Product Activation

Microsoft Office can be installed as a trial version and can be activated later depending on the necessity and likeliness to use it. For this purpose Microsoft Corporation has introduced the trial version and that can be used for a period of 60 days and later on if we like the product we can continue using it by purchasing the key for the full functional program. Not only Microsoft but each and every branded company requests for an activation of their products to verify that we have purchased a genuine branded product of that particular company.

Microsoft Office product activation is done to verify that our installation is performed with a genuine Microsoft product. It has following features and uses:

  • Product activation is an anti-piracy technology that is designed to verify that the product is legitimately licensed and no personal information is sent to Microsoft.
  • Product activation is required for all licenses that are purchased through retail distribution.
  • Product activation validates that the product key has not been used on more personal computers than are permitted by the end-user license agreement.
  • If you are activating the Product Trial Program version, you can activate your product only through the Internet that to with a trial key generated by the Microsoft.
  • It will ensure that the product being downloaded is free from all viruses, spyware or any kind of infections.
If you use the telephone to activate your product, you provide an Installation ID code. In return, you receive a Confirmation ID number. This type of activation is done through a Microsoft Customer Service Representative and takes a few minutes. If you choose to activate through online it will be done automatically and does not need any personal information except Country or Region.

During product activation, the Office Activation Wizard creates a hardware identification that represents the configuration of your computer at the time of activation. This hardware identification is not unique. It does not include any personal information, any information about software or data that may reside on your computer, or any information about the specific make or model of your computer. The hardware identification identifies only the computer. Additionally, the computer identification is used only for activation.

During product activation, you may also provide your personal contact information if you want to register the product with Microsoft.

The Office Activation Wizard can detect and tolerate changes to the configuration of your computer. Minor hardware upgrades do not require reactivation. However, if you make major changes to the computer over time, you may have to reactivate the product.
