    Software installations


    I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Laptop for which I have installed Windows 10. This machine does not have an optical drive.
    I have Office Home and Student 2007 for which I have downloaded the installation files. For this I provided Microsoft the 25 character product code.
    Upon trying to install thisdownload I get a message to enter the 25 character code. Here lies the problem where do I access a display to enter this code?
    I would be grateful for any help in this matter.

    Simply before installing, write the code down and enter the code when installing.

    That's the problem where do I enter the code. I do not get any display to allow me to enter the code.

    When I installed Office 2013 I entered the key after I installed Office. It's when you start to use say, word, you'll be prompted to enter a key.

    A screenshot or something would be helpful with better understanding the problem as I interpret the question wrong everytime I read it

    I have had reinstalled my Office 2007 (same version) many times. I always had a box to enter the key. Yes, mine has an optical drive, but I don't think that is the reason.

    On that screen, is it possible that the message itself is a link whereby clicking at it will provide you a box to enter the product key ?
    Is it possible that there is a link in that screen you have over looked ?
    Is there a scroll bar at the right to go through the entire screen ?

    When I get the message to enter the product code there is no evidence that the application installation is progressing. How do I tell if the installation is progressing as it doesn't appear to be.

    2007 version does not work the same way as 2013, apparently.
    You need to enter the key before you can start the installation.

    As I had said. I have had reinstalled Office 2007 many times. I am quite sure I know what I am saying.

    I'm sorry if I'm not being clear but in old windows OS's you could always see the application installation running but this does not appear to be the case in W10.I would enter the code if a screen was provided for me to do so but it's not. I've attached a screen print which is all I see. The only option is to close the message which ends the installation.

    I apologize.

    I have never seen this message before and I am using the same version.

    I was wrong and I take back what I have said.
    Sorry.

    This is what I will see when I try to install 2007 Home & Student :
