Office 2003 Activation on Vista Ultimate

  Stuart 510 17:40 13 Jul 2007

Contacted Microsoft today and they had never seen this before and told me to buy a new copy of office!!!

I had XP home with an original OEM version of Office 2003. I have upgraded to Vista ultimate (X64). Office installs fine and opens, it asks me to accept the EULA and then activates and tells me it was successfull. However ever time I now open any office application I have to keep accepting the EULA but it keeps working fine - anyone any ideas??

from microsoft forum click here
""1. Go to your start menu and enter "winword" in the search box
2. Right click and select "Run as administrator"
3. When Word starts, just click accept
4. No more nagging message.""

""give yourself permission to modify the registry when using office so that office can make the changes in the registry to record that you have accepted the EULA""

I've been having the same problem every time I started Adobe Photoshop. Followed Lotvic's link, problem solved.

So thanks to Stuart 510 for posting the thread and to Lotvic for providing the cure.
