    Default What can I do to get Office 2007 to work again on windows 8

    Hi all,

    Since I installed Windows 8 release (from XP) on my laptop, all the program files have been moved into windows.old folder.

    I keep getting the same error message, "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". I can't get any of them to work and I no longer have the Office 2007 (& Adobe Professional) Product Keys and none of the Product Key Finder softwares seem to be able to scan the windows.old folder to get me the product keys.

    What can I do to get Office 2007 (and adobe professional) to work again?

    You have to install ALL your apps on Win 8. The windows.old folder can only be used to get your data and move it into the new OS.

    Will they ask to activate the office If I re-install it? I lost my product key.

    Then you will have to call MS to activate it. It is very important to keep your product keys in a safe place. Having to reactivate these apps helps to cut down on piracy.
