Office 2007 trial software must be activated, and valid for limited amount of time only. If it’s not activated, or has expired, the trial version of Office 2007 software will run in Reduced Functionality Mode, where Office 2007 will become a viewer, which means users have no ability to create, edit or save modifications to documents, although existing files or documents already created with the trial Office 2007 software won’t be affected.
Interesting point is that although the trial period of Microsoft Office 2007 suits and programs is typically 60 days, however, the trial period will only expire at the last day of the month within a user’s trial period. So, if a user activate the Office application (where the trial period begins) early in the month (but not on the first day of the month), he or she will have more than 60 days of trial period before it timeouts or expires. During the activation process, user will be notified of the date on which the trial period will expire.
Before trial period expires, the Activation Wizard will start display expiration reminder messages each time Office 2007 product is started or launched. Users can convert the trial Office products to full retail products by purchasing Microsoft Office System product at retailer or online, or through Set-Up Wizard to get a perpetual valid product key, and use the new product key to convert and re-activate the installed Office product, without the need to uninstall and reinstall the Office 2007 again (if both trial and full product purchased are of same version and language).
After the trial expires, if users choose to use the Office 2007 as the viewer for Office documents, workbooks, spreadsheets, presentations, projects or files, they do not need to uninstall the trial Office 2007 even though they do not intend to convert the software by purchasing Office 2007 license with product key which may costs a few hundred bucks.
