Upgrade Office 2007 installed to Ultimate

  johnem 16:30 07 Dec 2007

Afternoon all, just acquired new Toshiba laptop with the 60 day pre-installed office Pro 2007. Daughter at uni has been allocated Office 2007 Ultimate at special price. at present office Pro has not been activated, what will the procedure be to install Ultimate, do I need to uninstall the 60 day version first? or just install Ultimate over the top?

I am not sure, but be careful. Office 2007 offered to students is generally a pale shade of the full version.
This may not be the case, but worth checking.

The other thing to be aware of is the really cheap offers for students require extra procedures to validate the copy including an email address which is university based.

Thanks rawprans and anskyber for you valid concerns. The offer is the big steal as shown in the link. Daughter has valid uni e-mail etc so activation should not be a problem. Still concerned as to whether the Office 2007 pro has to be uninstalled first or just install new programme and let it take care of things.
