Hi,
Im selling my computer today, and it needs to have office on it. It has office 03 which came with the computer, but i want to reinstall windows using the XP pro license on the computer... is there anyway i can reinstall windows and keep the office install? I have the CD to install it just not the key. Is there a way to find out the key this one was installed with and reuse it on the same computer??

Try using Belarc Advisor and look for your product keys in the listed results.

Howdy:

How did you manage to get the install cd without the key code to go with it?

That's what I thought and your Office support ends here.
