The more I read your responses, the more I respect you. I've seen others
telling people they don't need to dump the trial. I recommend they do and
was beginning to feel like I was singing a solo. Thank you for making the
"Uninstall the trial first" song a duet. :-)

Uninstalling the trial version will remove any leftover vestiges of the
timebomb. Always uninstall the trial (user data is never touched or
removed) and install the retail version you purchased.

| I downloaded Office 2007 Professional awhile back. My trial is about
| to expire, and I just bought the retail box version upgrade.
| I have just gotten everything like I want it... settings, email
| accounts in Outlook, autocorrect entries in my normal.dotx and
| normalemail.dotx, etc.
| I REALLY do not want to have to uninstall the trial and reinstall
| from the box.
| Can I just use the box product key to activate this trial version???
| I noticed that uninstall was suggested to another person who had a
| student version, but...
| Someone please tell me yes... :-)
