Why Activate Microsoft Office 2010?

Please note that Microsoft Office 2010 Product Activation is not intended to prevent you from reinstalling Office 2010 on the same computer more than once – it’s intended to prevent you from installing Office 2010 on more computers than the license covers.

The goal here is to reduce a form of software piracy known as casual copying, which is the sharing of software in a way that infringes on the software’s license terms.

There are 2 ways to activate Microsoft Office 2010: over the Internet or by telephone. Until you activate it, Office 2010 will periodically prompt you to do so.

Activation is usually done either during the Office 2010 installation process or when you start any Office program like Word or Excel 2010, etc., for the first time after installation. The activation process is triggered when you enter a valid Microsoft Office 2010 product key for the edition you bought.

However, you may choose to do the activation at a later time, rather than doing it during set up or installation of Office 2010.

1.) Microsoft Office 2010 Product key activation over the internet

When you choose the activation over internet method, the activation Wizard automatically contacts the Microsoft licensing servers through your internet connection. If you are using a valid Product Key that has not already been used for the allowed number of installations, your product is activated immediately.

When you activate through the Internet, your product ID (derived from the installation Product Key) is sent to Microsoft. A response (the confirmation ID) is sent back to your computer to activate your product.

Note: Make sure there is an internet connection if you use this method.

2.) Microsoft Office 2010 Product key activation by telephone

If you choose to activate over the telephone, this mean you need to call the Microsoft Office activation Center and communicate with the customer service representative to get help you on this.

In the Activation Wizard, select the country/region where you reside and where you plan to use the product. Then, use the telephone number provided to call the Microsoft Activation Center. The numbers vary by product license and country/region.

You will be connected to a Microsoft customer service representative and he/she will ask you for your installation ID (displayed on your screen) and other relevant information. After your installation ID is verified, you will be given a confirmation ID. In the Activation Wizard, type-in the confirmation ID in the spaces provided at the bottom of the screen, and then hit Enter.
