Office XP reinstall

I bought a used computer that has Windows 98 and Office XP on it.
I would like to scrub it and reload everything as it is kind of messed

The only problem is that I don't have the product key for Office XP.
They gave me the cd's but not the original jewel case for the Office
cd.  Is there any way of pulling the product key out of the application
before I scrub the system?

thanks in advance,

Every time I reboot I need to uninstall and reinstall Accounting Profession for it to work, this seems to have started after installing SQL 2005 Service Pack 2, any ideas why? CW.

I bought a new macbook, well, new to me. Anyhow, it had office installed on it & I have the registration key. I reinstalled the laptop, so I could start fresh without all the previous owners stuff on it. So now I have a trial version of Office 2004. How do I enter in my license key so that I have the full version? I cant find anything anywhere! I see how to BUY IT, but I dont think I should have to do that. Any ideas? Thank you - from a long time PC user, trying to make the switch :)

Forgive me if this question was asked, it's hard to search for the right words. 2 questions: 1. If I install Office 2007 Ultimate and then have to reinstall it (when i finally decide to buy Vista Ultimate in a couple months) will I need to call someone to reconfirm that I own the product key to Office 2007, or is it "good to go" since it was the same computer? 2. I know that Vista can only be used on one computer... but rumor has it that Office 2007 can be installed on "TWO" computers (laptop and desktop of same owner). I haven't seen it written anywhere on the box and I'd like some rock-solid confirmation on that before I install it on another computer of mine. Really appreciate the help. -- "I should have paid attention in computer class..."

I need to reinstall Microsoft Office on another computer, but I lost my product key. There was a phone # to call but it only applied to Office 2003.

Version: 2004 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Email Client: pop Hi, I have recently attempted to upgrade a client's Mac to Office 2008 from 2004 and Entourage in 2008 tells me that it cannot open the database. I then tried to verify/repair/rebuild the database by alt-clicking Entourage, and there is no database to check. I downgraded back to 2004 v11.5 and it works fine. My client has given me a copied CD to install and assures me they have the original in their possession. Do you suppose that has anything to do with the error?

Is there a method to backup the actual programs so if one needs to reformat or change a hard drive a restore rather than a re-installation can be done?

Hi I want to reset up my computer and reinstall everything. I have only had Office 2003 for a short time, is there a way to save the license file so I don't have to phone Microsoft and plead my case to be allowed to continue to use my software. Or is there a way to un license it before I wipe the computer. Macromedia does it this way, you just deactivate it for that computer, it resets how many you have used to macromedia and then you can reinstall it on a new setup. Thanks Michael

quick restored, can't reinstall office 97
0 replies , 3/7/2006, 12:38:27 AM
This weekend, while getting help from a tech about a multi-monitor issue, I was advised to quick restore XP Home. I backed up all files, including program files. The quick restore did not help my original problem, unfortunately. I spent the weekend trying to get things back in order. I reloaded all the backup stuff, including prog files, back to PC. I now understand that loading prog files is a no-no; requires reinstall. Problem(s): 1. Have made several failed attempts to reinstall with the Office 97 install disk (that I have used before); it will not run the SETUP.EXE. or the AUTORUN. For now, with the *backed up* Office program "slid back" into the Prog Files Folder, I am able run the Office components Word, Excel, P-Point. However, I am getting error messages prior to the program opening. "The registry reports damaged or mssing files. Run Word Setup to correct" 2. I understand that the Office install disk is required to uninstall/reinstall, but if I can get the cd to run... Note: MS Office does NOT show up in the ADD/REMOVE program list. So Office is on the PC, but I cannot get it OFF in order to clean reinstall. By the way, I've seen the posts about uninstalling SP2 before renstall. If I don't see SP2 in programs, does that mean it was deleted during restore? I'd sure like some feedback. Thanks in advance

I recently bought a laptop with Windows XP on it. Soon after I bought Office 2003. I want to reinstall Windows XP. What I need to know is if afterwards if I reinstalled Office 2003 would it use up one of my (total of) three installs or would it not? Thank you.

reinstall office after reinstall windows
1 replies , 3/9/2006, 8:31:31 PM
My son's laptop is so messed up with virus, spyware, etc. that I'm thinking about re-installing Windows XP Home. I have my original Office PE 2003 disc and product key. Will that work for the second time? Or should I un-install Office PE 2003 first (and perhaps it is smart enough to inform Microsoft that I have un-installed and will not give me grieve when I re-install.)? Thanks for any help. I'm just trying to figure out the path of least pain.

Office vX Reinstall
0 replies , 8/18/2005, 7:44:01 PM
Sorry, yet another in a long list of reinstall problems. This one does NOT deal with the DEMO/TRIAL versions. -----From Installation Read Me File----- "To upgrade to Microsoft Office X, follow the instructions in section 3, "Installing Microsoft Office X." During installation, the Microsoft Office Setup Assistant asks you to select the folder that contains an upgrade-eligible product (the Microsoft Office 2001 folder, for example). You can select a folder on either your computer or the CD-ROM from which you originally installed the product. After you select the appropriate folder, the assistant upgrades the product and you can finish setting up Office X." -----From Installation Read Me File----- - Following the need to offer the Microsoft Office Setup Assistant proof that I owe an initial version, I have found that it still refuses to accept it. - My current installation (on a clean hard drive/only OSX 10.4.2 installed) is of Office v. X. The v. X install has been updated with 10.1.6 (this is unverified as I can not open the programs). - Office:Mac 2001 Upgrade CD is not accepted - as expected. - Office 98 Macintosh Edition Gold upgrade CD is not accepted - as expected. - Believe my previous versions were floppy oriented. Any thoughts?

Saving Configurations prior to Reinstall
0 replies , 11/13/2003, 10:46:01 AM
Which components of SBS can save their configurations prior to a complete clean re-install, e.g. active directory users & computers, ISA firewall settings, Exchange databases etc. I seem to recall using a tool called LDAP to dump the contents of active directory in order to modify some settings but don't know whether this was just a subset. I've reached the end of my tether and think the only way forward is to wipe the drive and re-install. I don't want to restore system state in case it restores a ***p registry. I'm most concerned about having to set up accounts and profiles again and reconnecting computers to the domain. Any offers?

Stumped on reinstalling
1 replies , 7/28/2008, 5:08:07 AM
Okay, so I purchased Microsoft Office 2007 Student version. As your allowed to install it on 3 computers, I did so on my desktop computer, my husbands computer, and hopefully going to install it on my son's laptop as well. Problem is motherboard and power supply on my 1 year old computer fizzed out on me. Took it to be fixed and I now have to reinstall my Microsoft Office. Is there anyway that I can get around reinstalling it on a computer it was previously on without it counting as the third install?
