Default Upgrading an older Office upgrade

I am retiring an old PC that has Office 2000 std on it. I bought a new PC with 64-bit Win 7, and bought an Office 2007 Pro upgrade since I have a legit Office to upgrade.
Office wants to find an installed copy of my Office 2000. You can't just give it the old license key. When I tried to install my Word 2000 on the new machine, I realized it is an upgrade of a prior version. It won't install without finding its prior version. No way I still have my Office 95 disks.


If you buy a new machine and retire an old one, do you have to throw out your old office and buy a full version of Office? The upgrade is now not returnable since I opened it. If I had installed this upgrade on the old machine, it would have found the old copy and all would be wonderful.
Any ideas how I can get this copy installed in the new machine?
thanks, Allan

See if you can find any help here

This probably won't help you here, but maybe with other stuff:

With Windows 7: Start > Select a Program > Properties > Compatibility
