Hi all,

I bought Office 2000. I have 2 computers. I installed on both of them, no problem. Though i have the message that asks me (each time i open excel, word, etc.) --> you need to register. You have 48 tries to go before you can not use the software. The tries started at 50, and each time i open an office app. the number decreases.

I can register it once, but not twice.
Is there any registry key i can delete to get pass this ?

Thx

What you are asking goes against the policy of this site if the answer is anything other than ...yep, you need to register it twice, and probably pay for a second license. We don't do cracking here...

You sure you didn't get Office XP? 2000 doesn't require you to register to work ( though if you do so , supposedly you'll get MS support http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif )

This is the part of MS's new strategy i totally disagree with; if you have purchsed an OEM product-the activation should not be necessary and using only the key provided should be enough to verify your ownership.

Of course their argument is that they've been doing this and people stil pirate it, or install it " illegaly " on more than one PC.


Solution: sell it for less than a new PC costs, and people ( and this includes Big Businesses ) wouldn't feel the need to " pirate " the product.
