View Full Version : MS OFFICE 2000 REGISTRATION FAT32 or NTFS?

20-10-2001, 11:02 AM

Due to the nature of the event, Im
having trouble registering the 'Microsoft Office 2000' Professional product.

Im uncertain to explain why this has happened to me, whereas I haven't
ecountered or experienced this since purchase of this product in 1999.

I have a 'dual boot' operating system; Windows 98 and Windows 2000

Since having Windows98 for the last 3 years, Ive had no probs. Windows 2000 on the otherhand in the last 5 months or so, no probs....this was because I was using FAT32

I decided earlier this morning to upgrade to my Windows 2000 to use a NTFS system and now I have this problem.

Confused? Same here! Surely, this can't be because of a different file system implemented?

At the moment, I tried reinstalling and so on to no avail? So i tried again with both systems; WIN98 and WIN200 using FAT32, yet again Im successful?

Any ideas anyone
Most appreciated.

Ok, if you had 98 on C:\ and 2k on D:\(ntfs), if you went to use office 2000 in windows 98, and it was installed on D:, it would not work, because win98 alone, cannot read ntfs partitions.

Thanks Dylan!

I managed to resolve the situation by using a compiled list of other 'key numbers'in turn confirmed this to be a success!

And installed office again on Win98 without probs...

Yet again, Im still mystified why the product key wouldn't allow me to register successfully? As I have bought the product with all licences!!!

Even the Microsoft Activation unit couldn't understand that too....
