Can't print attachments or e-books

By lrust49302 ·
When I try Microsoft Office Standard 2003 says a dialog box is open and needs to be closed. To do this Microsoft wants the serial number from the disc or case to fill 5 boxes. I bought the computer one to two years ago, I'm not sure whether I downloaded this 60 day trial Icon on my desktop or if it came with the computer but I have no idea where to find that number. Office Depot said to buy a new Microsoft Home & Student 2007 because they don't have a 2003. I don't have $120. for the new software just now. They told me I could circumvent by going to Programs and get a word processor, but that also is a Microsoft operation and they still want their Serial number. Any Ideas warmly welcomed. Thank you, Lloyd Rust

If you can't afford MS Office, then uninstall it and install Open Office.

And you can't remember whether Microsoft Office was a download trial or a pre-install, you can't have used it much.

Therefore, the suggestion to uninstall and then install Open Office is a good one.

It's not as if you're gonna miss anything - you've never used it.

If there is a 60 Day Trial Icon on the desktop you have a Trial version of Office which is limited to use for 60 days.

However as you are saying that you are trying to open Office 2003 I would say here you have downloaded the Trial Version of Office 2007 which disables the older versions of Office and makes itself the default M$ Office Application. Here you need to remove the Office 2007 and reinstall the office 2003.

The 25 Digit Product Code will be either on the CD Case that Office came in originally or it may be included ion the Recovery Disc for your System in which case it will be a Volume License Version and will have the product key Slipstreamed.

Depending on who made your computer this may require a complete Backup and reinstall from the Recovery Disc or you may be able to just install the Office Product or it may be a 60 Day Trial of Office 2003 that was available through some Computer Makers on New systems. The offer of the Office 2007 is a Student Version which is considerably cheaper than a Full Version of Office by over $1,000.00 so while you are involved with a Education Intuition it's worth the money but if you have never used this previously I would say Remove Office through the Control Panels Add Remove Programs and install Open Office from here
