So, I've upgraded my hard-drive on my laptop, and proceeded to grab my trusty copper-faced Official MS Office disk to do an install. I have three licenses with the fancy green-blue paper that identifies the license keys.
Problem is, that for each of these license keys, when the Office 2007 software asks that I enter the "Product Key" it states:
The key is incorrect. Verify that you have the correct key, and then retype it
Why would Microsoft want to inhibit/prohibit re-installs on the same machine that the software was initially installed to?
Incidentally, the same goofy error happens with each of the three valid product key (activation keys) that I enter.
