Technet License Key problem with Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I tried to sequence Office 2010 with the license key provided by Technet (type=retail). I am not able to install Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V. I got the message that the key is not valid.

    I am using the PIDKEY=.... method.

    Does it mean that it works only with MAK Keys? Any suggestions how can I test the Office 2010 virtualization?

    Thank you and have a nice weekend :-)

    Franco

  • As per the KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/983462, the volume license version of Office 2010 is required.

    Also listed on the Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=479f12f2-5678-493e-bce1-682b3ece5431

    This download works with the following Office products: Office 2010 volume license client products
    I have a post detailing customising Office 2010 before deployment: http://blog.stealthpuppy.com/deployment/customising-office-2010-before-deployment. When creating a customisation file you get the option to choose to use a KMS key or input a MAK/retail key. You might get it to work by choosing the KMS option in a customisation file.

    So, did it work? And if so, does every client you start use up an activation of the TechNet key? I wouldn't really like to use up all my activations just for 1 test environment.

    I am trying to run Office 2010 in AppV 4.6 as well, as a test environment. I have a TechNet Direct (Retail) account, so I do not access any Volume License keys. And to be honest, I find it a bit weird that Office 2010 requires these keys. How are people with a retail TechNet Direct account supposed to test Office 2010 visualization with AppV?

  • Hi Ruud,

    unfortunately due project work for a client at the end I was not able to test  with Aaron suggestions. At the moment work is overhelming me. I am your opininon! Maybe MS want to avoid piracy (?)

    If I find time to test I will post it.

  • Can you clarify something for me Ruud?

    It appears you're using 'App-V for Desktop' which would only be available to you through the Microsoft Desktop Optimisation Pack - which is only available to Software Assurance customers. Therefore, why would a Software Assurance customer be using a "TechNet Direct (Retail) account" for Office 2010?

    Then again, you don't indicate whether you're using 'App-V on Terminal Servers' instead... :)

  • Ah! I see now. Still, it's only for test or evaluation purposes though, rather than a production environment. Shame :(
