Ok, do you still have the disk sleeve with the product key on it?

no, I don't have the disc but I do have the product key.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, the product key only works with that particular disk, you cannot use the key with another disl.

Did you lose the disk? And where dd you purchase it from?

I've talked with Microsoft and found out that nothing will restore the program I have. Thanks for your help but I'm opting out of our conversation. I don't expect a refund. I'm acknowledging that I agreed to pay for this effort and I'll just write it off as the cost of business. Thanks anyway.
