An upgrade version of Office is going to be no good to you if you don't have
the 2000 CD as the set-up routine will request it as part of the
installation process.

Demo key question
5 replies , 10/17/2005, 5:10:02 AM
Hi I have Student Edition 2003 installed on my computer and it says I can install it on up to 3 computers. I have just been given an old laptop but I'm not sure how stable it is or if it will last. I don't want to waste one of my 2 remaining installs on a laptop I might not be able to use. (technically it should be good enough for 2003) If I were to install the demo version of 2003, would it later accept my product key and let me continue using it? Or can the demo only be converted by a brand new product key? It would really help if I could test it this way for a lttle while before I commit to having it on permanantely thanks

Someone helped me and installed Microsoft office ultimate 2007 on my computer. After a while office signalled that this version was not genuine. I was directed to the microsoft homepage. I bought a new version of office ultimate 2007 so that it would be genuine. I got a product key Now my question: Can I change the product key without re-installing the office software? I have many office files on my computer and I do not want them to dissapear. I would also prefer not to re-install the software as it takes time and will probably add a lot of file fragments on my computer.

Home use program license key
5 replies , 8/2/2008, 1:21:00 PM
I'm in the military, Navy active duty. I'm aware that we qualify for the Home Use Program through our Volume Licensing. I've not been able to find the specific resource I need to obtain this software. If anyone has any real information that would be great. Microsoft's help center says "Contact your agencys software licensing manager" and other vague hints. If I worked in say and office of 30 people I could get my mind around that. But to say "Contact the Navy's software licensing manager" doesn't help us front line guys. We need a real answer with a real resource. Any help would be wonderful, I wouldn't be posting here if I hadn't already run the route of my Chain of Command and several weeks of searching the net / navy admins.
