That is because the Windows product key is not he same as the Office key. You need to buy a license separately if you want to use Microsoft Office.

If you don't want to pay, you're not alone. There are free alternatives. I recommend the reputable OpenOffice Suite. It does everything Microsoft Office does, for free.
