    Hello,

    I've downloaded several Office 2013 packages from various sources and been able to install them but I'm at a stand still with being able to activate it. The option for activating by phone is grayed out and I have tried various keys by the internet access method while on my anonymizing VPN connection but the keys keep coming up used. Does anyone have any solutions? I have also tried using the only Keygen activator I've been able to find and when I even try to use the "rearm" option on the keygen it comes up with an error indicating that there's a problem with the path to an .exe file not being valid. FYI - I am a computer help desk tech by trade and pretty familiar with using RegEdit and I am on Windows 7 64 bit.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you,
    Wonder Woman

    Install the VL and activate it with this.

    Hello, Thank you for your reply - what is "VL"? Where can I get it? Why is the activate by phone option grayed out?

    I have multiple keys but every time I try to activate it the attempt fails. Where can I get more keys?

    Tito's advice is sound.
    VL stands for Volume License.
