If you have the full version of Microsoft Office 2007 but are missing the required activation code to install the software on your computer, you will need to obtain a new activation code from Microsoft Support. Before contacting the Support Center in your area, you'll want to do your best to locate the missing code by checking product packaging, confirmation e-mails, Certificates of Authenticity or the Retail Perpetual Product Key that came with your computer or your Microsoft software.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not be tempted by free download instructions for Microsoft Office products. Illegal and untrustworthy websites allow users to download free versions of Microsoft products -- many of which are infected with viruses, spyware and other security threats.
