It's common sense that we need the Product Key to activate Microsoft programs while installation. As far as I am concerned the best course of action is to purchase a "boxed" version at an electronics store. Then you will have the "key" and the program on CD or DVD for reinstall later. That saves a lot of hassle later. For instance, if your hard drive crashes or you get a bad virus and have to reinstall your operating system you may have trouble reinstalling MS Excel again.
