Office activation by telephone; next time activation by telephone agai

Recommended Posts

I was wondering;

I have installed my office cd several times because of using nlite and new os installations.

Now I have installed Windows 7 and office was prompting with the message that I already had installed office on another pc.

So I called (voicecomputer) and activated my office by telephone.

No problem ofcourse, but I was wondering if I have to do this every time no, when I install my office again....

Does someone know the answer?

I think you will.. as Im currently having the same issue.. Ive installed a few times over the last year or so, and now it is saying I have reached the limit, and have to call up.. I suspect I will now have to do this each time, unless there is a way of calling MS up and getting the slate wiped clean... I dont actually have it installe don any pc at all at the mo...

After you activate, 2 new files are saved in C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA.

One has a .dat extension and the other has a .bpc extension.

Copy and save the two or three small files.

The next time you install Office on the same hardware (preferably with the same volume ID on the system drive), just paste the files into that same folder and Office will be active again and will not require activation.
