Free Office 2007 Product Key

If you’re a student or any other person looking for a free Office 2007 product key then here’s something cool for you. Just follow the steps in this post properly to activate your Office 2007.

How to Convert Office 2007 into a Full Version?

Firstly, install Microsoft Office 2007 without the product key.

After installation go to the following location:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\

Search for the file “Proof.XML”, and Open it with notepad.  Now, scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following:

</Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248″>
<OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/>
</Feature>

Change the above lines to look like below:

</Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248″>
<OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/>
</Feature>

That’s it! Save the Proof.xml file. In Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before modifying the file.You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without any activation prompts.

This may work only for 60 days. Hence you may also need to delete the following every 60 days.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA\opa12.dat
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA (for Windows 7 and Vista)
