Microsoft Office Home And Student 2007

I just bought a new dell laptop with windows 7 and microsoft office home and student, both installed by dell. When i attempt to get into word i get a message telling my that i have to insert a 25 digit product key. I then found a 25 digit product key on the cd dell provided me and made 5 attempts to type it in the message; but it tells me that it is the wrong product key. I went into help and reached a spot containing word info. It had the words "product key" listed but there were no digits following. I'm really concerned because the message also told me that i will only get 25 chances to enter the product key.

Office Home & Student 2007 Automatic Updates Are Not Working

I am at a loss as to what to do. I recently downloaded microsoft office home & student 2007 which seems to be fine. The problem is, the automatic updates are not working. After searching online, i did the start>run>winver and it says i have service pack 3. Then i went to control panel under add/remove programs and although it is listed, there is no indication that it is actually installed.

I can remember a year or so ago having issues with sp3 when i tried to upgraded to ie8 so "i think" i removed it. Probably shouldn't have done that!  But ie8 worked fine once i removed says we will no longer receive automatic updates to sp2 in june so we need to upgrade to sp3. Well, i just don't know what i have on my computer at this point!

Anyway, now i get these failure messages on the updates for the office:

The 2007 microsoft office suite service pack 2 (sp2)

Update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb967642)

Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb951944)

Security update for microsoft office 2007 (kb951550)

So i thought i would go in and download sp2. But i wasn't sure if microsoft .net framework 2. 0 service pack 2 actually meant i have sp2 installed or not. And i got myself in such a pickle last year i don't want to take any chances again. I'm sorry this is such a long message. I tried to do print screens to attach more info but that didn't work. Let me know what else you may need.

I have found additional information. Looking into my update history for the automatic updates, all 4 of these failed updates have the same error code which is: 0x80070663. I don't know if that info helps to solve this problem or not but there it is.

Product Key Invalid Student Version Of Office 2007

If any microsoft representative could help me on this, it would be great. I purchased the student version of office 2007 2 years or so ago. My laptop's motherboard got fried a week ago and i got a new laptop now. Using the trial version, i want to activate it  using the product key from my office 2007 student version. When i enter the product key it says: the key is incorrect. Verify that you have the correct key, and then retype it. What should i do about this. I don't wanna pay for another key. Can't afford anything right now.

Microsoft Office 2007 Error During Setup

I got the error in the title of this but no other errors. None of the kb articles was relevant.

I fixed it by removing anything related to the microsoft office document converter that allowed me to open docx and xlsx file.

I uninstalled the microsoft office document converter but that failed so i had to use the windows installer clean-up utility to remove it.

I deleted everything from the program file/microsoft office/12. 0 folder. In my case there was some visual studio stuff there which i left in place.

I also deleted the keys in hkey_classes_rootinstallerproducts which ended in 01fec (for example 000021091a0090400000000000f01fec) which were related to office 2007.

Office Outlook 2007 - Microsoft Exchange Is Unavailable

I am trying to configure microsoft office outlook 2007. When i open the program, it comes up with a message that reads "microsoft exchange is unavailable. " Since i don't use/don't know what microsoft exchange is, i click "work offline. " I then get a message that reads ""outlook cannot log on. Verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name.

The connection to microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action. " I then hit "ok, " and it asks me for microsoft exchange information, which i do not have. I hit "cancel, " and it says "cannot open your default e-mail folders.

Your profile is not configured. " I then hit "ok" and the program quits. How am i supposed to be able to configure my accounts when the program quits every time i try to open it? I would greatly appreciate some assistance! I have two comcast email accounts and my . Edu account.

Office 2003 Issue - Microsoft Office End User License Agreement

Windows 7 pro, get "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " From office 2003 programs. I purchased a new hp computer with windows 7 pro, then loaded all of the software i'd been using on my old xp system. Every time i start any office 2003 app, i get a dialog box labeled "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " I must click on "accept" before continuing. I use an old vista solution of 'running as admin' and now i receive a box asking if it is alright to modify this program(registry i think). How can i stop this box from appearing?

