    I installed Office for Student teacehr a few weeks back, I need to use excahgne as thats is our mailserver so I purchased a copy of Office 2008 full version with exchange.

    So I naturally went to App/Office/applications/ uninstall Office 2008, so I did that, emptied the recycle bin and restarted.

    I now go to attempt to reinstall the Full Version of Office 2008 and thigns looks fine until I get to the product key and the screen says your product key is ( the old product key) I am not able to install the new version becasue the system thinks I am reinstalling the student teacher version.

    How can I completely uninstall so I can upgrade my version of office?

    You must use the uninstaller that is included with Office:mac.
