Installing the product key failed for Office 2010. Please try another product key.
  

I have spent my last 5 hours in installing the Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010. It was like a headache to me. Still haven't installed it yet. I have installed it, uninstall it several times but it worked never. Please help me!!! When it asks me to enter the product key then it says the product key failed for Office 2010. Please try another product key. What could be the reason behind wrong product key. I have got frustrated now and seems like using an Office 2007 was better then this headache.

Re: Installing the product key failed for Office 2010. Please try another product key.

I bought a laptop brand Acer with Windows Seven. I served for some time from Microsoft Word. But since yesterday, when I get a doc saved a few days ago, impossible to modify a window tells me:
"Type the product key, Enter the product key of 25 characters. Although you are not required to enter the product key now, we recommend you do to help validate your license microsoft office ...." Could someone help me please? Because I can not even create new documents, I typed the key is underneath my pc which is windows but did nothing.

I am almost certain that the version of Word was installed was a trial, lasting 60 days - that's what practice the majority of manufacturers. You have several options:
  1. Either you buy a license for Office 2007 (like the Home and Student version) (I assume also that other programs were installed Office: Excel, Powerpoint ...)
  2. Either you download and install the beta version of Office 2010, which is free, but whose life is also limited (it will stop working October 31, 2010: logic, since the final version is already on sale at this date)
  3. Either you use the Office Web Apps Online Apps, that online versions of Office software (which still needs to be continuously connected to the Internet): In the same vein, you can also use Google Docs (docs.google.com)
  4. Either you install the free OpenOffice.org suite and free, which is consistent with the documents you have created with Word.

The process of search or replace a product key is different depending on the product version (trial version or full version). An evaluation version is a free temporary version of a Microsoft product that allows you to activate it once to try before you buy. After activating the trial version, you can use the full product for 60 days. A full version offers a perpetual license. This means you can activate the software on two computers and use it throughout the life of every computer. To search or replace the product key full version. If your office's product key has been not getting accepted by the Office's version then i suggest you to get the new executable with the new product key which might not be having any such problem.
