Re-serialize Office Applications

Mike Shanholtz -

Quit all Office applications. Trash the files listed below and then re-launch Microsoft Word. Your copy of Office will act as if it has been reinstalled and allow you to enter new serial number and registration information.

/Applications/Microsoft Office 2004 (or X)/Office/
    - OfficePID (normally an invisible file)

To show Inivisibles, this application works well:

iShow Invisible

    - Carbon Registration Database
    - Office Registration Cache
    - Microsoft Office Settings

Trash all above and then launch any Office application. You will be asked to input the new serial number.
