I'm not asking for a crack, if that's what you first thought when you read the title :P

I've got a legal copy of Office 2007 which I just installed on my machine with Vista, however in about a weeks time I'm going to format with XP. So, a question, if I activate it now, when I format and go back to XP, I should still be able to activate it right? It shouldn't care that I've switched OSes?

You just need the Enterp...Oh I see, you're not after a crack :P Right, in that case...I don't think it's a problem to activate it again - even if it refuses to activate online as it's already been activated, there should be an option to activate by phone, and you just have to tell MS that you needed to reinstall it - they have to reactivate it as many times as you want to reinstall it.

Clearly you're using Enterprise Edition then, which is the one that takes VLKs and doesn't require any activation :)

I think it's something that's MAC address/network based, since I completely switched computers with a copy of Office 2003 but kept the same wireless router, and it activated perfectly over the Internet on the new one.

When I read the title of this post, I thought you wanted a crack, since I didn't pay for my copy for Office 2007 :lol:

One thing, the serial I used worked on my machine but on another machine, it wouldn't activate :? Any ideas before the 50 (I think) run time limit is exceeded, or should I just buy the software? (I have a valid Office 2000 serial :P )

Try the serial on another install... I think MS added watermarks to the Office Installers, so that they can not only backlist a key but also an installer...

I have noticed the same trend...
I had a friend give me a companies vlk over the phone but it only worked with his installer... Even though mine was a vlk installer :?

activation checks hardwares, not windows, but windows could be include in the checking process.
It should be fine.
