  • Hi,

    Which version of Microsoft Office are you using? If you are using a Volume License copy of Office 2016, you may try the following workaround and see whether this issue continues:

    (Important Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it.)

    To resolve this problem, export the following registry keys and delete from computer.  

    1. Close activation screen.
    2. On the Start menu, click Run.
    3. Type regedit, and then press Enter.
    4. Select the following key in the registry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\OEM
    5. Right click the OEM value and click File>Export.
    6. Save the key
    7. Once the key is backed-up, click on Edit>Delete
    8. Repeat steps 4-7 with following key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\OEM Exit Registry Editor

  • Hi, I have this problem but my registry seems different:
    there is no OEM folder under Common, only FileIO, Filter and InstallRoot.
    Is there another fix or have I missed something?
