When you try to start a 2007 Microsoft Office program, you receive the following message:

Your beta software has expired. Use Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel to remove the beta software from your computer.


This behavior occurs because the Beta 2 version of the 2007 Office program has expired. The Beta 2 version of the 2007 Office programs expire on the following dates:

  • 2007 Microsoft Office Beta 2: February 1, 2007
  • 2007 Microsoft Office Beta 2 Technical Refresh: March 31, 2007


To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the Beta 2 version of the 2007 Office program from your computer. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
    2. In the Currently installed programs list, click the Beta 2 version of the 2007 Office program that is installed on the computer, and then click Remove.
    3. When you are prompted, click Yes to remove the program.
  2. Upgrade to the release version of the 2007 Office program. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
