    A modified script to activate Office 2010 retail version by using MAK

    Actually this modified script is based on the one that letsgoawayhell has released in the thread "How to convert Office 2010 Retail Installation to Office 2010 VL ??" @ #279. This script does not replace the tokens.dat instead it is installing the certs that are required for MAK activation and validation. And this is better for you since you do not need to edit / replace the existing files, instead you just need to install required stuffs for activation.

    Since I have seen a lot of people confusing to use the certificate that provided by him, I decided to make the process more simple by creating a script that installed a leaked MAK, the certificates provided by him (currently the MAK key is still working but it should be used for testing only).

    Since I don't have much time to test it .... the script could still be a little bit buggy atm (but @ least it works for me for @ least 3 times) .... if you have successfully installed the key, you should remember to activate the key only by phone since the MAK has already exceeded the activation limit for online activation.

    All the credit goes to letsgoawayhell as he has nearly created the whole thing up. I am just the one who wrap all those things together.

    Have fun with this MAK key permanent activation (although the key may not be last for long)

    P.S. You still have to install the retail setup with a retail key first, after that you can remove it by calling
    Code:
    cscript "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /unpkey:<Last five digits of the CD Key that you want to remove>
    in command console.
    And you can have list of installed CD Key of office 2010 (as showing out the last five digits) by calling
    Code:
    cscript "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /dstatus
    in the command console.
    Currently this script doesn't work on WoW64 as I don't have time to collect the registry file to do so. I will write a small program for it once I have got enough time to do so.

    Nice, but just so you know using Office 2010 License Add does this. It however enables use of KMS and/or MAK. I however use the KMS as it won't get blocked.

    I got all that reg info in the toolkit so its a more complete solution. That is a reason I made that. It turns out all that reg info follows a special pattern so you can make it yourself.

    Actually I think it is harder to ban a MAK (especially those unpopular ones) since it doesn't require to perform any activation / contact with the Microsoft KMS (every 6 months) ............... but by using a emulated KMS (miniKMS) on local computer, I guess it is actually easier to be detected as Microsoft can check whether the KMS activation is based on the local computer or not.

    btw do you know what this edition is used for? I found it on my computer after installing the cert
    SKU ID: c1ceda8b-c578-4d5d-a4aa-23626be4e234
    LICENSE NAME: Office 14, OfficeOEM-ByPass edition

    It is like a joke that comes from MS which provided OEM bypass method (actually is this the KMS activation bypass cert / license?)

    It is Microsoft Office 2010, it is different from Professional Plus, Standard, Home and Student, Home and Business and Professional suites. It has only one license type and maybe it comes with its own installer.

    *cough* does anyone really care if microsoft puts mak key on blocklist?
    i mean, if you backup your activation files, you can always reinstall and reactivate.
    it's not like you re-format your computer every 2 months.

    But once it on the MS blacklist you will not be able to successfully validate (OGA)

    There's no OGA for Office 2010 yet. Even if there will be OGA, I'm sure the hackers will have their ways.

    Sure, although that eliminates the preferred use of a MAK key opposed to a VLK key, don't it?

    Uh how did you activate the product? You cannot activate it by connecting the official MS KMS ...... you can only activate via phone activation (offline activation) ...... if you have used the official MS KMS for activation ......... you will get the following message in the event log :

    MESSAGE: License acquisition failure details. hr=0xC004C020
    ERROR DESCRIPTION: The activation server reported that the Multiple Activation Key has exceeded its limit.

    You can check this by using
    Code:
    cscript "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /dhistoryacterr
    btw I am pretty sure there are more leaked MAK available on the Internet atm ..... I will give you one by pm once I have found a new MAK :)

    btw I am investigating a new method to activate the product by using Office 2007 product key ..... I will start a new thread and give out a new tool for that purpose .....

    I used VAMT 2.0 to check the key, and the remaing activation count was 0. But the key was posted on several Chinese forums, so then it's not so strange that it is used up fast.

