Windows 7: Microsoft Office 2007 after upgrade?

Microsoft Office 2007 after upgrade?

Hello, I'm new to these forums (just registered a few moments ago). I just recently upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. So far, I love it!

I do however have one problem. I used a program to locate my product key for Office 2007 before I upgraded so I would be able to install it after the upgrade. However when I enter that key into the Activation box in Office, it says the key is incorrect.

Is this because it thinks that the key is still in use? Was there something I should have done (deactivate it or something) before I upgraded? Is there anyway to fix this because I really don't feel like spending another wad of cash for this program. I don't want to use any alternatives like OpenOffice or Google Docs.

I appreciate any input you can give. Thanks!

Welcome to Seven Forums, TrevorX3.

I also have Office 2007, and re-loaded it when I moved from XP to Windows 7. There was no need to deactivate it, I just put in the key that came with the CDs.

You said that you had to use a program to find the key. It is possible that either the program did not work correctly or that you copied the numbers incorrectly - don't you have the original media for it?

It is possible that the program I used failed to correctly distinguish the product key. I doubt, however it's possible, that I copied it incorrectly because I copied/pasted it. Hopefully I will be able to find my Office CD. Should be around here somewhere...
