Office 2010 [Virtualized] Automatic Activation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have successfully sequenced Project 2010 using App-V and deployment kit. I am using MAK Activation key (msiexec /i OffVirt.msi PIDKEYS=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx USEROPERATIONS=1).

    SCCM is used to deploy Project 2010. When user launches the application "Microsoft Office Activation Wizard" pop's up. Is it there is a workaround for automatic activation in App-V or in deployment kit.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello,

    Regardless if you use App-V or not - you should investigate VAMT to see if it fulfills your needs;

  • Hi Znack,

    Is there is any way that product will activate without user/adminstrators intervention?

    I am looking at, when virtual Project 2010 is launched by a user it should start activation without asking user because the MAK key would have been installed previously using deployment kit.

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    These are for normal office application deployment, I am looking for App-v Virtualized office 2010 deployment with automatic activation.

  • Whether Office is virtualized or not, activation is approached in the same way.

  • Hi,

     

    you can activate it with an OSD Script. My Script looks like this:

    <SCRIPT TIMING="PRE" EVENT="LAUNCH" WAIT="TRUE" PROTECT="TRUE">

    >SCRIPTBODY>if not exist C:\\temp\\Off10x86.PR\\license.txt cscript.exe %SFT_MNT%\\Off10x86.PR\\Office14\\OSPP.vbs /act &gt; C:\\temp\\Off10x86.PR\\license.txt</SCRIPTBODY>

    </SCRIPT>

    The first Part is the activation with the OSPP.vbs (integrated in the Office Package) and the second part is just a dummy file to prevent it from activating every startup.

    Hope i could help.

    best regards

  • Hello Fred,

    I think you would perhaps receive better replies in case you explained what you have attempted todo, how you are doing it and what the results were - and how you confirmed those.

    "Not working" usually doesn't offer any great insights about your specific environment.

    Have you attempted to run the script against a native Office installation to verify that it works?

    Hey Fred,

     

    but the activation works? You should set the LOCAL_INTERACTION_ALLOWED Policy to true.
