  • MS Office 2010 detected hardware change You must activate MS office in 2 days. Just did that 3 days ago

    Motherboard failed. Put in new mobo (F2A85-M Pro) and cpu (A8-6600K APU), Installed W7 Pro x64  along with a couple hundred updates. Installed MS Office Pro And re-activated by phone. All OK.

    This Morning i updated BIOS and Drivers on ASUS website and re-started PC a few times. When I opened Outlook the preceding warning window came up.

    What now??? Do I re-activate again?

  • With elevated administrator rights (Run as Administrator) run the following from command line

    x86
    cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act
    x64
    cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act

    Thanks Milos,

    But I have been unable to make that work. I bit the bullet and reactivated by phone again.

    Hopefully for the last time.
