Office 2010 KMS Key Activation

    Question

  • Trying to configure my Windows 2008/Windows 7 KMS host to also validate Office 2010 Professional Plus.

    (BTW: Server is not connected to the internet, so everything needs to done over the phone)

    Here are my steps:

    1. Download the "Microsoft Office 2010 KMS Host License Pack", says the host license files installed successfully, asks if I want to enter the Office 2010 KMS host key and activate over the internet. Even though I know it cant, I enter it anyway and try. It gives me an error number, which basically says it cant contact the server over the internet.

    2. Enter the "cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX". Returns: Installed product key <KEY> successfully.

    3. I then run "cscript slmgr.vbs /ato bfe7a195-4f8f-4f0b-a622-cf13c7d16864". Returns: "Error: Product Not Found."

    Not sure what to do next, or why its not working. My only guess is that the key is invalid, but doesnt step 2 verify that it is a valid key?

    Sorry Tylorwa, but you have misunderstood the information on that TechNet web page.

    KMS for Office2010 is %100 supported for WS2008R2, but is not possible for WS2008.
    KMS for Office 2010 can be implemented on any/all of these:
    WS2003
    WS2008R2
    WS2012
    Win7
    Win8

  • Well, I am using Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition for the KMS host.

    ok, it seems you've missed a couple of steps which are required for telephone activation.

    You need to do:

  • The first step in that section is

    cscript slmgr.vbs /dti bfe7a195-4f8f-4f0b-a622-cf13c7d16864

    Which returns

    Error: Product Not Found

  • Fixed. Problem was I was pasting "bfe7a195-4f8f-4f0b-a622-cf13c7d16864" from a notepad file, which was causing the error. After typing it in manually, it worked like a charm.

    Thanks for the help!
