    i have been using microsoft office 2000 - but was unable to fix the error that prevented "detect and repair" to work. i had downloaded the windows redistribution installer 4.5 but i still could not find the data1.msi. so i decided to uninstall and reinstall by office 2000.

    well, of course, now that i uninstalled it, i am unable to find my product key. even though i had the validiation before, i assume that i'm just out of luck.

    so i download the trial of microsoft office which is way too user friendly for my tastes. i feel like i am in an alien program. i never thought i'd be the type of person who doesn't like change. (i hope it isn't because i turned 60)

    two questions (oops 3 questions- if i do a restore will i get my old office back? will i be able to find my product key in the registry? are there any other office programs that are not so user friendly that you can recommend? Sidepart: i do not like the fact that no where could i find the cost for the trial verison of microsoft. is that legal?

    I enjoy your site - i also am having some help in the game section - unrelated to my problem shown above.

    thank you for your help - joni

    if i do a restore will i get my old office back? NO, as a System restore only restores SYSTEM files NOT program files.

    will i be able to find my product key in the registry? Not if you uninstalled the product.

    are there any other office programs that are not so user friendly that you can recommend? There are others but I will not use them

    Sidepart: i do not like the fact that no where could i find the cost for the trial version of microsoft. is that legal? The trial version is FREE but may be used for ONLY 60 -90 days.

    thank you for your input!

    although it may be a free trial - it is limited - i like to know upfront how much the product will cost not after the 60-90 day free trial. you tend to get used to something and then you want to buy it.

    well, i'm sure i'll find my product key before it expires.

    have a wonderful day - it's gorgeous here in indiana.:)
