  1. Office 2010: maximum number of permitted activations


    .
    I have Office 2010 with Win 10 Pro.

    I used Macrium V7 to transfer a system image from one laptop to another.

    When I try to use Office, I get message saying "maximum number of permitted activations". Do I simply need to remove the license from my previous laptop? If yes, how do I do that?

    Thanks.
    .

    :)

  2. Windows 10 upgrade - Office problems

    After the upgrade to Windows 10 I was asked to enter my office product key when I opened Word and Excel. I did this but got an error "Your copy of Microsoft Office ....... cannot be activated because the specified Product Key has already been activated the
    maximum number of times permitted ......... "

    It appears as if Office has regarded this as a new installation.

    How do I get Office to work again?

  3. Office 2010 is not compatible with Windows 10.

    Office 2010 is compatible with Windows 10. Try phone activation to see if you get it reactivated:

    My Office 2010 says a 3 PC licence.
    You uninstall MS Office 2010 from the first PC to unlicence it and to re-use that licence for another PC, or use up one of the remaining installs if any.

  6. Sounds reasonable. However, I'd better wait for a day or two to see if there are any "non-destructive" solutions *Smile

    Thanks.

  7. I've just noticed that I haven't closed this thread.

    I uninstalled Office 2010 from my oldest laptop.

    I then used telephone automated activation. From memory, the only thing they asked me for was the 25-digit activation code.

    I was then able to install on my newest laptop.

    Thanks for all responses.
