XP Student Pack, Vista and Product Key

I have installed XP student pack on a laptop with Vista OS. No problems with installation but each time I open Word I'm asked for the product key. Is there a way round this?

The software is legit. No doubt about that. Just don't want have to keep inserting product key every time I open Word. Is this another one of those infuriating security messages that Vista has?
