Microsft Office 2007 on Windows 7 and how to Activate already-bought Office after installing Windows 7

kamaratana asked on



I was wondering after I do a clean install of Windows 7, how can I retrieve my Office 2007 back?  I do have the product key, but won't it say that I have used it on too many different PCs?  How can I get my Office 2007 to be fully activated on Windows 7 after I install it on my PC?


Thank you!

I don't know that. The Product Key may be enough. Any copy will do, if you can borrow the set. There is a trial download, and your key will probably convert that to a good version. You will have to try it to know.
