    After a control panel fix Office 2013 requires a key i no longer have


    HI there
    I had my computer checked and upgraded ready to begin study and they installed Windows 10.
    When I went to use it no Office applications worked.
    As I could not keep anything open to go to "file" I searched internet and followed directions for a repair via the control panel (internet repair).
    It took ages and must have reinstalled the whole program as now when I open Office 2013 home and student version it asks for a product key or my account.
    HOWEVER I cannot find the product key any more after many house moves AND when I log in to Microsoft it says my account is not linked to this product.
    I tried instructions from internet for a ?dry boot ? using msconfig .. which made no difference .. and now not sure if everything from that is back where it should be.
    I also logged onto Microsoft and booked a tech call but 24 hours later have not received one.
    Please help. I am at my wits end.

    :)

    Microsoft Office no longer working

    Hi Chris, follow these steps to perform a full repair of your Office installation . . .

    Open Control Panel - Programs and Features

    Click Microsoft Office in the list of installed applications

    At the top, click 'Change'

    On the resulting dialog, click 'Repair' - choose the Quick Repair first, if that does not resolve this, try the Online Repair, it is a comprehensive fix

    That should fix any issues with your Office Installation . . .

    NOTE: Please be advised, if you are running Office 2013 or earlier, before attempting a repair, have your Microsoft Office Product Key at hand, Office may need to be re-activated in some cases
