, with one key you can activate either 32-bit or 64-bit Seven. I mean, a normal retail pack comes with both disks but only one key. it's then up yo customer to decide which version to install and activate with that key.

HP did not ship anything with the laptop other than how to turn it on.  So after setting back to factory I needed to enter in the windows product code and guess what I dont have it cause everything was preloaded.  So i call support which is first impossible to find a number for and once i connect they say sorry we dont store product codes. So my only option now is to buy a recovery disk that was never provided in the first place. So frustrating............... I hope they have stopped this nonsense of not shipping product codes for their products........

A:Windows Product code not given
