Serial Key Validation & Change Office Serial Keys RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a little big problem. I'm new in our company and responsible for the serial keys and validation.

    The problem is that we own computers with more than just one key for a product, eg there are up to 4 Keys for Office installation (Microsoft Office Single Image 2010) or Project on a single machine (according to the "ProduKey" tool). I think some of these keys came from the preinstalled Office Suite. It is easy to recognise preinstalled Windows Keys because of the XXXXX-OEM-XXXXXXX-XXXXX in Prodict ID, but there's nothing like that for office.

    Is there a tool which can remove the "unused"/trial/expired keys?

  • There is no tool I know of that can do what you're talking about.

    All I can suggest is that you inventories everything, and then consider your options - possibly something as drastic as re-imaging using Volume media.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
