As regular readers of my blog might know, I always try to run beta software as soon as possible. This Time I am running office 2010 (twenty ten not twothousand and ten) beta. Last night I downloaded it from the Technet website. It installed, but the office professional plus did not give me the opportunity to enter a Product Key. so I assumed I could enter it later. when everything was installed, I tried to hunt down the location to add that key. it turns out that in every Office Application that is located under: File, Help:
There you should be able to activate the product OR to give in another Product Key. but too bad, my install only gave me the following screen:
A friend of mine, Helmer, posted a link that might do the trick, so I went to his Blogpost, but to no avail. It did not work.
SO I decided to repair my Install, for that looked like the problem in the screen above. I started the setup again and to my surprise I had an option that I needed:
So I selected the last option: enter a product key, and continued and there it was, the box to enter the Product key.
I entered the key and it even gave me the opportunity to change my setup by selecting options or deselecting option.
I restarted an office application and it was activated indeed…
I had the same problem, and I went to SharePoint Workspace their you have the posibility to fill in the activation key.
Nice . This has been wasted a lot of my time 🙂
