KB-928218 No Good - Can't uninstall Office 2007 Trial
2 replies , 11/10/2008, 7:33:02 PM
I had installed the Office Professional 2007 alongside my Office 2002 install (on XP home). When I tried to uninstall the trial through "add/remove programs", I got the msg about "the language of this installation package ...". I tried following KB article 928218, but had the following problems (so far): Step 2.6 - uninstalling .msi files - I could uninstall all the Office 2007 files except the one whose subject is "Microsoft Office Professional 2007"; trying to uninstall this causes the hard drive to run for a few moments, but the msi remains and no error message occurs. I then proceeded through Step 2 -- Office Source Engine was not running Step 3.2 I can delete the "source engine" folder. But not the "Office12" folder. I get an access denied msg for file MSOXMLMF.DLL. Other files are not deleted either. This access denied occurs even after re-boot. At this point I stopped proceeding through 928218's instructions. Any help would be appreciated.

Is there a fix for this?

Visio 2007 Trial Install
2 replies , 3/16/2007, 6:51:03 PM
I downloaded and attempted to install the trial version of Visio 2007 with no prior installations of the product present on my system (including uninstalled versions). I am currently running Office 2003 for all other Office applications. Upon selecting Start/Run and then selecting the trial version X12-30351.exe file, the program presents the screen request verifying you would like to run the program. I select "Run" and the program provides the "extracting files...." screen, which disappears once complete. The desktop re-appears as of the original display prior to running the program and nothing else occurs. Within 30 seconds to a minute the whole system locks up requiring a hard reboot (via the power button) to restore the system. All unnecessary programs including CA Etrust virus scan were deactivated during the install attempts. I deleted and downloaded the program a second time thinking that the original download was corrupted with no success. The MS Knowledgebase has no reference to this problem and email support requires a PID, which I do not posses since the product did not install. I have also completed a thorough review of all programs and services running on the system to ensure nothing was in error. Any suggestions or information is appreciated. MS Tex

Using power point free trial

When I take the time to download the free trial it never gives me the power point one. can anyone help me out here?

I have a laptop running on Windows XP Home Edition, 5.1.2600 SP2, Build 2600 (if that matters), and encountered problems with office software after installing recent windows updates, so I unistalled all the 2003 office trial software. Since I unistalled the preinstalled trial 2003 office, how do I convert to the full blown edition if it tells me I need to convert through the trial software which I don't have any cd's to reinstall??

Count down on office trial

I REALLY would have appreciated a count down to expiration on the 90 day trial that came with me new computer. Getting shut out at midnight on the last day with no advance warning is frustrating. I own a full version of Office XP, but now am strugling to figure out how to move my Outlook data from the trial version of Office 2003 that just shut down. If I had a week to decide, I could have made a concious decision. I feel like I'm being held hostage this way. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes.

I installed the trial and was happily using it, but had a problem with integrating it with another app (Maximizer). So I uninstalled it, but I had lost the original trial activation key. I tried to use a new activation key but it indicated that the trial was expired. I understand from other posts that the original activation key is required. Is there any way around this?

Disappointed in trial
3 replies , 6/5/2009, 12:21:01 PM
I downloaded the trial of Microsoft Office specifically because I needed to use Excel for a work activity and the computer I was on did not contain the software. Boy was I in a panic when I realized that the trial doesn't let you DO anything on Excel. This is NOT the way to sell a product. If I was thinking about buying this based on my experience with the trail - they just lost my business. I am not spending that kind of money on something that I just get to look at and not use first. That would be like buying a car before driving it or a house before taking a tour. NO SALE HERE.

need trial version to reinstall upgrade...
8 replies , 9/4/2007, 4:52:04 PM
Hi All, I am trying to recover my wife's laptop for her. We needed to install a new hard drive as the old was hit by a power surge and is unreadable. The laptop came with MD office 2003 trial installed from HP. We went out and bought the upgrade to the office SBE 2003 and installed it. But once the drive went bad, I cannot install this upgrade unless I have an existing office product to install over. I can't seem to find a place to download the trial version of office 2003. How can I work around this? I have the box and discs for the upgrade, so my code will be fine. I thought that during the upgrade install, I could choose the phone registration option and get the software unregistered from my old drive and registered to the new drive. But I can't get that far in the process without the trial version... Help! and Thanks! Brian

Office standard key for home student trial?
2 replies , 3/16/2010, 2:01:01 AM
We recently purchased a netbook, and we would like to put our Office standard 2007 on it. The salesman told us we could just input the product key and it would unlock it on the netbook. Unfortunately our program is Office standard and the trial is for Office Home and Student. Since Standard has more than Home and Student I would think it would unlock it but it isnt. Any suggestions? We just bought office and we don't want to buy another one. Since the netbook doesn't have a CD drive how can we install Office without buying it again.

I uninstalled the 2003 trial due to office applications running very slow after installing recent office updates. (Running Office XP SP2) Now I want to convert/upgrade to the full edition, however the procedure to convert the trial requires going into the applications, or installing the trial cd which I don't have b/c my laptop had the trial preinstalled at purchase. Is it possible for me to purchase an upgrade and install it successfully without accessing the trial version at all or will there be glitches? I DO have the trial key # on the back of a MS Works CD case that came with the computer.

I have just gotten everything like I want it... settings, email accounts in Outlook, autocorrect entries in my normal.dotx and normalemail.dotx, etc. I REALLY do not want to have to uninstall the trial and reinstall from the box.

Unable to get my Office Trial to work
1 replies , 5/17/2008, 1:37:02 PM
Having just downloaded the Office Home and Student Trial I cannot get it to work. After typing in the product key and installing it, when I open up Word for example, it tells me that the trial has expired. I have tried re-activating it using -Word Options-Resources-Activate but when I do this I get the same message telling me the trial has expired. I have never had this problem before when downloading a trial. Can anybody help?

I've been using Office 2004 for a long time. It's always done what I've needed and there was never any pressing need to update to 2008. However, since upgrading to Snow Leopard, iCal is reading all of Entourage's events as 5 hours ahead of schedule. After 3 weeks of back-and-forth support from both Apple AND Microsoft and many different tries at a solution, my latest Apple Support person says that there will NEVER be a solution to this problem due to new components/settings in iCal and the ONLY SOLUTION is to update to Office 2008. In case you're interested in the full story, here are at least 3 Apple Discussion Forum threads with people having the same issue with Office 2004: <a href=" messageID=10280997&stqc=true">Cal times ahead 5 hours from Entourage</ a> <a href=" messageID=10281136&stqc=true">Entourage Sync Trouble</a> <a href=" messageID=10281138&stqc=true">iCal-Entourage sync problem with time zones</a> In any case, I'll probably be downloading the Trial Version of MS Office 2008 Home & Student Edition to use until I break down and buy it through Amazon. I seem to recall discussions when 2008 launched about running 2004 & 2008 side-by-side with some exceptions. What were these exceptions? What do I need to be cautious about when running 2004 & 2008? Was Entourage the sticky-point? If I try 2008, is there any going back or am I stuck forever? Any suggestions for me as I prepare to do this? I am thinking of using the trial version for a short period of time. This would allow me to familiarize myself with the product and then order through Amazon. I'm really needing to do something soon--I've had MobileMe syncing turned off since the end of August while trying to work through the Time Zone issue. It didn't do me much good to sync when everything showed up on my iPhone as 5 hours ahead. Any advice or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. By the way, I have a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook with 4 GB memory--running Snow Leopard 10.6.1. I don't need Exchange--Just need to sync my Entourage calendar (Yahoo Mail & MobileMe mail account) and contacts.
