In May I bought a copy of Office Home and Student 2007 and it said that I could upgrade to Office 2010 when it came out. Now when I try to upgrade to Office 2010 it says I have not activated Office 2007 even though I have activated all the programs. I did get office 2007 professional from my friend and added the extra programs it came with to my computer.

All the programs are genuine.

There was no need to close the question.

Questions are closed once an answer is selected as correct. That's how it's done. Don't select an answer as correct if you don't want discussion to end and it to probably be closed.

That is the correct answer for now but in the future maybe someone will have a better answer.

By selecting a right answer with just 2 answers to your question, you indicate the search is over. Your selection of a right answer has a chilling effect on encouraging further discussion. You're misunderstanding how this community works if you think otherwise. I won't close this again, but I am doing nothing wrong here.

Where does it say that selecting an answer means my search is over?

See dictionary. . . . .

You can never find a answer, you can always expand on an answer and explain why. There will always be a "why?"

JUst verify with you, you can't mix different versions of Office 2007, even If you only take a few prgrams from each. Uninstall both versions and reinstall your original install copy, then it will work.

If I do that I would waste a license.

No you wouldn't, if you full uninstall a product it will free up the key again for another use. (personal experience, don't knock it)

You need to remove the unauthorized copy of Office 2007 Professional from your system, and perhaps reinstall & reactivate your authorized copy of Office Home & Student 2007, and try again. You can't mix and match like that with an unauthorized copy and expect to be able to take advantage of the Home & Student 2007 to Office 2010 upgrade.

Office 2007 professional is authorized.

(Aug 10 '10 at 08:55) Feras Feras's gravatar image

But I do believe that Office 2010 is still under beta testing...
