Today, Boss call our team to his room. He said that he will make presentation of Office 2007. Sigh, I think it just another new version of MS Office. Until all team complete he show about MS Groove, about how collaboration looks like using groove. Wow, very good tool, all task can be synchronized using groove. I choose playing chess 🙂
After taking little team meeting I decide to upgrade to Office 2007 and I’m wrong again. Other component of Office 2007 are great too. No more question and delay time to upgrade to Office 2007 😉
Before upgrade here’s the requirementsÂ (taken from here) :
CPU : 500MHz CPU minimum
RAM : 256MB RAM minimum
Hard drive space : 2GB free hard drive space for installation; final amount used depends on which features are installed
Media driveÂ : CD or DVD drive
Monitor : Monitor capable of 1024×768 resolution
Operating system : Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later
Browser : Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, 32-bit browser only
I myself use this :
For quick overview how to upgrade from MS Office 2003 to Office 2007 I make a few screenshots :
My friends laptop got crash till he must buy new harddisk, before erase and completely destroy the harddisk he ask for his CD key.
He use original Windows XP Professional, same as me ( I use campus agreement hehehe)
After doing search in internet I got few software that able to retrieve Windows XP key or related software:
1. Keyfinder, download here
The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Windows Vista, Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007.
2. RockXP, download here
Small Warning : RockXP is a tool that allow you to retrieve passwords. To do that, RockXP use a third party tool called Pwdump2.exe, an opensource software (Sources are included in RockXp). This tool retrieve HASH password of Windows. Unfortunatly, some Antivirus detect this tool like a Virus, but it’s not.
RockXP allows you to:
– To retrieve and change your XP Key
– To retrieve all Microsoft Products keys
– To save your XP activation file
– To retrieve your lost XP system passwords
– To retrieve your lost RAS (Remote Access Settings) passwords
– And to generate new passwords
Those two software will work fine as long operating system goes well, for corrupting system then this articles might be usefull.
Windows XP and Vista Product Key Recovery
Quote from author site :
There are many programs available for extracting the product key from a Windows XP or Vista installation. The only problem is that they generally require the computer to be functional to run. These programs are useless if the operating system is corrupt and the computer will not boot into Windows. Fortunately, there are other options. This article explains how you can retrieve the product key with just the ntuser.dat file from the machine. You can also download a stand-alone version of my decrypter tool.

VirtualBox 1.4 released, download last version from here
For windows host click here
This new version brings hundreds of improvements, more than any update since the first official release in January 2007. Among the new features are full support for 64-bit Linux hosts, RDP session shadowing, clipboard synchronization and easier Linux host interface networking. In the storage department, VirtualBox now supports VMware disk images (VMDK) natively and can give virtual machines access to physical disks and partitions ("raw disk support"). The graphical user interface has received more polish and has now been translated into 12 languages (German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Arabic, Russian, Japanese, Traditional Chinese and Chinese). Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) and Xandros Desktop 4.1 are now officially supported; support for FreeBSD and OpenBSD guests has been improved.
As with its predecessors, VirtualBox 1.4.0 is available both as Open Source under the GPL as well as under a commercial license which, in most cases, allows you to use the product free of charge.
For user with 1.3.8 version, quick way to upgrade is by uninstalling 1.3.8 and reinstall 1.4, no reboot needed. (Forum)
