Preferred Solution: Office 2007 Product Key Failure

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.)

The only location for that code would be on a card that shipped with the system - if you have lost that, you're essentially out of luck and will need to purchase a new license.

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 am in the middle of a project and my coworker is sending me excel spreadsheets created from MSOffice Home and Student 2007 package. She saves it in older .xls formats but no matter what, I am being asked for the 25 character Product Key to configure-setup MSOffice 2007 on my computer. 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?>>


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.

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.

Will I be able to install from my Office home and student 2007 CD and use their Office Enterprise product key?

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.

Just bought a new computer and prematurely entered my Office 2007 product code on the preinstalled trail version included. Now I plan on returning the computer (long story), does this mean I will now lose 1 of the 3 allowable installs of Office '07? I plan on deleting everything before the return, so maybe that will retain my 3 user licenses?

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 have a system with windows 2003 server and several windows XP and Windows 7 clients. I have created GPOs to install required softwares on clients. Sometimes I directly access the deploy directory and install the software manually. So I had added all workstations to office 2007 GPO. All windows 7 and most XP workstation got installed with Office 2007 without any problem. but there are couple of windows XP desktop that do not have office 2007 yet. when the PC starts, the installation begins and it just disappears without an error. I tried to install manually from the deploy directory, same result. the installation begins and disappears. Though we have a policy to install softwares only through GPO, I copied the installation folder locally and tried to install that way. Same result.
I checked the event viewer on clients and there is this event:

I have made several attempts to install Microsoft Office 2007.
Initially it accepts the license code and then offers to upgrade my 2003 version- then shows the installation splash screen- but shows no progress bar activity- eventually after some minutes it gives an error:
Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 encountered an error during setup.
No other info is offered. Same result after a fresh re-boot.
So I tried to uninstall my 2003 version first- it failed to uninstall- using the 'remove' function under control panel, giving a similar error message- so my Windows Installer is possibly corrupt- what to do ???

I have two Office 2007 updates already downloaded in Windows XP that constantly fail to install. The updates are both "Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System" KB969613 and KB973704.

I have followed steps to delete downloaded update files as follows:
1) Stop Automatic Updates service (services.msc)
2) Browse to %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete all files (incl. hidden)

Unfortunately, even after I do that, these updates appear to still be downloaded and waiting to be installed. Even if I tell Update "Don't show me these updates again" and then restore those updates, they are STILL already downloaded. The error I get is simply "The following updates were not installed."

What directory are Office updates downloaded to? I'm tired of the yellow shield constantly telling me that updates are ready!

Thanks in advance.

I'm having trouble installing my authentic copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate. I use Windows Vista Business, and everything else runs ok. The install fails approximately 20% into the process, and shows the message:

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

I recently purchased a HP 530 laptop for our soccer club that came pre installed with Vista. During use of outlook, Excel etc it came up with a message asking for activation key & that we had 20 uses left to enter it (I presumed this was a trial version & activation code to be purchased). After 5-10 uses I decided to install Office 97 which I still had lying around from an old PC. This installed OK but the message was still appearing.

I then uninstalled Office 97 via add/remove programs & then did likewise for anything that mentioned office 2007 (I didn't do the actual uninstalling but am advised there were 4-6 office 2007 variants uninstalled). I then went to load office 97 back in but no go. It goes through the usual install process, enter key, select location to load (prog files/microsoft office) & then select type of install required (typical) & then the features (have selected all & just the basic office install).

Then it goes to the actual install process but just sits there with the bluey/green coloured screen with Microsoft Office 97 written at the top but goes no further.

I have checked add remove programs again & no mentions of office are listed.

I have followed the following fix I was advised about -

By default, Office is installed to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, go to that folder. Delete the E... Read more

A:Hp Laptop, Vista, Unable To Load Office 97 After Removing Office 2007 Trial Version.

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933305That being said, lot's of people on the web have gotten it to work with varying degrees of success.Ensure that you install the application in compatibility mode - both as "Run as Windows 98" and "Run as Administrator"Don't install Service Pack 2 - it has problems. But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

I am running a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate that I got through an academic program. I need to install a key for Office 2010 on a new system. The cost for the key only is about $20 less than a 3 license traditional disk version, so I am considering upgrading every system.

However, I don't want to lose MS Access or MS Publisher to upgrade.

If I install Office 2010 Home & Student over Office 2007 Ultimate, will the extra programs from Office 2007 still be available to me? I know they will not be upgraded, but having a few different versions floating around doesn't bother me.

No... those two programs are not available in the student version...

Hello - I own multi-user version of Microsoft Office 2007 Pro and in May 2012 purchased a new ASUS A54C-TS91 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and Office 2010 Starter Edition. I need Powerpoint and Outlook in addition to Excel and WORD. I tried to install the entire app. assuming certain "limited" components of 2010 would be overwritten with the "better"/more robust 2007 - however, while it appears Office 2007 Pro loaded properly and is shown in Control Panel with proper date as installed, there is no file size listed...... I have read several similar posts but wanted to provide specific details for my situation. Anyone have a similar issue - what is best solution? (i am a newbie to the group, so hope I didn't make a faux pas in relating my story). Any guidance is welcomed and appreciated. Minky

So this is odd. I have a user who is using office 2003, when she forwards an email to anyone using office 2007 the body of her forward is lost. However, if the email is opened via office 2003, webmail, or via a Smartphone the forwards are there. Iíve reinstalled office on computer A (the one with office 2003) but this didnít remedy the situation. Any ideas?
