I installed a new hard drive in my machine with windows 7. When I started up Office 2010 it asked for the product key. I entered it, it accepted it as valid and took me to the Install window. I clicked install, a configuration window with progress bar popped up, it filled....then nothing happened. I've tried this 3 or 4 times, tried running as administrator...same thing each time. Any ideas?

No it's already installed...but when you try to use it, you get the "needs to be activated' notice with the red bar across the top. But then once you follow the instructions, put in your key and it accepts it, it gives you a pop up window that says "install" or "customize" as your two options. I click "install" and then it goes to the configuration window with a loading status bar. Once the status bar is full the window closes and nothing else happens..but my copy of Office is still not activated and gives me the same warning and red bar next time I open it.
