"Invalid character" in activation attempt?
MS certainly makes it difficult to register!!! I bought a copy of Office
2007 Home and Student Edition today at a local Staples. I finally got it
installed and then went to activate it. I entered what I THINK is the
Product ID number. It is in the following general form:
xxxxx-xxx-xxx-xxx Xxx-xxxxx (the capital "X" is really the character
uppercase letter X)
When I first tried to enter the character (which appears to be the numeral
"1") in the second spot of the third field, I got an error message that this
was an invalid character. I backed out and tried again. This time I got the
same message when I tried to enter the first character (which looks like the
numeral "0") in the FIRST spot of the third field!!!
I did a search for help and am informed that the product ID number should be
in the following form: (these are NOT my number)
Has anyone else had this problem?
