    Where to download Office 2007 with product key?


    I put in my product key and solved the captcha, but then I see this:


    Hey, I recently built a new pc, can I use a 2007 product key? [​IMG]


    After I click next, it asks me to sign in to a Microsoft Account. *Sad

    I'm not interested in buying Office. I don't think I was clear, sorry. What I mean is that I already have Office 2007 Home and Student, purchased in 2008. I am trying to install it on a computer without a DVD drive and without having to create a Microsoft Account.

    What do you mean, "black listed"? Black listed from what? I installed Office 2007 on my desktop using the DVD I bought in 2008 with no problems in Windows 10. Bill Gates once said a few years ago that ANY Microsoft software product that a person buys will always be compatible with later versions of Windows, and that applies to Office, of course.

    Built new PC, bought Windows 10, can't verify product key.....?

    I recently built a new PC:

    Asus z97-pro

    Intel i7

    Samsung Evo SSD

    It boots to the Asus UEFI bios utility just fine, and I updated the Bios via USB drive without issues.

    I purchased Windows 10 for a clean 64-bit install, used the recommended installation utility program to create a USB ISO for a new PC, and restarted the PC with the USB plugged in.

    The windows install software starts up, but displays a Windows 8 logo.

    When prompted, I enter the region, language, time data, and go to the product key verification screen.

    My product key, sent via the proof of purchase email, will not verify.

    The key is correct.

    The PC recognizes all devices and values.

    Why wont the product key work?

    Hey, I recently built a new pc, can I use a 2007 product key?

    Product key association disable on old pc

    Hey,


    I sold my old pc to a friend. He installed some missing parts (HDD, GPU and RAM). Then we installed Windows 10 Home 64-bit version from USB stick. I was surprised to see that windows was automatically activated after that. I did some digging and found out that it is using my product key, which i use now in my own new pc. My friend does not have his own product key, the idea was that he just uses the unactivated windows with limited features.


    I uninstalled my Windows 10 product key via command prompt in friends computer (as i understand this is only local solution, if he reinstall windows or clicks the active button, it reactivates automatically with my product key) and now it says windows is not activated, but my product key is still shown with Produkey app in his pc. So far windows is still activated my own pc.


    My questions:

    1. Is this all i need to do?
    2. How do i get rid of product key showing still with product key showing apps on my friend's computer?
    3. Is there a way to get rid of association of my product key on that old pc that i sold to friend?

    EDIT: I originally installed windows 10 via upgrade option from Windows 7, if that matters.
