My new laptop came with a trial version of Microsoft office Professional Plus, this trial lasts for 30 days. So I found a website that sells the key I need, here is the link to the website: http://www.just4keys.com/office-2013-pro-plus-key-download-p-33.html?zenid=69437ab569c823b7ac05e13ca0ee

My question is, how do I enter the product key for the full version before the end of the trial?

I have used the process described in this post

For 32 bit Windows: cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:yourkeygoeshere

For 64 bit Windows (assuming you are using 32 bit Office): cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:yourkeygoeshere

Obviously, you need to replace yourkeygoeshere with your product key.

  • Next time I here that Gnu/Linux users have to use the command line, I will not tell them that the command line is superior to graphical interface, or that Gnu/Linux has a superior graphical interface. Instead I will point them here to see that in Microsoft's system they need the command line to be allowed to use the graphical interface.

  • Thanks it worked. Why microsoft don't tell us what to do, I don't know. I would not recommend this product (Microsoft) to a friend. Commented Feb 24, 2017 at 18:34
