windows 2003

By mishwine ·
I legally purchased windows 2003 and just bought a new computer and it won't let me install my software. It keeps telling me:

'YOU MUST ACCEPT THE END-USER AGREEMENT (eula) TO USE THIS SOFTWARE. IF YOU DON'T ACCEPT, THIS APPLICATION WILL QUIT"

Is there a way around this since I purchased the software?

Thank you,Michele

Accept it

by NormH3 In reply to windows 2003

There should be a tick that will allow you to ACCEPT.

Michele, read the EULA and except it. If you don't accept it it will not install. It is standard practice with these products.

Accept/Activate

by mishwine In reply to As Norm has said

I have accepted the end-user agreement yet this agreement keeps popping up when I am in Word or Email (Outlook).

Am I suppose to activate my existing software some how, some way?

OK, it's Office 2003

by Jacky Howe In reply to Accept/Activate

You will have to run an Office application once as Administrator. Right-click on the Winword.exe shortcut or the actual .exe file and choose "Run as Administrator". Click "Continue" in the UAC dialog. The EULA information should properly be registered.

You must accept the Office End User License Agreement every time that you start an Office program

Try...

...calling Microsoft.

I've heard that they provide support free of charge for issues regarding licensing and activation.

Will, I really have to "accept" the end-user agreement EVERYTIME I open Word and Outlook?

Not if you follow the instructions that I have provided. It is probably because you are logged on with a standard User Account that you are getting these messages.

Open Windows Explorer

by Jacky Howe In reply to winword.exe

and navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11 and scroll to the bottom if it is sorted alphabetically. Right mouse click on winword.exe and select Run As, tick the box to the left of The following user: Type in Administrator if it isn't already selected and type in the password and click OK.
