MS Office "validation tools" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Instead of a product key, an ebay seller gave me this link to activate MS Office Pro Plus 2010 in a computer that I purchased from him:

    http://mirae.us/Microsoft.exe

    I have the uneasy feeling that this is some sort of validation workaround program and that running it would not be the best thing to do. Has anyone seen this this before?

  • Nevermind. When I last posted, I didn't know anything about activation by cracking or how common that it is. Now I know.

  • Nine times out of ten, eBay sellers offering only software product keys are selling counterfeit or pirated items. Hacks to circumvent product activation are fruitless.
