Hi,

I've recently expired the Trial Period that I had for the MS Office software that came on this computer
(eMachines). There is an offer to convert to the Full Product, but I'm not sure if I want to do that since this computer is only being used as a "bridge" for a short time (it was a gift).

Is there another Trial Edition of the software that I could use for about 6 months or less ??

Thanks so much.

There is no way to get another trial version of software that you have already used for the entire trial period. Trying to use a trial past its trial period is illegal and we will not help you try to do that...

Now if you want a substitute to Office, you can try Open Office. It is completely free. You can check it out at the link below:

Thank you for the link, I'll look at it.

I wasn't trying to get help bending the law, just wondering how Trial versions work, and if there's another.

Thanks again.

Glad it's working for you. :whistling: And I didn't say that you were trying to do anything illegal. I was just covering the bases in my post.
