    Office 2016 activation failed


    I am using Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Build 14295 on the slow ring.

    I have purchased Office 2016 from Microsoft online through my education account and they have provided me a key to activate Office.

    When I finish installing Office 2016, I get this image: https://i.imgur.com/zzzmjEX.png
    I am under the impression that the center image should be showing something else, other than a windows into my desktop wallpaper

    When I enter my product key, I get this error: https://i.imgur.com/Jvba6E7.png

    If I click repair now, Word restarts and I am presented with this: https://i.imgur.com/osLfSFq.png

    Clicking repair now again, Word shuts off. If I click on a Word doc I am presented with: https://i.imgur.com/y4NKsyS.png

    And if I click Accept: https://i.imgur.com/YB1Brmv.png

    What is going on? What can I do?

    Thank you

    :)

    Hi Valmik,



    This issue occurs when Office activation fails. We would recommend that you use the Activation Troubleshooter for Office 365 and Office 2016. This troubleshooter runs on Windows computer and can fix activation errors for Office 365, Office 2016, individual
    Office 2016 apps, and Outlook. You can check out this
    link
    for the steps.

    Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further inquiries.

  3. Word won't start. It says it's unlicensed. I have just installed (and paid for!) Microsoft Office.

    If Office activation fails, you'll see Unlicensed Product or Non-commercial use / Unlicensed Product in the title bar of your Office apps, and most features of Office are disabled. To restore all features of Office, you'll need to fix the problem that's
    causing activation to fail.

    Use the Activation Troubleshooter for Office 365 and Office 2016

    It's best to ask MS Office questions at a forum dedicated solely to MS Office.

    Use this link to Microsoft Community forum, Office 2016, Install, Upgrade , and Activate.
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/o...ce_2016?auth=1

    When you get there, under Office Topic heading on the left, click the pointer and select Install, Upgrade and Activation.
