    I recently started a new job where we use the Office 2007 Professional SUite. I installed it on my work laptop, and the IT guys told me that I could use it on my personal laptop as well (Mine is running Office 2003) so that the versions would be compatable. Unfortunately, the license key that worked for my work laptop (running Windows XP) is failing (not a valid license key) when i run it on my home laptop running Windows XP Home.

    The IT guys don't seem to know why it isn't working - they use this same license for all of the inhouse laptops, and I'm running SP2 on my personal laptop so as far as I can tell I have met all of the requirements.

    Does anyone know why it won't take this license?

    Thanks,
    LFactress

    How many licenses did they purchase? There is usually some limit when companies buy them.

    Oh yea, I forgot to mention.

    If you do install the compatibility pack, you will be able to open up a 2007 document. And when you go to File >> Save as, it will have the option to save in a .doc, .xls, .ppt format instead of .docx, .xlsx, .pptx.

    Hope that helps
