View Full Version : Installing MS Word 2000

23-07-2001, 02:19 AM
I have just uninstalled MS Word 2000 to try and sort out a problem of it locking up.
The word is part of MS Works Suite which was OEM on my computer. It has 2 boxes and 7 cds.
It asks me for a 25 digit number but the MSworks suite just has a 26 digit number on the cd jewel case.
Unbelievaly before it asks for the key numbers it opens word I can see the number and registration flash and my name but cant read the numbers in time.
The firm I bought the computer from MACROCOM have gone bust.
Please how can I get the rego number also how did I register it before!

To display the registration name and product id, open Word, go to help menu and select 'About Word'.

It wont let me open word until it it gets the reg number.

Hi. I have the same setup here. When you reinstall Word you need to use the Product Key number on the slim booklet that comes with the Works Suite 2000 called 'Discovering Microsoft Word 2000'.
Hope that helps.
