    Because it's a requirement of the code to try and cut down on piracy so there's no way around it. It will happen everytime you reinstall it. :smokin:

    If you haven't changed the hardware, the original key should still work OK.

    Actually, because Office 2000 was Microsoft's first attempt at Product Activation, many times the same key wouldn't work :(

    They (thankfully) fixed the problem with Office and Windows XP :thumb:
