Preferred Solution: Need Valid Product Key for MS Office 2010 Suite

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.)


I purchased MS Office Suite Home and Student 2010 without the Outlook component.

3 months later thru a promotion at work I was offered MS Office Suite Professional 2010 which I took advantage of to get the Outlook.

Problem is that the Home and Student was downloaded and installed and working fine in a 64bit and the product from work was 32bit. Not compatible.

I want to uninstall the 64 and install the 32bit so that I can have the Outlook program but I want to do so as CLEANLY as possible.

Can anyone help me go thru the steps?

A:MS Office suite 2010

Welcome to WSF.

Office 2010 64-bit will uninstall quite happily via Control Panel>Uninstall Programs, but you might want to use a third-party uninstaller such as Revo, which will scan the registry for remnants and leftover files.

Make sure you reboot after you've uninstalled the 64-bit version, and then install your 32-bit version.

Hello all! I searched and couldn't find the answer to the following question.

I have Office 2010 - two licenses at that, and want to remove the Office 2010 Suite from one computer and out it on another. Do I just go in and set it up on the new/replacement computer and at the point of activation when I try and activate the license it will tell me that I can't and that I need to call Microsoft...is this what is going to happen, or can I "deactivate" the license on the computer that is going to be dead soon??

Any help is appreciated!

A:Migrate Office 2010 Suite from Old Computer to New One

First issue, if this is an "OEM" version, such as what is on new PC's, the it is only legally licensed for the PC it was delivered with and you would need a new copy of Office (to be legal). Microsoft (Usually) will not reactivate an OEM licensed version on a different PC.

If this is a "Retail" copy of Office you should be able to install it and call Microsoft and get it deactivated from the old PC and activated in the new PC.

This came already preloaded on my Netbook; it's actually Microsoft Office "STARTER" 2010 (and I don't need more for this Netbook), but I need a product key, which I have to buy. I didn't know this and was going to install my current, 3pc limit Microsoft Office 2007 on the Netbook. I don't want to install this in my netbook as that would be two programs, right? And to just make things easier, would it be best to just buy a product key for 2010 for my Netbook?

I'm not sure what "starter" is, although if I click on Purchase it takes me to a one-user Home and Student 2010 edition.

My current desktop computer has Microsoft Office 2007 home and Student edition. Can this be upgraded by the same product key code if I were to buy the whole product (with disc) for it's key code for my Netbook? I know if I just buy the product key code it's only good for one computer and it seems like that would be a waste of money. It's $109!

So can I or should I upgrade my desktop computer to match the Netbook's version of Microsoft Office and use the same key code for both? I'm not sure that can be done. Or perhaps I should leave well enough alone and simply buy the product key code for my Netbook which is preloaded with Microsoft Office Starter 2010 Suite.

Any advice? I don't need "issues".

Hi regulatorFix, welcome to the community,
The product license key would have been in the box or alternatively did you perhaps create a microsoft account in which case the key will be stored and retrievable through your microsoft account.

A:need help - product key for M-Office 2010

Looks like you are installing just SP1 update, rather than full version of Office.

In the same email with the product key there should be full links to download your full version of Office or at least customer service number.

Every Office key has a specific version for it, you can not download just any version of Office (example: keys for PRO PLUS are not going to work with Home edition etc).

I currently use Windows Live Mail.
I was looking at "Office Home and Student 2010" and "Office Home and Business 2010" (1 user license).
Business has Outlook, where as Student doesn't.
Is Outlook "better" in any way than WLM?

A:Outlook 2010 vs. Windows Live Mail (Office suite)

Outlook is a paid program so it will have more functionality than WLM, but they will both have their ups and downs. Either you use free WML or pay for Outlook.

Windows Live Mail is free software which lacks the full functionality of Outlook. If you want to have something for free, use Live Mail. If you want something professional that will integrate your calendar, contacts, and email, use Outlook. Additionally, Outlook can connect to Microsoft Exchange Server, which should be considered if you are in a business environment.

