Hack to Activate Microsoft Office 2007 Evaluation Trial Version

Most suites or programs of Microsoft Office 2007 allows user to evaluate the product. The trial version of 2007 Microsoft Office system can be installed by using a 25-character trial product key available from Microsoft while you download the free Office software, and you can use the Microsoft Office 2007 suite or program with full functionality for 60 days.

You may have the Office 2007 CD and are able to install Office 2007 without entering product key. However, Office 2007 will work in reduced functionality mode, where it’s effectively just a viewer for Office documents. Beside, if you forget the trial product key, or don’t wish to register a Windows Live ID to get the trial key, here’s the trick to activate Office 2007, or more correctly, bypass the activation of Office 2007 60 days trial, and making the “trial” word disappear from the Office title at the top and suppress activation and trial expiry prompt.

Note that to use Microsoft Office 2007 beyond 60 days trial period, you need to purchase a valid license for it, available from Amazon or most computer retail store.

To use this hack to crack activation on Office 2007, you need to install Office 2007 without any serial number or product key. If you have installed Office 2007 with a product key or serial number, do the following to clean remove Office 2007 of product key:

  1. Close all Microsoft Office applications.
  2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start -> Run, and then type “regedit” in the Open box and press Enter key.
  3. Navigate to the following registry key:


    Note that inside the registry key, there should be another subkey that resembles the following:




  4. If there is more than one registry entries or subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, open up each subkey, and then identify the product by the ProductName value data until you locate the subkey for the product which you want to remove the existing product license key.

    For example:

    ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
    ProductName=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007

  5. Once found the correct registry subkey, delete the following values:


  6. Close Registry Editor.

Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:

  1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\

  2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select “Open With…” in the right click menu.
  3. In the “Open With” window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file. In Vista, if you can’t see the Notepad option, simply double click the “Other Programs” to unhide it.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

    </Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248″>
    <OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/>

  5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

    <OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/>

  6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
  7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.

As usual, as it’s a hack, and before you purchase a valid product key for it, you won’t be able to AND can’t access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.

    To everybody that says that this hack doesn’t work: you’re stupid. The hack does work. You have to realize that when you do this hack, that you can’t update. Microsoft plays little games on pirates by fucking with them when they find out that you hacked to get something: ie. Office 2007.

    They can detect that the copy was hacked very, very easily people. I’m not sure what they do, but I think that they cancel your subscription and then delete a component that allows you to uninstall which is why a lot of people are having the problem of not being able to uninstall. I’ve tried just about everything. Every thread of information that involves Office 2007 I’ve deleted and “Microsoft Office 2007 Professional” is still present in the uninstall list.

    I’ve deleted all of the other components of Office, but that still is present, and whenever I try to delete it, it says that the installation is corrupted. So the best thing for you to do people is, restart your entire system and try the hack again and this time DO NOT UPDATE IT! Microsoft is becoming smarter everyday, don’t forget it.

    Hi Franck, it’s St├ęphane from France.
    Why don’t you accept that in some cases, it doesn’t work? ;-(
    One more time, I repeat that I’ve followed your instructions word for word. And that it doesn’t work after 2 weeks.
    2 days ago, I’ve re-installed Windows, then Office.
    I’ve modified all the prof files (en, de, fr, es…), and I’ve blocked Word, Excel and PowerPoint with my FireWall.
    At the end of October, I will know if it’s efficient.
    If you’ve some other ideas or recommandations, don’t hesitate ;-)

    Hi, I know this is a weird question but I was just wondering if there is a way to get it to ever ask for the product key again? I deleted the product ID and DefaultProductID like you said to but now Im wondering if it will ask for one even when I have purchased it. Any help will be much appreciated!

    Blimey I am going to say this one last time. I can not be bothered with guys who dont follow the instructions, swear at you and swear that they did follow ALL the instructions. You try to help and all you get is abuse.

    You DONT use the uninstall from the control panel. One more time YOU DO NOT uninstall from the control panel. You download the uninstall software from microsoft then use that. You then manually uninstall EVERYTHING to do with office. MANUALLY understand ??? select file then select delete??? You then delete EVERYTHING to do with office from the registry. If you do a search in regedit and your hard drive and find office or word etc then you obviously have not deleted everything.

    The rest well and I am not going to bother telling you. Its all there. I have installed office on 5 different computers. Using professional office and the student and home addition. Did this some months ago and its still running fine on all of them. Including 3 of them that originally suffered from the greying out syndrome.

    oh yeah, you have to change the proof.xml file back to “AlwaysInstalled” from “neverInstalled” to uninstall the application from windows control panel/add-remove programs

    davo knows his shit!

    I did the hack 2 weeks ago and the office seemed like working until yesterday. Since then I can not edit or write any thing in any office products. It says that the document is locked.
    So I tried to install a new copy and enter a new serial but it gives my an installation error. I can not uninstall the office either.
    I tried to click on the activation button and enter a different Serial key but the button doesn’t function.
    So I’m stock. What’s the solution genius?

    OK, well I tried this hack a little while ago and just today it started acting up. I’ve had it and been connected to the internet on my wireless laptop and just today it’s in some mode where it just won’t do anything. I open Word and it doesn’t let me type or anything. I need this really bad right now people. If you’ve got any advice send it to Kendoitall12@hotmail.com.

    I’ve had it installed and used this hack over 2 months ago… my laptop is on a wireless feed and I haven’t had that problem. That you mention. What might have happened is that it tried to automatically update your Office software.. and the instructions specifically state not to do that. Try a clean uninstall and do the hack again… thats my suggestion… just make sure your PC doesn’t try to automatically update it.

    it surely works but I connected the word to the internet and since then I can’t uninstall it or even able to use any application like word excel, etc. can’t type at all.
    if you will use this hack make sure not to connect to the internet

    Okay, well yesterday it worked until I shut down. I followed all of the steps, and when I turned it on, it went back to pretty much a word/powerpoint reader! Is there some other thing I can do?

    Oh thank the lord for this! I didn’t have the money to pay $129.00 for the full version, and couldn’t find a non-virus ridden crack, so I tried this and IT WORKED! Now, I can do my Power Point Presentation for class.

    THANK YOU!!!!

    Since this crack doesn’t work except to waive the nag message, you need to change the “NeverInstalled” to “AlwaysInstalled” if you wish to uninstall. Otherwise, you’ll only get the error message.
