    I purchased a new computer and ordered it w/ Works thinking I could use my
    Office 2007 Upgrade CD I used on my old computer (to upgrade from Office
    2003). Apparantly that won't work?? It says I don't have a valid Office
    copy on the new computer and it doesn't recognize the Works either. I
    thought you could install on 3 computers?? My old computer had OEM installed
    software which was Office 97 upgraded to 2003, to 2007. Do I need to buy a
    full copy for the new computer??? Thanks in advance.

    You need to run MSUpdate for the Works patch

    OK, downloaded and ran but it asks for the Works CD which I don't have as it
    came preinstalled on the new computer. Any suggestions?

    Did you save the file to the computer and then run it or did you try to run
    it from the download page? If from the download page, re-download to the
    computer's hard drive and run from there after disconnecting from the
    internet, turning off the antivirus program and firewall. This patch will
    usually fail to run properly from the run button on the download page.

    If the above fails, post back.

    If that fails I would contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you
    can get a copy of the Works disk or fail that, Amazon has Works 9 for sale
    at $37.XX with free shipping (yes I know you have already purchased it once
    but as an OEM version.)

    You seem to be obsessed with OEM stuff. There is no such thing as OEM.
    Monkey bastard. Get this in your head!! You can prove it by downloading an
    OEM from piratebay and install it on your system. It is as simple as that.

    You .better get a new job with Peter Foldes in his sex business because you
    don't have any brains!


    Nutter b@astard.

    Yep, saved it to the desktop and then ran it. I will try your suggestion to
    download to the drive. Thanks.

    OK, downloaded to hard drive and then ran it. Says it needs the CD to work.
    Guess I should have just got it installed on this computer and been done with
    it. Thanks for the help.
