Office 2007 Trial Expired Activation of New Key - How?

There is one my friend having Office 2007 preloaded with a laptop he purchased about 2 months ago. Now he bought a unused License Key for Office 2007 but he is not able to get the place to enter those license keys and activate the office installed. Yes, it was trail version hence he bought the keys.

We tried to get some help on web but everywhere it was written to buy the software again. But as it is already installed we just bought the keys. Why don?t we use the already installed office and activate ? is there any way using command line we can activate the Office ? Please help.

Hello Spiritual,

Let me tell you that Trial versions are born as Trail and they dies as trail you cannot activate them as full version with any license key. So simply, but a new Office 2007 CD, uninstall the TRAIL with Windows Installer Cleanup tool and then install the purchased Office and activate it with the keys you have.

Yeah, that?s absolutely correct. If your system is running with the Trail and not the regular version then you will need to remove it completely from the system and install the Full version Office 2007. Later you can activate it with the keys you already bought. And if you are not having the software/Office CD, than you can download the retail version from Microsoft download center. Your keys will work with this.

Am not sure whether it will work but still you can give it a try. Open any office application from your TRAIL version, for example WORD, and go to Word Option, click resources in the navigation bar. There you will find an Option to Activate Office.

From where did you bought this activation keys ? I mean if it is purchased from a retailer,then click Enter Product Key, and then follow the instructions in the wizard. When you enter the keys, click I accept the terms in the License Agreement, and then click Next to install the software. If this dint worked than there is no way you can activate the TRIAL, you will need to remove it and buy the retail version of Office 2007.
