How can I convert my trial version of Microsoft Office 2007 system to the full, released version?
Office 2007 lets you enter a valid product key to convert your trial version to a full version without reinstallation. From inside any Office 2007 application, do the following:
- Click the Office Button in the upper left corner of the Office applications.
- Select Options (e.g., Word Options).
- In the resulting dialog box, select Resources.
- Select Activate Office and follow the prompts from there. Have your product key ready.
Just so you aren't surprised, even after activating you'll see a message in the Resources section that says Activation is required to continue using all the features in this product, and the Activate button remains enabled. Ahhh… software!
