Office H & S 2007 won't use phone activation option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently had to replace the motherboard in my machine, and we all know what happens next. Normally it affects the OS installation but I rigged my XP so that can't happen. But my Office is a different story. Office says I must re-activate. It has passed OGA so that isn't it. Clicking on "activate over the internet" returns a message saying it's been activated too many times, which is just stupid unless 3 times is too many. So I tried the "activate by phone" option, but when I do the activation window closes and that's it. I can't use any of the applications as most of the features are disabled. How can I force the phone activation option?
