    Getting ready to do a fresh install for my 2nd client ever and there's an OEM MS Office 2010, Office 2010 Click to Run, and Office 2010 Starter. The client's never used office on this pc before and doesn't plan on it in the near future. My question is, when I do the fresh install, how can I re-install these 3 in case the client wants to use them later. Client has no discs.

    I found this link which linked to a backup Office 2010,

    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/microsoft-office-2010-backup-FX101853122.aspx

    but it doesn't say OEM, which I suspect is going to be different. This being only my 2nd client, I've never seen the OEM version before, all the pcs I've worked on with family/friends, they've used retail or else I built them the pc with retail MS Office.

    After clicking the Download button in the link you posted; there's an info link on finding the product key. Regarding new computers with Office preloaded (OEM), it has this to say:

    Did you ask your client if his computer came with a product identifier card?

    Yea she said she didn't have a card or a product key. She said her mom purchased the laptop along with a laptop for herself and shipped the laptop to my client (Georgia to CA). I looked at some documentation my client left in the bag, and the software is just the Starter Office 2010, with just Word and Excel, and had ads so it's not the actual Office Suite. The only sticker on the PC is the W7 OEM product key, so her mom must have the card back in Georgia. I'll give her a call tomorrow to find out if she can get a hold of the key or if she even cares if it's installed or not. Thanks for the help.

    Put LibreOffice on it instead. You'd be doing her a favor.
