    question about installing trial version of microsoft office 2007

    Please help! Any help woud be appreciated!!

    I just bought a new computer that came with Vista Home Premium. It had a
    trial for 60 days for Microsoft Office. I ran that and pulled up the
    Activation Assistant.

    There are two steps. It says for the first one to click and it will give
    you your trial activation key online. Then once you have that you can click
    the second step which says it will launch microsoft office and you will enter
    your trial key.

    When I do that however, it gives me this message:
    The Microsoft Office Activation Assistant was unable to launch your 2007
    Microsoft Office release. Please re-enter your selection or open Microsoft
    Office from the directory. If the error continues, go to
    www.microsoft.com/office/pctrial2007 for additional information.

    I have looked all over the microsoft web-site and can't find ANYTHING to
    help me. It's so frustrating!!! Especially when you have to PAY to contact
    any support services..

    Any help would be greatly appreciate!! I am in grad school with tons of
    papers to write and would love to be able to use 2007 for a while instead of
    works...

    Thanks in advance.

    Next time please do not multipost. If you must send the same message to
    different newsgroups, then crosspost judiciously. Here are links to explain
    that:
