Microsoft office reset in windows 7

Hello,

I have windows 7 home premium and put the wrong activation key into microsoft office 2007, the registry recent used in vista doesn't appear to work in windows 7 as there is no 'Registration' key in the HKLM for office/12.0

Any ideas before having to re-download it and reinstalling it?

Regards





Craig

The above method has been tried by the thread starter. The problem is, there is no Registration key under HLKM.

I would suggest a re-install.

If dreams is correct then try to repair the office install. Try the following methods.

1) Go to Control panel->Programs and features->add/ remove programs.

Click on Office 2007 entry, then select Change.

Click on Repair, click on Continue.

2) Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Program Options (Program means name of the program such as Word).

In the Navigation Pane, click Resources.

Click Diagnose.

Click Continue.

Click Start Diagnostics.

Are you able to open and use all programs of office 2007. If not, I would say the install is corrupt and you can try what Bill has said. If everything works fine, then a re-install would do the trick.

Hello, It loads each application of office 2007 up and it flashes up with the 'Activate or Purchase' options but i really cannot be bothered going through the process of reinstalling it hahahaha I think I will have to do a clean install, it was soo much easier to reset this in Vista. Thanks for the reply Regards Craig

When it invites you to "activate", can't you just go there? Else go into e.g. Word Options > Resources > Activate

Yeah I tried that, It takes me to a page where it begins to connect and then says that it failed because the key was invalid or was not correct. Same thing when I click on Activate manually through the resource menu. Kinda strange, Regards Craig