As far as migration benefits, Outlook is far superior than Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express. Outlook stores all of your emails and data in a Microsoft Personal File Folder (PST File) which can be simply copied from your old computer to new computer if you ever buy a new system. Windows Live Mail is much more complicated and difficult to migrate.

from Should I be using Windows Live Mail or Outlook? - Super User

I would research the functions of both and see which one you prefer.

I had Office 2003 installed on my laptop and when Outlook stopped working, I decided to remove 2003 and install Office Professional 2010. I followed all the instructions. I bought 2010 a while back and installed it on my desktop computer where it works fine. The box says that I can use it on up to 3 computers at home. I installed 2010 but I still could not open Outlook. After reading about a regedit fix on this forum, I tried it and it then opened fine (thank you Captain Sparrow!) Great, I thought.

However, whenever I open any application in Office, I get told that I have to activate the product. It then tells me that my product key is invalid. How is this when I had to put in the product key at the beginning when I installed it? Surely if it was invalid it would have told me when I first installed. I have checked that there are no other versions of Office installed and I can't see any on the Install/Uninstall programme. Maybe there is something still there that I don't recognise. There is a whole load of Microsoft Visual C stuff there. And another one is called Microsoft Office File Validation Add In which has been there since August 2014. I removed Microsoft Silverlight and Microsoft Works.

I am at the stage where I want to throw the whole damn thing out of the window. Someone PLEASE help me!!!

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.

Snadge, I do not believe it is possible to retrieve the product key from a restored system. If it was an original installed demo version of office then they evidently purchased the key while on-line. They should be able to go to the store and retrieve their key. Otherwise your out of luck.

Welcome Madamfrosan to the windows 7 forums.

The Key that is on your computer is the key for your windows version Not for office 2010. That key is only available from Microsoft. You can buy a key either on-line from microsoft or most large computer stores will see you the carton that has the key inside of it.

A:recovering office 2010 product key

Hello disturbed13 and welcome to the forums

This should be relatively simple

The Office 2010 product key is stored in the Software registry hive, however it is in an encoded format and we'll need a tool to decipher it.

I would like you to boot into Linux and open the file manager. Navigate to the following folder on your Windows hard drive:


You should see a few files in here, the ones without extensions are your registry hives. Copy and paste the file "software" (there is no file extension) to a a USB flash drive so we can access it from another computer.

For the next part, you'll need access to a Windows computer.

Now I would like you to download ProduKey (by Nirsoft):

ProduKey - Recover lost product key (CD-Key) of Windows/MS-Office/SQL Server

Direct download link for 32 bit computers: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/produkey.zip
Direct download link for 64 bit computers: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/produkey-x64.zip

All of your product keys should now be displayed If you right click on them, you should be able to copy them directly.

I installed Office 2010 today from genuine disks that had a product key on one of the sleeves; however, it didn't ask for a product key as they ran and reran and reran it the rest of the day.

I'm sure that at some point they will have to use that key; but, I would like to know: What's up with that?

A:Office 2010 didn't ask for a product key on installation -- why?

More information: This was a copy of Microsoft Office donated by Microsoft to a non-profit organization and supposedly had a six-user license. They have been using this on several computers for several days now and there has still been no pop-up asking for a product key.

Surely someone here has installed Office 2010 besides me. What is your experience? What is your take on this?

This is a legit disk. Why is no product key being asked for?

Ok so I'm planning on re-installing Windows, which means I need to download Office 2010 again. However, I simply can't find the correct email that Office is tied to. I've tried the only 4 emails of mine it could possibly be tied to to no avail. The computer/Office were a gift from my parents for graduation, but their work/home emails don't have an account tied to them. So I'm at a loss.

I ran into this problem before, trying to switch from click to run to MSI. However, I was able to work around it by, I think, downloading the 30 day trial or whatever, and activating from there. However, I can't seem to find a 2010 trial anymore. A Google search for it takes me to where it would be, but then I click on "try it now" (as seen here Try Office 2010 - Microsoft Office) (Home and Student version, if it matters), and it redirects me to the new 2013 version, which obviously isn't what I want.