    Which is why the OP says you have to "Telephone activate" which I think it's strange that they'd continue to phone activate it.

    It's the same with normal MSDN/Technet licenses. You have 10 online activations, and at least 15-25 phone activation per license. On a MAK key with 500 activations - it can be all from 10-1500 phone activation. Nobody has posted that info directly from MS, but I have heard about 1.500 activation (online and phone) on a 500 act MAK key from MSDN/Technet.

    Can you post a screenshot. I believe that this allows a OEM key(but we do not have one). This OEM_Bypass is bundled in ALL Retail versions.

    When you install office it installs several certs (these allow you to use key). If you use this on retail you can use MAK but not KMS (You'd have to install KMS certs and reg info to do so). When you use retail there are MSDN, Regular retail, trial, subscription, and this OEM Bypass thing. All licenses certs for OEM Bypass are the same.

    In theory if I am right if we had a OEM Bypass key (which there probably won't be one since OEMs load trials, starter, or simply provide a key, no OEM does Office like OEM Windows so we'll probably never have this key) it will activate any and all retail office suites/apps without any activation method (Just install key and good to go).

    My reasoning is Starter uses Starter Bypass and Sharepoint Designer uses SPD Bypass. These keys activate the product immediately without need for KMS/Phone/Online.

    The OEM cert for OEM Bypass indicates it covers all office 2010 retail versions. If someone could somehow create/keygen this key we have all retail activated (and VL users can convert to Retail and use the key allowing a perfect activation solution minus OGA validation).

    Uh actually my Windows is installed with a OEM SLP key and have modified my BIOS file such that it has included OEM cert inside ....... I provide you a full list of available license on my OS then ......

    This list of available license can be obtained through

    btw currently I am investigating a new method to activate office ..... but it seems like doesn't work in the way as it has been claimed ...... but well there is a funny thing occurred when you use such a method ........ when you use such a method you do not need to enter any key in the office 2010 installation process and any office 2010 application can be started with full feature even the key has not been entered ............. but the weird thing is that when I start VAMT 2.0 and using the ospp.vbs script to check the license status ...... the only installed license is the embedded KMS client license and the product is in a out-of-box (OOB) grace period which has 30 days to activate it ........ btw I am working in a new way to activate office 2010 other then this too .... will post more info after I have found it out ........

    btw I will code a wmi database query engine too once I have finished the second method coz it seems like the most legit and direct way to obtain license info ......

    Funny thing...the MAK key used in this script got at least 3000 activation today (night time here in Norway). Now, after only 14-15 hours, it's down to 1000 activations left, and going down fast. Feeling sorry for the company that has that key...they have i big problem when their 3000+ MAK key is used up in one day.
    Discovered another key that was used up, and now it's has 28.000 activations, so somebody has called MS and got a refill. Glad that I keep old keys in VAMT, because suddenly the MAK keys is filled up again. When the key is marked "blocked" I deleted it from VAMT.

    lol wtf actually I created this script just for showing how to use MAK key in retail version of office 2010 ...... I didn't expect a lot of user can use it since it has been leaked for @ least 3 ~ 2 months already ........ anyway when I check about the remaining activation time last time ...... it was 0 and now it has suddenly changed to 813 ......

    As of 2/9/2010 05:05 GMT the remaining activation finally reached 0

    I assume you ran ospp.vbs /dstatusall. It shows ALL possible Office license types you can use. If you had the OEM Bypass key you could install it right now. Product key unavailable means not installed.

    /dstatus shows only whats installed.

    PS: About WMI I use it alot now in my toolkit (also helps me find if its KMS , activated, notifications, etc) What I like about it is the command is the same always and you do not need different path. I am using it more and more as it limits issues finding ospp.vbs. It also contains a way to uninstall a product key by SKU instead of last 5 digits allowing me to uninstall all unactivated keys without knowing what they are.
