Office 2003 EULA on Vista Ultimate

Contacted Microsoft today and they had never seen this before and told me to buy a new copy of office!!!

I had XP home with an original OEM version of Office 2003. I have upgraded to Vista ultimate (X64). Office installs fine and opens, it asks me to accept the EULA and then activates and tells me it was successfull. However ever time I now open any office application I have to keep accepting the EULA but it keeps working fine - anyone any ideas??
Thanks
Stu

You've upgraded the old PC that you had Office 2003 on to Vista? Then you shouldn't have to buy a new copy, it's still on the PC it was sold for. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office?

Hello - sorry for delay in posting, had to reformat after Nero 7 Premium went at bit haywire. I posted this query on the general formum and 'lotvic' came up with this brilliant answer:

""1. Go to your start menu and enter "winword" in the search box
2. Right click and select "Run as administrator"
3. When Word starts, just click accept
4. No more nagging message.""

WORKS AT TREAT

THANKYOU ONCE AGAIN!!
