Question Office 2010 Key Card - HELP!!

Hello group,

I purchased Office 2010 Home and Business Product Key Card (no media) thinking that it will work with my new build that I am just about to build. However, the box states:

"Designed for purchase with a new PC preloaded with Microsoft Office 2010"

I purchased all of the components separately at newegg.ca, so there is no preloaded software!!

Did I just make a blunder? If so, what is the correction?

Thank you,

The only thing I can think of is downloading the trial and seeing if you can put the key into that.

Try Office 2010 - Office.com

Yep should work with trial. If it doesnt call MS and they will help you.
