Hello folks, newbee here, and this is my 1st post. I downloaded office pro 2010, from microsoft few days ago, I used the office 2010 toolkit dated 8-2-11 think its version 2.3 It validated my office 2010 pro plus no problems. I am running win 7 ultimate. Now for my question, I have read on here you need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, before using the office toolkit, but I did not install net framework 4.0, and it still validated my office 2010. Then I removed anything related to whatever the toolkit installed except for office 2010 of course. Not sure if I was suppose too....but I did. I thought once I my office 2010 was activated with the serial # I was all set?? I have updated office 2010 from microsoft, no problems. So......is my copy of office 2010 activated forever....or am I going to have problems down the road....meaning at some point will microsoft tell me its illegal copy or something???? Also, when looking in my registry file......it still puts in the word "Trial" after every entry related to office 2010???? I was hoping the toolkit would have removed the Trail word from my registry. So......is thier anything I should do now, or am I ok.....with my install of office 2010??? Thanks for any replys to my questions, Mike.
