You must enter the required serial keys.

Did your friend had it installed on his computer?

You are out of luck ! The licence is for one and only one computer, hence you must purchase the license from Microsoft. Seems that your deceased friend was not much of a friend.

Yes, it would be a brand new package. I recommend that you discard it. You can no doubt purchase a new package at your local software store, however, since your computer is old, there is a similar free version called OpenOffice which as a word processor, spreadsheets and much more:

You cannot locate the key on the computer, the key was written on a card. I repeat you must purchase the licence or use OpenOffice for free. On Feb 1st your Microsoft Office software will cease to function.
