Hiyya Noel sorry late reply - bedtime for little fellas LOL!!

Mate it has downloaded another 13 on top of that - thing is I have had this software for some time and I think half the problem M$ might be seeing it as me selling it to all and sundry as I have swapped out hard drives in my laptop and the different tester machines I have made up over time.

I was to be honest quite amazed it didn't flash up this is an illegal copy - has done in the past and the fact that I didn't go online may have been influencing the install?

The software is genuine and I use it only for myself and I suppose it is a bit like the OS being tied to the mobo so it sees it as me doing bad things. Now for $129 for a new full 2010 version I am not that stupid - like I said earlier I only use it for Word when I am typing long messages back I just back up what I am typing cos there is nothing worse than hitting the wrong key and losing a heap of typing.

Still if I have any more issues with it I'll get a 2010 version just for a peaceful life of maybe one of the freebies - I just happen to be used to and like the Microsoft app, as I have used it since my tertiary studying days. I truly am not here to rip anyone off - for $129 you would have to have a screw loose

Office 2010 is a lot simpler in terms of licensing than 2007 - for one thing, there's no such thing as an Upgrade :)

Office Service Packs will (I think) install regardless of Genuine-ness - and the Office Genuine Advantage program for O2k7 was retired at the beginning of last year, so it's basically irrelevant now.
Office 2010 uses a very different activation/validation methodology which is totally within Office, rather than being an extension of the Windows system.

Even if your Office is possible seen as 'over-installed' telephone activation should sort that out.

Win7 Ultimate SP1 & WinXP SP3
None Of The Methods Have Worked For Me

Well...I have tried ALL of the methods described on this thread and others, all to no avail.
I canNOT get Office 2007 SP3 to always tells me that it has failed.
Also when I install Office 2007 it gives me 1406 errors, and I click "Ignore" and it goes through and installs anyway.
But I am wondering if something is not installing properly because of the errors I get on installation.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
I have even tried making it compatible with XP SP3, but it made no difference.

I was able to install Office 2007 and SP3 properly on my Windows XP OS without any problems at all.

I have been fighting with this Office 2007 SP3 update on my Windows 7 machine for quite some time, but I canNOT seem to get it to work.
I have done everything Microsoft suggested to do plus everything everybody else has suggested.
