Trial version of what?
Question Author
Microsoft outlook. So I have no excel etc at the moment.

I assume you mean office then (outlook is a program for dealing with emails, excel is a spreadsheet... they are both part of the office package)

anyhow the new version should install even if the old version is left on. have you tried it?

Hi Chuckfickins

Yes tried it several times. It says Encountered an error durring setup. They sent me another 25 digit code to download it again. And was exactly the same. What I dont understand why you cannot uninstall the trial version thought you uninstal any program?

-- answer removed --
have you tried installing over the other?

Due to the fact that I am unable to uninstall the trial version I have tried every permentation. Microsoft even sent me another 25 pin licence number for me to install the new one again. but ended back at square one! Surley someone out there can solve this one, even if it's uninstalling the trial version? Hope you can help.

Hi johnpol179

I have tried exactly that! but it will not uninstal the trial version. Thanks for the link

as an act of desparation you could delete the office folder from my programs

backup your registry
delete the

restart ...
and cross your fingers
it's a drastic solution ... and if you get it wrong ... you'll have to restore - or even rebuild the machine

I'm assuming trial version = new machine so
the other option is to take the machine back and tell them to fix it

oem versions are supported by the manufacturer
