    Meh. Openoffice is great, don't get me wrong, but it's still can't compare to Microsoft Office. Openoffice :: Microsoft Office as GIMP :: Photoshop.

    why not just download a cracked full version, it not any more illegal as what your trying to do now:P
    if you really want a way to check it though, uninstall it, and search the registry for office 2007 and then reinstall it

    also, open office isnt that good
    office 2007 has a much nicer interface

    i cant get it,since i'm on dial up.
    i would like to see answers, not erasing the question by some!

    btw, i found this working, maybe for future searches:

    Hey i have a an easier way for those Aruns method didnt worked
    Once you download it ( office 07 beta installer) run the installer and put in any serial!!!! that works.

    ok after you install it dont open it!
    Run regedit - go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{30120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} Delete the key values 'digital product id' and 'product id'. close registry editor

    Now
    go to my computer>hard drive you installed it to>program files>common files>microsft shared>office12>office setup controller>proof.en.open the xml file in notepad and find a string named "Alwaysinstalled" which comes after setupxmlfiles
    ok change alwaysinstalled to neverinstalled and save the file. then enjoy!!!

    If any doubt pls feel free to mail me to sandraagarwal@yahoo.co.in
