I downloaded Office 2010 Beta when it came out. I am now getting popups that I need to activate by tomorrow or it will be disabled. I don't remember ever getting any type of product key. What can I do to keep using Office 2010?

Same position here. You would have seen the product key on a web page after logging in to windows live (or whatever it's called), and before the actual download page. The page was mostly installation instructions with a product key at the top.

If you didn't bookmark, screenshot or copy it then you are almost certainly out of luck in a few days. Sorry.

can i reinstall the beta again at that point? – leora Dec 19 '09 at 3:47
I suppose so, but maybe delete cookies/use a different computer/different browser as it might be "one per user". Haven't heard that the beta test has stopped, but they might have finished. – outsideblasts Dec 19 '09 at 3:59
Actually, you can go back and get your product key still. Just go to and sign in with your Windows Live ID, and it'll tell you the key they originally assigned to you. – nhinkle Mar 17 '10 at 5:09