Security In Office 2007

I grade on a on-line platform and recently since purchasing a laptop w/win7 my "saved graded files" or when opening a previously graded and uploaded document (excel, word) at a later time [to cut & paste a tutorial onto the current work ] once uploaded. Both docs seem to be in touch with the platform. The old work opened seems to launch and communicate a new date stamp with the old upload location (or student) simultaneously with the current work being uploaded into the grade box or drop-box or next student.

Therefore both pieces then show the same time on the date stamp via upload. Lthough it may be the 'private schools' concern. This oddity did not arise with office 2007 & xp nor vista combination. Therefore, i am trying to ask. If this signifies a security weakness in my end (i do have firewalls, etc) or if win7 seems to retain links in order to map to recent places faster? How can i stop the reconnect?

Office 2007 Crashes

Since updating to windows 7 ultimate, i find my office 2007 apps keep stalling, freezing and crashing; windows explorer also keeps having the same issue. It happens when i highlight and copy and try to paste; when i highlight a selected section of text; when i try to drag ppt pictures; when i try to edit excel documents; and when i am on the internet with ie8.

The consistency of the crashes seems to vary. It does not always happen, but of late it has become more consistent. I have read posts on this and find that many people say they are having the same issues.

Cannot Register Ms Office 2007

I don't really know what else to do here. I have 2 problems and i really think that the problem is related. Firstly and most importantly, i can not register ms office ultimate 2007. I get the error 701098. It says either a proxy is the problem or its a firewall. I have no firewall running. Defender is not running. Nothing is running but for some reason, ms office is the only thing on the face of the planet that will not connect to the internet.

I need this to work for my college but cant get it to work and ms will not help me. 'i also am trying to tether my blackberry bold 9000 and it will not leave my computer as a modem to connect to the server to act as a modem. Something on my computer is blocking or not allowing and i can not figure out what it is and i cant do my school work.

Ms Office 2007 Lost And Did Not Transfer

After win 7 professional installation and completing 'transfer of files', my ms office standard 2007 did not transfer along with my (other) previously loaded ms programs. Are these programs now lost or can i retrieve them? I have been using vista since it's release and i have noted no problems of this type before.

I purchased your ms step by step win 7 manual prior to my win7 installation, but was unable to fix this problem. I don't want to loose all my ms word program, data or files. I have tried using the windows easy transfer (win 7) at least 3x w/o success! I don't want to reload the office standard again. I also don't want to purchase a new ms office 2007 either. (I had to reload it previously due to a hd replacement (after it's failure)).

Ms Office Outlook 2007 Question

I currently have ms office home & student edition and want to buy ms office outlook 2007. Will outlook integrate into my existing office suite seamlessly in the same way as if i'd bought, say, office pro that comes with outlook as standard. Are there any differences in buying/installing them separately.

I'm using win7 64-bit. Please don't tell me to post in the outlook forum as that seems to pretty dead.

Office 2007 Outlook Problem

I have a two-month old latitude e-4300 laptop with 4gb of ram, running windows 7 pro. It was initially a wonderfully fast machine, but i have had two serious outbreaks of problems. In both cases, i first noticed problems in outlook 2007, which i use to access amy work email account via the outlook connector. The problems begin with outlook taking forever to download my email, and sometimes returning a series of blank email messages with no content. The first time this happened, on advice of microsoft support, i tried to uninstall and reinstall office 2007.

It uninstalled, but would not reinstall. After hours on the line with tech support, the eventual verdict was that my .net files had been and hp technical support both failed to find a solution, other than completely reinstalling windows 7 and reloading all my programs and data – which i eventually technical support suggested that the problem may have been triggered a very large outlook. Pst file, then more than 6gb. So i archived it into several separate files. The working file is now less than 0. 6 gb, my two archived files each around 3 - 4 gb.

The problem with outlook has now returned, intermittently, and the performance of my machine has plummeted to a point at which i am barely able to work. Programs keep hanging in "not responding" mode, simple excel spreadsheets or explorer windows can take 15-20 seconds to load, web browsing has become intermittently glacial, and three times yesterday i had a blue screen failure while working on an excel spreadsheet.

I have uninstalled recently installed software, switched off services running in the background, cleansed programs from my startup menu, and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have an answer other than "buy a mac"? I simply cannot continue working with a system that needs a complete reinstall of its operating system and data every month or so.

Office 2007 Product Key

The product key for my genuine version of office professional 2007 is not being accepted on my new laptop. It contains a zero that it rejects because it says product key's don't have zeros or the letter o. I can't see the product key on the label that came with the discs that were shipped to me following my online purchase and download. Nor can i locate the email sent with my purchase.

Do you have any suggestions as to how i can validate the product key that i have a note of for accuracy?

Indexing Not Working In Office 2007

When i open indexing options the dialog box says "waiting to receive indexing status. " And just stays that way. When i go into outlook and check for indexing status, nothing happens (i imagine it's also waiting, but there is no dialog box or other indication). Any ideas? I am running win7 64-bit and office 2007.

The problem started when i noticed that outlook was only indexing my default pst file, not the others that open with outlook. When i tried to add the others in indexing options the dialog box didn't work, so that was when i tried to check index status and found i could not even do that.

How to upgrade from office 2000 to office 2007? I have vista home premium installed along with with microsoft office 2000.

Can I Load Office 2007 Xp Mode?

I have a old program that will not run in windows 7. I purchased windows 7 professional to get xp mode running. When i attempt to "share" the old program (to allow windows 7 access to the reports, and interface with excel), my legacy program interprets this as being run "remotely" - and immediately shuts down. It works perfectly inside xp - if i open up xp mode but now none of my microsoft office products are "registered".

I have attempted twice to load office into the xp "virtual box" ( i have a 3 home pc license ) - but it gets about  1/3 of the way (after about 15 minutes), and says it can not find some msi files.
I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to computers - although not bad at applications. Is there anyway of loading office into the xp virtual box when running windows 7 in xp mode.

Office 2007 Not Activated Message

I installed office 2007 standard on windows 7 (which was an upgrade from xp). I activated the suite. (Installed and activated as administrator. ) Checking the activation status (options-resources-activate) showed each program was already activated. I created a standard user and accessed the programs from there. Doing so the first time resulted in a message stating that the programs were not activated.

I found a microsoft genuine advantage web page which had a check for communications and browser problems. The check ran and found problems with activex and fixed it. (I though perhaps the mcafee computer cleanup function had deleted something. ) I clicked buttons on the web page to validate the windows and office software. All seemed to be well.

The next day i ran word again and had the same message pop up - the program was not activated. Checked the program (options-resources-activate) and the message says the program is already activated. (I had not used mcafee's cleanup function, so that cannot have been the problem this time. )

I am afraid the program will be disabled or crippled if i cannot get all parts of the program to beleive that it has indeed been activated. What can i do to fix this?

Installing Office 2007 On More Than One Machine

Two questions: firstly, i have 2 pcs and a laptop. The first have xp and the laptop has vista. One of the pcs (both of which are over 5 years old) has a corrupt hard drive which can only be fixed via recovery disc. I thought instead of this i could buy windows 7 and install it on all 3 machines. Can i do this legally or do i have to have buy a separate windows 7 product for each machine?

Second question but related: i have microsoft office 2007 on my laptop but have the installation dvds. Can i install this on my two pcs legally?

Cannot Install Office 2007 Upgrade

I was running the eval version of windows 7. Since it expires tomorrow, i did the new install of windows 7 tonight - ran just fine. Then i put in my office 2007 standard upgrade to install, but it says it can't find a qualifying product. I tried pointing it to the office 2k7 directory in windows. Old that was created during the win7 install, but that is not working. (i.e. C:windows. Oldprogram files (x86)microsoft officeoffice12)

Do i really need to go install older software, then upgrade again, etc. ? This is frustrating! The upgrade edition box clearly says that it will work with any component of office 2007. So it should run. Why isn't it recognizing the old install files in the win. Old folder?
