Trying to find a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate on eBay for a decent price.

Below are 2 pictures showing the Microsoft COA's from the top of the packages.

This one is Ultimate with Accounting Express 2007 Printed on the cover:

Ultimate # 1




This one is Ultimate with Accounting Express 2008 Printed on the cover:

Ultimate # 2



My question is how can I be sure these are not Bootleg copies?

To me the first one looks more official than the second but both claim to be 100% legit.

The second may be newer as it has accounting express 2008 rather than 2007.

What ya think?

Thanks.

All Microsoft software releases now have a holographic style anti-piracy label (I believe). So it makes it difficult to tell off a still photo.

What's to say the image wasn't obtained online anyway?

I can't understand though why in the top photo

MADE IN PUERTO RICO

appears in quotation marks

I was wondering this myself but most of them are like this.

I would try the second one only because of the
higher SKU number.
Possibly a newer version?

Edit: Sorry I read it wrong and cant delete this post.

Hooterville,

Can I ask how you confirmed this?

Only in the case that in the future anyone else facing the same dilemna can do the same.

Cheers

I purchased the one in the second picture that had no quotation marks on the made in Puerto Rico and it is a 100% Genuine Microsoft product.

A friend purchased the other one and he is also confirming that it's a genuine Microsoft product.

Both copies installed and validated through Microsoft.
