Office 2003 EULA on Vista Ultimate

  Stuart 510 18:02 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??

You've upgraded the old PC that you had Office 2003 on to Vista? Then you shouldn't have to buy a new copy, it's still on the PC it was sold for. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office?

Hello - sorry for delay in posting, had to reformat after Nero 7 Premium went at bit haywire. I posted this query on the general formum and 'lotvic' came up with this brilliant answer:

""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.""
