Hi<
I am trying to install Office 2013 and receive this.

"Error 25004. The product key you entered cannot be used on this ...
Error 25004. The product key you entered cannot be used on this machine. This is most likely due to previous Office 2013 trials being installed.

I uninstalled (also deleted Office15 folder), reboot and reinstalled but failing still.

Any help..

regards.

This is based on Office 2010, but I'm guessing 2013 would be the same:

1) Click Start->Run...->type regedit and press Enter.

2) If these two registry subkeys exit, right-click on the registry subkey and click Delete to delete those keys

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office


3) Open Windows Explorer, and then browse to the "C:\Program Files" folder

If it exists, rename the "Microsoft Office" to "Microsoft Office OLD"

If it exists, rename "OfficeUpdate" to "OfficeUpdateOLD"

If it exists, rename "OfficeUpdate15" to "OfficeUpdate14OLD"


4) Click Start->Run...-> type "%Temp%" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter. Empty the Temp folder.
