My new Dell computer has MS Office program which only goes online to offer MS 2010 for installing, purchase, or try for a limited time.
When I tried to load the new MS Office 2007 (Standard) issue, it asks for the product key, which is refused. It seems to suggest that I get Microsoft Office 2010.
This is the first time I have ever had to load a program. Should I remove the Office program that came with the computer before doing anything?
The only thing I have loaded are my genealogy files, which have never been a problem on my older computer. I have not installed the genealogy program, yet; I want to get the computer up to being useable.
The MS Office on the laptop is most likely only a trial version or even only a link to the trial version. Do you have a DVD with Office 2007 and a license key, or only a license key? It sounds like you are trying to install Office 2010 with a 2007 product key. That is not going to work. If you have a dvd, uninstall the current office and install the 207 version from dvd.
