Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. OK I have this on my lappie and don't have a product key for it, (yes it is legal, came with lappie, just don't use it very often, like never). Now I'm trying to do some work from home this evening and the stupid thing is telling me it's locked and I can't type up what I need too!!

    Anybody know where I can find the product key for this? I've tried to google it but don't really know what I'm looking for.

    Help anybody?

  2. Google 'Keyfinder', download and open.

    It will give you the code for your operating system and Office 2007.
     
  3. If for some reason that doesn't work, download Open Office (OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite). It's a free equivalent of MS Office and will allow you to open and save Office files (Word, Excel, etc.).
     
  4. Ok have googled 'keyfinder' and something called magicjelly bean came up! Is that what I need?

    I'm blonde, very stupid when it comes to pc's and lappies. So kind of need it spoon feed to me in step by step simple instructions. Lots of emphasis on the simple!

    I am guessing the one which came installed on your laptop is a 60 day trial - which has expired.

    Be very careful about using Keygens etc, as they tend to come laced with nasties.

    Is your antivirus also a trial version?

  6. Thank You Flaggie, I have gone for your option as it involves me doing no work. Also it's less confusing!!

    Thank you as well LancePrivateJones

  7. I had the same problem. Office 07 came installed already however it was the TRIAL version therefore you need to buy a product key from Microsoft. The first time you opened any office programme the 60 day trial would have activated. You cannot do anything with anything created until you upgrade to the licensed version.

    A product key will cost a pretty penny but i have heard of UK forces discount on microsoft office products.
     
  8. Yes.
    Just download it, when it is downloaded install it and when it is installed click on to the Keyfinder icon and all will be revealed...hopefully.
    Good luck.
    PS Thanks for the tip for Open Office Flaggie, I am downloading it now.
     
  9. MSR, I have used it past the 60 day thing (I did lie I have used it just not very often) and now it just doesn't work. The input product key thing did come up in the past, but when I clicked close on it, it still worked. Now it just doesn't, and I have crappy paperwork to do before a meeting tomorrow. I'm currently downloading Flaggie's link thing. Hopefully that will sort it out.

  10. You are most welcome, I have decided to try Open Office as well thanks to Flaggie reminding me what it is called./images/icons/icon14.png

  12. Right now I'm confused!! Which is the better one to download? Or do they both do the same thing? Also Flaggie's one says it needs 52minutes to download is that right?
