leonard is on a distinguished road

Default Works great but....

The product worked great EXCEPT that my computer is a DELL and it does NOT return the actual product key. So, after installation, when you go online to "Activate" with Microsoft, it says you have an invalid product key.

I have also found 3 other products and they all return the same key (the one that Dell enters into the registry), so I guess I am out of luck?

OK, maybe I am not completely out of luck. Further web surfing has revealed that since it successfully installed, but does not want to activate, it is possible that I only need to call Microsoft and get a new activation ID?
