How to reinstall Microsoft Office 2007 that came preinstalled on a computer without a CD

Updated on May 6, 2009

Problem:

I have encountered this problem several time so I figured I would put a solution out there. The problem that on newer computers that come preloaded with Microsoft Office 2007 they are not including an installation CD for Office. I have seen this with HP, Dell and Lenovo. If you need to rebuild the computer to solve a problem or have a hard drive failure, they are not providing a CD from which to restore MS Office 2007. The Install key is usually on a Microsoft sticker on the outside of the computer case but without the CD you need to find another way to get the software. I found it on the web but it was not easy.

To download the software install package for Office 2007 you go to http://www.microsoft.com/office/backup

You will need to put in your purchase date, Office package and the install key (usually found on the side of your computer).

 You only need to download both files if you have the higher levels of Office (Small Business, Professional or Ultimate). Even then you only need to download the second file if you plan on using additional capabilities such as Business Contact Manager.

I hope this helps you with this issue. If you need more help please feel free to contact us:

      Yep.. Andrew is correct. Allowed me to download office 2007 for free with my product key. ****if you don't have your product key**** Download Belarc Advisor... Belarc.com .... It's free.. . It will list all of the product keys on your system as well as all other system info.

      You're a genius Andrew - saved me a whole lotta hassle and expense too: I already bought the 2007 version why should I have to pay for basically the same thing 2010 or 2013 version. Thanks!

      This link will let you download 2007 versions of office, including OEM licenced. Well, it worked for me today.

      Guys, this solution is old and directs to a 404 link. All other links here are SPAM or 404's too. What a shame... I am hunting but still cannot find any way to download a non-current OEM licenced version of Office!

      I've been using the beta for months now and soon it will be my pleasure of owning the final release of Microsoft Office 2010. Office applications were always Microsoft's strength and they still show no sign of weakness in their latest edition. It's, as always, a great improvement over the last version, which in this case would be Microsoft Office 2007. http://www.getsoftsnow.com/

      Backup installation files for many Microsoft products in 38 languages can be downloaded from the Digital River servers. That includes Office 2007, 2010, Windows 7, Expression Studio and Streets & Trips. I've been evaluating the download links for some weeks now, and tried to order them somehow. The full lists can be found here: http://www.heidoc.net/joomla/en/technology-science...

      i have had my laptop for over 90 days and wont let me download Microsoft.. what do i do?

    • profile image

      Nick 7 years ago

      Thanks for the info, the only issue is the 90 days limit, if you have purchased the office license more than 90 days from the time you request to download, MS doesn't let you to download the backup copy, luckily we have just purchased another laptop recently and I used the license key it came with to download a backup copy for an older computer we purchased last year

      not sure if this will help anyone but the file name for 2007 small business edition is: X13-82303.exe