Any thoughts on how to work around this? I could always try customer service, I guess, but if there's some alternate source to get the trial from that would be great. Thanks.

Edit: Also, I really want it to be the MSI version, not click to run, so I think that would affect what to download. Thanks again.

Office 2010 Home and Business no longer works after installing Norton 360. The title bar of any Office application shows Unlicensed product and a pop-up displays indicating that the license cannot be verified and I should repair the Office program via Control Panel.

I have repaired Office several times. I have also removed it completely and installed it again, to no avail. I tried to remove Office with Fix It 50450, but that program could not be executed due to an unexpected error during the installation of the package; there may be an error with the package, error code 2738.

I have been in contact with the Norton helpdesk and they have checked my system remotely. According to them the problem has nothing to do with Norton. The history showed no signs of Norton blocking anything.

Going back to a restore point is not possible, because with the installation of Norton all previous restore points were apparently deleted.

I downloaded and ran the trial version of Office 2010 Professional Academic version.

When I go into any of the programs (Excel, Word, etc) and check to see if Office 2010 is authenticated (File > Help) I see displayed "Trial Product" and it says my trial period will expire in 26 days. Below that it reads "Product Activated." In other words, according to the almighty wisdom and omniscience of Microsoft I have BOTH an unactivated trial version and an authenticated version of their product. I would have thought that once I activated the product it would no longer say I have a trial version. Should the "Trial Product" bit still show there? If not how do I get rid of it? Thanks in advance for any comments, advice, etc.

I have a copy of Office 2010 Home and student that came with my computer. It worked well until I tried to install Microsoft Outlook. Now, every time I try to start Outlook, it makes me re-enter my product key. Why is this?
I have tried running office as an administrator, which was a solution I found when I googled my problem, but it still does not work. What is going on here?

Office versions that come preinstalled are trial versions with the exception of Office 2010 starter which is a different animal. You can check your activation status this way:

Also, how did you install Outlook, outlook is not included in the home & student version. So its possible what you have now is standard or pro edition and thats why its asking for a key.

Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.

Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.

All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.

I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.

Any suggestions? This is becoming extremely inefficient.

A:compatibility of "open office" suite and Microsoft Office Suite?

Hello alpad,

When she saves the document to send to the professor, which format is she saving it in? If she saves it as the default .odt, Word won't be able to open it. In the small window by "Save as Type" she needs to click the arrow to cause the drop down menu to come up, then select the proper Word version to save it as. My version of Open Office has the following MS Word options:

MS Word 97/2000/XP (.doc)
MS Word 95 (.doc)
MS Word 6.0 (.doc)

There is also an XML version. The latest version of Open Office, version 3, is also compatible with MS Word 2007; however, I don't know how that appears in the drop down menu as I don't yet have that version of Open Office.

Once she has chosen the proper Word format, then she needs to save the document. This is the version she should submit to the professor.

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it?

I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

A:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

Hello all, the entire Office 2003 suite one day looks old like 2000 or Windows 2000 icons in general.

Does anyone know why this happened and how it could be fixed?


A:Entire Office 2003 suite looks like Office 2000

This had happened to me once but in office 2007. It happened when I tried to open an older file type so It went into compatibility mode, which also changes the layout.

Not sure if its the same thing with office 2003 but go into options, advanced, and see if you can find something like compatibility options or layout.

Anyway if its not their your looking for some kind of option like that so snoop around all the options, views, and windows menus.

Is this XP Home or XP Professional? Which Service Pack?

I may not be able to help. I suspect a Microsoft rep can. He would probably ask the same questions as I did.

A while back I moved my Gateway machine from Vista Home Premium x32 to Win 7 Home Premium x64.
The Win 7 OS was purchased from a well known software distribution outlet to save money, and was a Dell OEM x64 bit version.
The clean install went Ok, but the product key included with the disc would not validate. I called the vendor and they provided a new product key, which did validate.
About seven months went by with no problems, then after the second to last MS update, I received an error after booting stating my copy of windows was not valid.

