Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L550-ST2721 Mac Notebook ?

Upgrade or purchase full version of Office 2007 Pro

\015 I purchased a new laptop with Windows 7 and 60 day trial of Microsoft office 2007 pro. I have the disks and license for Office 2000 and of course want to do the upgrade but how do I do that without having to pay for the full version? Must I download my Office 2000 version and continue to have the 2007 trial version still on the system? And furthermore, can I get the upgrade to 2007 Professional if I had the Office 2000 license or must I purchase the full version??\015

You have several questions, I'll try and hit them all in order of legality...

  1. You can upgrade to Office 2007 from Office 2000 if you buy the upgrade. That said...
  2. \012
  3. The pre-installed MS Office 2007 can not be setup as an upgrade so to be totally legal, you would have to uninstall it, install the older version, buy the upgrade, and then install the upgraded version over-writing the Office 2000 install you just did. Less preferred by MS but also legal...
  4. \012
  5. If you have a machine with Office 2000 installed or a backup, you can just copy the program into your program files directory and then upgrade... saving a little time. Or...no legal at all...
  6. \012
  7. You could possibly bypass all this effort, with certain risks just by cracking the Office 2K7 install and then having a legitimate upgrade cert on hand to show you own it legally. But MS has made this legally questionable with their, "you own the right to use our software", "You do not own our software"...lic agreement.
  8. \012
  9. Or...completely legal and stress free...Just throw up your hands and get open office for free, then use the spreadsheet and database from Office 2000. (Which work fine.) XD

With all instances of new software you must purchase a full version. I wish that you could get a dicount by turing in your old sofwares product key but that isnt the case. You must purchase full retail versions in order for everything to work as it should.
