Default MS Word 2007 'modification not allowed document is locked'

I experiencing the same problem with new HP w/MS Vista, MS Word 2007 is

Default MS Word 2007 'modification not allowed document is locked'

Hi LindaB,

If you're sure the product has been activated and the trial period hasn't
expired, you might try a suggestion from one of Bob Buckland's replies to
someone. A slightly modified version of it is he

===========================================
"There are a couple of scenarios that can cause this. One of the most
common is a corrupted activation file, another is the software not 'passing'
one of the MS Genuine Advantage checks for Windows or Office (and those
aren't always correct g).


With all of the Office apps closed and in a profile that has administrator
privileges, use Start=Search to search for the file opa12.dat and rename it
to opa12.old, then restart the PC and open Word to see if you can activate
Office 2007."
===========================================

The full thread is he

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Ed