Again I contacted the vender, and they supplied a third product key, but told me I might have to validate by phone. This didn't work, the third key they had given me was an invalid key as well!
I ended up with MS tech support and after forty five minutes later and granting them control of my PC, the tech provided a working product key, but was reluctant to give me the key!
If I call the vender, I'm sure they will supply another key, but now I'm using a MS supplied key that I don't have access to. What do I do now?
Thanks for any advice!

A:Product Key Not Valid

Download and install Belarc. It carries out a full audit of your system and displays the results in a web page format.

The information should also include the product keys and serial numbers for any software you have installed.

At least now Microsoft can't refuse to validate an operating system that THEY provided the product key for.

I have read some threads about people buying Windows 7 product keys on ebay and they are prob no good. I bought 2 product keys for Windows Ultimate 7, but didn't buy them off ebay. But how can I find out if my keys are good keys? After I bought the keys I was given a link to what I think was msdn site to choose my language, and my product That I bought the keys for and I used easymule to download the Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit iso.Before I go through the trouble of formatting my drive and installing Windows Ultimate 7 I was wondering how to tell if these keys are valid and make Windows 7 Ultimate a good copy and get updates. But I dont want to post the keys here if they are good because I paid for them to use and dont want someone to use them before I could activate them.Bryant

A:How to know if My product key is a valid key

If you bought only the keys without Windows 7 media there's a good chance they were illegally sold to you. The only way to know if the keys work is to install Windows 7 and try activating it. Also, be careful when downloading pirated copies of Windows (emule) as many contain viruses, malware, trogans, keyloggers, etc. Windows - Is It Genuine http://www.microsoft.com/genuine Microsoft - Piracy http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/default.aspx

My brother in law gave my dad his old PC with a legitimate version of Windows XP Home on it. However, when I tried to download Windows Defender for my dad, WGA said it was not a valid product key.

Unfortunately, I did not have time to investigate why the key was not valid or try rectifying it, but I wondered if he should not go online until I or my brother in law get chance to sort out the problem.

I have looked on the microsoft and MGA websites to see if this is a problem and they state that if the product key is not valid then you will not be able to download certain software and updates, however critical updates can still be downloaded. They also state that when going through the validating process no details of name, address or email address are taken.

I was concerned though, because I had heard that if you run what microsoft deems a non valid version of XP then your operating system can be blocked. I looked on this forum and one person said it is not a problem as he has been using the same product key on three PC's (therefore not valid) for years and has never had a problem. Someone else on this forum said that you can get blocked with a non valid key, but it may be within 2 weeks, a month or even after a year.

Does it depend on the reason why your product key is not valid whether you become blocked? (For example, blocked VLK or keygen created as opposed to multiple users.)

A:Non Valid Xp Product Key

Go to this site and run the diagnostic tool to find out what's going on with that key.http://www.ghacks.net/2006/06/10/find-out-...id-product-key/If you know this copy of XP is not legit your beating a dead horse asking for advice.

I have a Acer Aspire T620 desktop PC, recently I had to reinstall XP Pro (which came with the computer when I brought it) as it was hit by the \windows\system32\config\system... missing or corrupt problem.

I have lost my Acer recovery CD, luckily I have my MSDN subscription DVDs so I have a copy of Win XP Pro. I began re-installing when I was asked to enter my product key. I have a COA sticker on my computer?s case, however after entering the key XP reports the product key as invalid! I had brought my computer from an authorized Acer reseller and the COA looks authentic! I have restored my computer I few times using the recovery CD but using the recovery CD I don?t think I was required to enter the product key.

Can anyone tell me is it possible to restore my PC without the original recovery CD? I thought you can use any XP Pro CD to install as long as the product key is valid? Also, why is my product key not valid? If it is not valid then what key was I using before? As I brought a new hard drive to install Windows XP, my original hard drive with the corrupted Windows XP still works, is it possible to retrieve the original product key and use that key again?
