  • Hi, did you purchase a product key for Office, or are you using the preload/trial edition?

    Usually, the product key sticker attached to a computer is only for activating Windows, not for Office.

    If you enter a product key, and it is not accepted/validated, or, the product key is accepted but will not activate, you can use this article to help diagnose:
