If it's still installed on your computer, download Belarc Advisor and get 
the product key there.

If not and it's an OEM version, you need to contact your computer 
manufacturer.

If not and it's a full retail version, contact Microsoft.

Now I have had three PC's during the time that I have owned this product.  I 
am not sure which one it was what dow I do then.  I am sorry I forgot to 
mention that it was OEM.

If you read the End User License Agreement that comes with your 
OEM copy of Office, you will find that the license only allows 
you to install the software on computer that the software 
originally came with, and you are not allowed to install the 
software on any other computer.  Assuming you want the CD key to 
install the software on a new computer, then you need to purchase 
a new copy of Office for your new computer.

OEM means you're calling your computer manufacturer and I'd be willing to 
bet that they won't help you. I've only ever heard ONE person say they had 
success when they called their OEM for a product number. One out of MANY.

I'm sorry. I know that's not what you wanted to hear. Depending on the 
version, you might be able to buy an upgrade for Office and use that CD as 
your qualifying product. If you own Office 2003 then you'd have to wait 
until January 2007 for Office 2007 to be offered.

If your system still running you can use special software to recover your 
Windows and Office key. Most of them support some versions of Windows and 
some other Microsoft products. Also there is a products like "Recover Keys" ( 
 http://www.**--****.com/ ) that support all Windows and Office versions and 
300+ of other major software packages.

JoAnn, I thought my OE was broke.  Four reply posts by 
IrynaB within 12 minutes with no OP post being displayed, 
just trying to get someone to go to that site.

I really think you hit the nail on the head with the SPAM 
report.

Just wish you had deleted IrynaB's message before you 
responded.

Sorry you're right. I should have - and if I could have, I would have 
deleted them off of the server.

Me too (delete off server.)  Don't worry about it, we all 
make small mistakes once in a while. We just hope we don't 
get caught in the big ones.

It wouldn't do me any good to plan on that one. Knowing myself as well as I 
do, something will trip me up.  :-(

Yes, me too.  Just got this system back up and running after 
having to do a repair install of XP.  This is the first 
problem I have had with this laptop since I bought it in 
2002.  Still haven't figured out what happened but during 
Window's disk cleanup it trashed the desktop and a lot of 
Window's files and/or registry, but all the icons were still 
there, I lost everything on the taskbar, including Start. 
Couldn't get most programs to run but a few did.  Of course 
this was the laptop I didn't slipstream SP 2 onto the 
original Gold (but OEM) install disk.  Thank goodness for 
Autostreamer and a different computer to burn the ISO image. 
Now right back where it was before the failure after the 
repair install.  Almost was the big one.

2.original office CD-Rom is lost

Hi,
I want to install more up to date office suite on a friend's PC. All I
can see already installed on her system is Microsoft Word 97 only and
she has lost her original CD for this so I cannot uninstall it. Now I
understand that if I try to install say Office 2000 without
uninstalling previous Office program there may be a conflict - is this
right? Would I be able to install Office XP without problems? (She has
Windows 98 and lots of spare hard drive space available). What can I
do when old CD lost? many thanks.
