MS Office 2010 Product Key

Bought the computer with MS Office Professional Plus 2010 installed. 

Now software is corrupted (programs/office/change - corrupted, reinstall).

Before removing and reinstalling, I want to make sure if have the product key on hand. 

Is there a way to get it from Lenovo or otherwise? Microsoft support cannot help (tried already).

I do NOT see a Microsoft sticker on the back of the computer.

Hi regulatorFix, welcome to the community,

 

The product license key would have been in the box or alternatively did you perhaps create a microsoft account in which case the key will be stored and retrievable through your microsoft account.

"In the Box" as in "Lenovo included a install DVD for MS OFFICE with the product" or more like: "Lenovo included a piece of paper with the MS Office Product key printed on it"?

 

What do you need to look for?

Microsoft didn't issue a lot of licenses including a disc for Office 2010, in the majority of cases it was just a Product Key Card in what I would call DVD packaging pretty much like this.  Inside was the product key with instructions to go to the site I linked to previously and download the appropriate version of Office 2010 after creating an account.

Re: MS Office 2010 Product Key

Office was already installed on my computer. 

So I did not activate with Microsoft (i checked the link, nothing there).

I will look for 'paperwork' that I may still have for the Lenovo (I hope).

Re: MS Office 2010 Product Key

Since the product is already installed, there is a good chance the key is still encrypted somewhere in the regsitry. There are several free programs that you can use to retrieve the keys on a system. You can do a search for such programs. Normally you would get a key with the pc you purchased, unless of course the office installed was a trial version.

Re: MS Office 2010 Product Key

Hello,

 

You may be able to use a program like Belarc Advisor, Magical Jelly Bean KeyFinder or Nirsoft ProduKey to retreive the Microsoft Office 2010 Product ID (PID) key from the system's registry.  You might actually want to try all three of them, for that matter, just to be on the safe side.

Re: MS Office 2010 Product Key

Exactly my situation: Lenovo preloaded Office 2010 and included a CD without a product key.
