I am running into a problem with running the following command in cmd to retrieve the last 5 digits of my Office key.

The command prompt is as follows:

cscript “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS” /dstatus

Opening CMD, I changed the directory to the root of C:\ and ran the command, but I get the following error:

"Input Error: There is no file extension in "C:\"C:\program"."

I verified the file is there in the program files x86 folder, so I am not sure where I am going wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Open cmd as administrator

type cd C:\Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office16

hit enter

then you want to type ospp.vbs /dstatus
