Unable to Activate Project Pro 2010 Trial (0xC004C032)

    Question

  • We're trying to activate a trial of Project Pro 2010 but whenever we try to activate it we recieve error  0xC004C032 - "The activation server reported that new time based activation not available."

    I've tried reinstalling the key using "cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:XXXX..." but the activation error persists.  After using a different Live ID to get a new trial key I tried to use ospp.vbs again to replace the key but get 0xC004E01E - "The new product key cannot be used on this installation of Windows. Type a different product key. (AB-AB)"

    ospp license status info is as follows:

    SKU ID: 694e35b9-f965-47d7-aa19-ab2783224adf
    LICENSE NAME: Office 14, OfficeProjectPro-Trial edition

    Last 5 characters of installed product key: YM98K

  • Project Pro does not like some of the office module from 2007.  Be sure to remove all reminates of Office 2007 prior to installing trial version.

    Also, what version of the OS are you running?

    Is this on a VM and can you access the internet from the VM?

    Cheers!
