Microsoft Office 2013 - Activation Key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I teach at a small school in Missouri.

    After some updates last week, the computers in my business education laboratory are requiring re-entering an activation key for Microsoft Office.  Was there an update last week that caused this?

    I had to go to 27 computers and re-type in the activation key from when we first installed the software.

  • Hi,

    Does the activation key issue happen to all computers? What's the updates have you installed, for Windows or for Office? What's your detailed Office 2013 version, Click-to-Run or MSI version? Activated by Product Key or a Microsoft Account?

    Please go to Control Panel > Programs and Features, select Microsoft Office 2013, click Change > Repair (or Online Repair for Click-to-Run version) to have a try.
