MS Installation KEY

By D.H. Cesare ·

MS Office Pro 2003

I am trying to add EXCEL to my OFFICE 2003 installation. When I enter the KEY, it tells me the KEY is invalid. It's the KEY I used to install OFFICE originally and it matches the MS Office key in the registry.

Why won't it recognize the key and let me install EXCEL?

Thanx

The COA was stuck on the bottom with some of its surface stuck into a moulding in the case.

FIVE people swore that one of the characters was a '4'. SIX hours and much head-scratching later it turned out the character was a badly printed 'H'.

Capital letter "Ohh" and character "Zero" are also habitual offenders.

The outcome from my next eye test I fear.

I've already got bi-focals draped over my ears as I type.

I've already booked an eye test such is my recent difficulty wielding a Precision (Scoped) Rifle in CRYSIS.

Limited shells is a b!tch !

Limited ocular abilities is a ******* !!

Well what you can do is....

Un-install your office suite and then do a full install of office. Though please do a backup first. Hope this helps you.

Please post back if you have more problems or questions.
