    Can I Activate MS Office WITHOUT a Microsoft Account?


    Had a trial version of Office on my tower - a 64 bit Home that was set up with only a local account. The trial expired so I bought Office - Home & Student 2016. When I click on one of the desktop icons for any of the components of Office I get a message box telling me that my subscription has expired. I have 3 choice boxes:

    • Buy - I want to renew or buy Office
    • Enter Key - I have a product key
    • Sign In - Add this computer to an active account

    Buy takes me to a screen where they want me to RENT the damn product. Enter Key takes to an entry screen where after I input my key it wants me to sign in to a Microsoft Account, which I do not have and do not want. Sign In is obviously not the answer.

    :)

    HTC HD2 contacts

    Hi there, I am doing as you said, but when started to configure the unit in Windows Mobile Device Center, the clickbox for contacts, calender etc. in outlook stated that Outlook is not installed (same as first time) and the only clickbox I can activate is
    Mobile favorites, Files and Microsoft Office OneNote.

    I just remembered that I have two versions of MS Office on my computer.

    Can there be any conflict beetween my two versions of MS Office (home & Student without Outlook and MS Home and business 2010)? Should I uninstall my old office version?

    One needs the MS active sync so it can sync it to MS outlook! Active Synch version depends upon MS office version. What ver of MS Office are you using? You can download the latest version of Active Synch from Microsoft site if you have old version or no
    office suites installed.

    Can I Activate MS Office WITHOUT a Microsoft Account?

  5. I run Office 2016, after installing it and launching any one program the first time, it asks for my account info for the subscription version. Office 365. I can though click the option to enter a product code, which I do as I have MSDN. When I do that all it does is verify the product code and activate Office. I don't get any more prompts to enter my online account info? Mine is Office Professional Plus 2016 though, if that makes a difference. Maybe your key doesn't match the currently installed version?
