If someone installs the Office 2007 Professional trial, and then buys the Student and Home edition, am I right in thinking that when they enter their key to activate it, it will disable the components they're not licensed for? i.e. the Pro version included Outlook, but the H & S version doesn't so will the license key disable this?

Hope that makes sense! :D

Generally speaking no - if you enter in the H&S key it usually advises incorrect key.

Your best bet is to either install the trial H&S then it will work - or uninstall the pro, and install the H&S. All documents etc, will remain intact.

Hmmm thanks WT - maybe I'm being thick, but the only link I can find is for the Office 2007 Pro trial - there's a H & S online demo, but that's about as much use as a chocolate teapot. . .

The other trials are not exactly easy to find - they ( MS) obviously want people to buy Professional - hence its easy.

BUT here are all versions (http://www.microsoft.com/office/trial/default.aspx) Select the one you want, you will need a Live ID to download them, but thats easy to make and is free. ( if you dont already have one that is) -- Enjoy

With OEM everything is installed, you put in the key which activates what you have brought and puts everything else into 60 day trial mode. Pretty sure there is a diffrence disk from H&S to all other versions IE H&S is one cd, SB,Pro, Ult is all on the other disk.

Unsure about retail and olp.

Have seen that the toaster shops are selling PC's with trial office 07 and know of at least 2 cases where the people set up outlook to do their emails and once trial period was up they went back to the shop and were sold H&S and had it installed and all their emails and contacts got wiped and they were not told this would happen. In both cases I only found out afterwards so wasn't able to advise them. But it does explain the mentality of toaster shops
