lassie,

MS is pushing migration to MS Office 2007 very, very hard now so have run into this problem frequently even when Office 2003 Product is Genuine with Genuine Product Key.

This problem appears to happen even more often after re-loading system drive from an archived genuine edition on a second hard drive.

Have spoken with MS twice on this subject and they have responded well so be prepared to call MS.

Kindest Regards,
Rick P.♦ :)

I have bought a copy from a store but I made a mistake and disposed the label which had the product key. The product key I now use is the key from the first office installation which I deleted... It came with the computer.

lassie,
You are (SOL) due to "disposing" of your Product Key.
(NOT) a responsible action on your part.
I have (NO) solution for you.
Kindest Regards,

Mike.
Yes; Highly Technical.
In fact, so technical, the term cannot be discussed fully in the short space we have to post in. Considering submitting a "White Paper" on the subject for peer review.(LOL) (LOL)

Mike,
The dissertation will definitely be too thick to transmit over E-mail or Fax so "Hand Delivery" is required. (LOL)
