Default Office 7 product key error?

Hi Friends,
I am trying to install office 7 but facing the product key error.
I applied the given key in the setup several times but it did not work.


Anyone please tell me the problem...

Where are you installing from - a genuine Office DVD or a download from MS or one of its partners? What product key are you using - one that came on the Office DVD case or one supplied MS or one of its partners? Are you sure the product key is for the edition you're installing?

There's no need to supply the actual Product Key (I've deleted it for privacy and anti-piracy reasons).

Does your PC have any other Office versions/editions installed (eg a Office 2007 trial or Office 2003)? Is your product key for an upgrade version, or a fresh install?

OK, you should be able to install Office 2007 alongside Office 2003 (except for Outlook - only one version can exist at a time), or as a replacement.

I take it you are using the Office 2007 product key, and not the Office 2003 one ... What error message, if any does the installer report?

Just in case it's a problem that relates to the Windows XP installation, have a read of this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916247.

Thanks for help.
I uninstalled office 2003 and now I have just office 7.
and it is working but it is not opening the previous version ( 2003 ) file.
Now what should I do?

Office 2007 should open Previous versions' files without difficulty. Which Office application are you having trouble with?
