    Fixing No License Message (97)

    I have a new computer that came with Office 2003. I needed to continue to run Office 97 for certain applications so I followed the instructions on the Microsoft Web site and removed Office 2003, installed Office 97, and then reinstalled Office 2003 on top of Office 97. Everything worked fine EXCEPT that I have multiple copies of Office 97 and I gave it the wrong key code when I installed it, the one for a copy without Access. I did not discover the mistake until after I was done installing all the software.

    I have the right key code but I don't want to have to go back and redo everything. Is there a way to just give Office the right code. When I try to start Access 97, it just tells me it has an invalid code and quits and never gives the the chance to give it the right one.

    Yea, I found that but it requires reinstalling Office and since Office 97 has to be installed before Office XP, it really requires that I uninstall and reinstall two packages. I was hoping there was an easier way.
