Hi,
Need to install Microsoft Office 2007.  Have legitimate Product key, but no CD due to being lost.  Can't download Office 2007 Trial  [only 2010 is available for download] and use the Product key.  Have another legitimate CD, but the original Product key isn't accepted.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Rather than roll the dice with an unofficial download, I would just ask Microsoft for a replacement copy of the media:

The version matters. If it's Office 2007 Basic then you can't use an Office 2007 Standard disk. You can use a different valid disk, it just needs to be the correct version.
