Microsoft Office Professional 2010 Key issues

I have a card with a Microsoft Office Professional 2010 serial number on it. I want to use it but when I download Office 2010 professional. Its a professional plus install and my key says "this key is not associated with Microsoft Office 2010". So how can I use my key?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A little ways down you will see a section:

Download or get a backup for Office 2010
You can also download and order backup copies of Office 2010 products from this site, provided you have a valid Office 2010 Product Key.

This will have a Download button that will take you here (assuming are in the US, if not use the button from the URL above:

This should get you the software you need.  You cannot use the key you have with the Pro Plus as the Pro Plus is a Volume License only offering and requires a different key.  You either have a Retail or OEM provided Keycard or Disk.
