office 2010

If you do have the liscence key for office 2010 but dont have the original install disc, can you still get it installed on a newly re-built PC?

Is there a download link for the software for windows 7 .

I dont know the exact version of office we installed if there are multiple variants?

So you have to ring them with proof of purchase, theres no MS download site to get the software installer and then an option to enter the registration key during installation ?

Get quick recovery of individual SharePoint items

Free tool – Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint, enables fast, easy restores of SharePoint sites, documents, libraries and lists — all with no agents to manage and no additional licenses to buy.

Some manufacturers that sell PC's prebuilt with the OS, also include a trial version of Office, which you then activate when you buy a license key for it. So if you are restoring the PC from a recovery partition, Office might already be included, and then the key you already have should work. If you remember having office already installed when you bought the PC, and you later bought the license, then you don't need to download it again. Just do a factory restore and office should be there...

Or tool to dump ALL your liscence/registration keys to a file prior to rebuilding a PC?

After you click on download... you have to enter the key to continue.  

I'm guessing it will only let you download the version that is valid for that key.

The following can dump many keys... I don't know that it can necessarily dump ALL keys for all products... but it will work for most MS products:

SIW is a good utility which you can use to see what is installed and the License keys used. It also includes lots of other system information:

Ok, slightly off topic, but aside office suites and operating systems, what "types" of software on a PC typically have a registration/liscence key, when in the context of a home PC, not corporate.

Here is a list of office suites:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/suites/

Note: some of these are categorized by

Retail
Volume licensing
Other

Where Other is mobile or Starter editions.

based on your eariler comments... I assumed that you are dealing with a retail license.

I gave you a link to download a backup of office.   Did you try it?   Is it not working?  it should allow you to download the correct version for your key.

I am not clear on why you need to compile a list of all possible versions of office.

This is the "easiest" way to check the currently installed Office 2010 licensing info: http://www.mytechguide.org/8329/check-activation-type-license-status-office-2010-installations/

any idea how to check office 2003 also for both liscence type and suite version?

Would OEM office liscence work if we had to do factory reset build post malware?

 If so what info/data would we need?

SIW should show you the versions you have installed, also if older.

If you have the keys and the installation media, and you reinstall the OEM software to the same PC it was on originally, the licenses are fine.
