    This turned out to be a complicated story, but basically after more research I discovered that the copy of Office on my friend's machine is pirated; apparently someone in the IT dept where she works installed it. Obviously it can't be activated and she needs to either buy a license or move to something else. I want to thank everyone again who responded here. Sorry this turned out to be a wild goose chase.

    Thanks for this. I just recently discovered Belarc Advisor and it's really comprehensive; as you know it does much more than retrieve license information.

    For the moving on part:

    LibreOffice is free and can work with a number of Office documents and also Works.
    Home | LibreOffice - Free Office Suite - Fun Project - Fantastic People

    Also there's OpenOffice but latest version don't work with Works files.
    Apache OpenOffice - The Free and Open Productivity Suite
