Could you please tell me which of these is the Product code

This answer was rated:

Could you please tell me which of these is the Product code for my Microsoft Office so I can re install it as my disks are not available. I UNDERSTAND IT SHOULD HAVE 25 DIDGETS?

I made a note of the info on the plastic box: see below.

9999-629-493 X12-08297
8 82224-15050 7
Office Pro 2007 Win32 English Intl AE not to US CD

None of these are sorry, as (as you mentioned) it has to be 25 digits.

Where did you originally purchase office from?

Tasmania Australia

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX which store?

And was it on a disk or downloaded?

I think it was Harvey Norman shop in Launceston : 2 disks.


If you got it on a disk from a store, the only product code that will work is the one printed on the disk.

You cannot use other product codes (they do this to stop piracy).

In your situation, you either have to find the disks so you can get the correct code to use.

Go back to Harvey Norman and ask if they would provide you a replacement code (it is not common they do, but if you cannot locate the disks you should ask) else if they do not, you would need to purchase a new copy of Office as without the correct code, you are not going to be able to install it sorry.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I have found the 2 disks but cannot find a 25 digit code on either. I've tried to install them but it still asks for the Activation Code.


Regards Stuart

It is on the cases the disks came in, or the box they came in on.
