    Neither Microsoft Office nor any of its components come with Windows
    7, nor has it ever come with any version of Windows. If you have
    Office on your new computer, almost certainly your vendor bundled a
    trial version of Office with it. The reason you are now asked for
    the product key is that your trial period has ended. If you want to
    continue using it, you need to buy it and thereby get a key.

  • Hi,

    The key is located on a sticker with the Office installation disks when you purchase a computer from a system builder with software included. (Dell, HP, Toshiba, etc.)

    If you purchased this from a smaller or local system builder, you must contact that vendor for the documentation and license key if was not included. Same if it was purchased privately.
