How to Activate Office 365 On Windows 10, 7, 8/8.1 PC – I have informed you about downloading Office 365 and how to install it using an IMG file that can be downloaded directly from the Microsoft database.
Best Ways to Activate Office 365 On Windows 10, 7, 8/8.1 PC
However, Office 365 that has been downloaded and installed has not been activated, so most of its features cannot be used, to be precise, it is only for viewing, if you have the money you can buy a product key. However, if you are experiencing financial problems, then buying a product key is not a good decision, especially since the price is not cheap.
Therefore I recommend using the KMS License Key for activation for Office 365 already installed on the computer. For those of you who happen to not know, the KMS License is actually synonymous with a free trial.
And this KMS License is completely free, also legal, and valid to use for only 180 days. But don’t worry, because the 180-day trial period can be renewed very, very easily, friends.
So you can continue to use Office 365 without having to think about updating as long as KMS is still active and all Office documents can be edited and modified, not just reviewed or read.
So how great is the ability of this KMS License? Of course, that’s why my friend recommends this method for all of you to follow now.
Enough with the introduction of what a KMS License is, so let’s go straight to the main point.
But beforehand it is recommended to do the following preparations so that the results are perfect and of course successful activation of Office 365 Professional Pro on your Windows 10, 7, 8/8.1 computer
How to activate Office 365 Professional Pro on Windows 10 Laptop PC
Okay, just go ahead, learn first, my friend.
Turn off Windows Defender
These are the steps that must be taken before activating your Office 365. For the steps please go to this page.
Remove the trial license on your computer Computer
This step is optional, meaning it is not mandatory, especially for those who use a trial license and it has expired.
However, if it is still valid, then you should delete it. Because in many conditions, after you activate your Office using the KMS License, important features will continue to be active but the license notification has expired (expired) will still be there, therefore if you use the free trial license Office 365 then it should be removed first.
Now get ready for your computer
You have to check your internet connection and make sure Windows Update Service is On. KMS License must be verified by opening KMS server.
So you just need to open the KMS server URL, which is, if it’s open and you can see its contents, your internet doesn’t block it.
After making preparations, now immediately follow each step to activate your Microsoft Office 365.
How to activate Office 365 with KMS License Key
This is a manual activation of Office 365 using the KMS Client Key.
- Open Command Prompt as Administrator.
First of all, you have to open Command Prompt with Admin rights, then follow all the step-by-step instructions. Please copy and paste the commands and don’t forget to click Enter afterward to execute the commands.
- Go to the Office folder.
If you install Office in the Program Files folder, the path will be “ %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16 ” or “ %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16 ”. This depends on the architecture of the Windows operating system you are using. If you don’t know, then don’t worry, you can run the following two commands. One of them must be right, and the wrong one will not work.
cd /d %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16 cd /d %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16
- Convert Office License to Volume.
Because your Office 365 is downloaded and Microsoft, it’s probably Retail licensed, if so to be activated it must first be converted to Volume, but this step is only optional, can be skipped if you want, but I recommend it. To convert to Volume, execute the following command.
for /f %x in ('dir /b ..\root\Licenses16\proplusvl_kms*.xrm-ms') do cscript ospp.vbs /inslic:"..\root\Licenses16\%x"
- Now activate your Office 365 with KMS License.
Make sure your computer is connected to the internet, then enter the following command into the Command Prompt.
cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:XQNVK-8JYDB-WJ9W3-YJ8YR-WFG99 cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:BTDRB >nul cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:KHGM9 >nul cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:CPQVG >nul cscript ospp.vbs /sethst:kms8.msguides.com cscript ospp.vbs /setprt:1688 cscript ospp.vbs /act
