I purchased/received Microsoft Office 2007 Professional with my laptop last year.  Unfortunately I have now misplaced the original CD but do have the product key.  How do I go about ordering a new CD to re-load on my laptop (which needed repaired and was put back to its original state)?  I definitely had an OEM and not MLK software.  Is there a way to download this and then input the product key I have?  HELP!

You can download the office media kit. You can also buy the disks from them. Another option is to google for the office 2007 media kit. This is a set of office 2007 cds for use with the oem keys. It is an ms product designed for the standard office 07 oem licenses that no longer come with cds.

I should add OEM is MLK. MLK just means it didn't come with a cd. Big PC vendors still get the cds with it. For the smaller shops it is just a license file. Either way the MLK install media should work fine.

It actually was an OEM (came with a CD), we misplaced the CD/case when we recently moved offices.  Will this link still work in this case?

I tried the link and it stated the product key I entered is invalid.  I know it isn't...it's the product key when I check the About of my installed Office Suite.

I think you are looking at Product ID which is not the same as your cd key.

If you don't have the cd key that came with it google for rockxp. Rockxp is a free program that will give you cd keys your system is using for windows and office.

FYI symantec's av software considers this hacking software and will try to block it.

Some instuctions useing another program(I have not tried these)
