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:

And here is the answer I gave you in the other newsgroup to which you
