Keeping MS Office after clean install

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by Drjones, Sep 22, 2011.

  1. I have a client that is interested in upgrading around 5+ of their computers to Windows 7. They currently have MS Office 2007 installed on all systems. I doubt they are going to want to also purchase Office 2010 licenses.

    If we move forward with doing a clean install of Windows 7 on several of their machines, how can we reinstall Office 2007 for them without having to pay for it again? I'm not betting on them having any of the original disks or license keys.

    Is there a way to find out the current software keys and re-use them on the same computers?

    Any way to do this??

    I have used Magic Jellybean Keyfinder in the past. It works quite well for most software packages.

    That way, you can perform a fresh install of Win7 and restore the licenses that they did pay for in the past for their other programs.

    I am sure you can find an .ISO for Win Office 2k7 for the install if you recover the legitimate keys.
