    If you have a legitimate copy of Word and you haven't given your Product Key to others, then contact Microsoft and explain the situation.

    http://support.microsoft.com/

    On the other hand, if the message is true and you are trying to use a copy of Office without a license, then uninstall that copy. You can download genuine, not pirated Microsoft Office 2010 beta for free (the whole suite of software with nothing left out). The earliest you can purchase the release to market version will be June 2010. You can enjoy using the beta until October 2010.

    Microsoft now has a free version of Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote on line at Skydrive. There's nothing to install. You use the Skydrive version of Microsoft Office from any computer - Mac, PC, or even LINUX - in your FireFox, Safari or IE web browser. Your Office files are accessible from any computer with an internet connection, and you can print & save them locally, too. This link gives instructions on how to get SkyDrive. Then you can brag to your friends that you are doing "cloud computing." You can even allow others to access your online documents.

    The thing about anti-piracy software is it has a tendency to lock out people who bought legitimate copies. This is one of the few times microsoft tech support can be helpful. You should still be able to activate it by phone.

    When I went to use "Windows Anytime Upgrade" to upgrade the Windows 7 Home Version installed on my laptop to Windows 7 Pro, it seemed like the logical and easy way to gain the ability to join an AD Domain. The idea of being able to upgrade you license makes sense.

    However when I started the process, I found that Microsoft doesn't sell keys for Windows 7 anymore. I certainly didn't want to update my entire OS to Windows 8.1 Pro. The only option I had was to find a vendor that still had Windows 7 Pro licenses in-stock. I found several sites that listed Windows 7 Pro, but most of them had the same message "Out of Stock".

    In the end I did a place that was able to sell me a license key - http://www.windowspremiumkey.com

    The service was prompt, courteous, and I received a genuine license key within minutes of my purchase.

    If you are caught with "Windows Anytime Upgrade" woes, or if you are looking for Windows software, I give http://www.windowspremiumkey.com

    a Five Stars rating. I wold not hesitate to purchase software again, and if someone is looking to buy a license key for Windows, I would recommend http://www.oggus.com without reservation.

    Doing a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" was far less painful than the time and effort required to switch to Windows 8.1.

    You are only allowed to install office 2007 on one desktop and two laptops per product key. If you install it on more, it probably will not let you activate it.
