    hi,
    i've uninstalled office 2010 recently and now when i try to reinstall it, it won't allow me since i install it with a trial key.

    i have only singleimage version with sp1 and a trial key, i normally install it with a trial key, then i do ez-activator. setup doesn't allow installing trial version to the computer more than once, so it doesn't let me. i don't have non-trial key for pro-plus (the one at office 2010 repository doesn't work "with sp1" exe), and i can't download volume version since i'm on a download capped 3g connection.

    so does anybody have any idea how i can make the setup let me reinstall trial version?

    ps. i've uninstalled old installation with microsoft's fixit uninstaller. it was activated with ez activator. i've also uninstalled ez.

    because it is not a vl installer. it's a retail singleimage. untouched from digitalriver.

    yeah, i worded it wrong. the tool tells it got converted but actually it does not get converted correctly. you need 300mb of extra files for it to be vl, which i can't download.

    so, i've deleted hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\office and hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\office and it still won't install complaining trial has been installed before.
