    I don't think you're meant to do so. What is your purpose?

    Zave--

    I never say there is never a magic link to do about anything, but I know how you should handle this really quickly in under 5 minutes. Call any MS number, tell the screener you need to talk to activation and give them the story and they can make this happen I believe with the legit copy. That's the most efficient legal time-saving way to do this. They may make you unload the Office that's on, and reload your legit copy but maybe not. Even if you had to, it couldn't be all that bad--I mean Office 2000 has 3 SP's, Office XP has 2 SP's and for both there are a couple other critical updates, but we're not talking the many patches for XP, IE, ect. If there's a way to do it, they'll get it done.
