    different kernel, different os, different everything. Better give up. Besides, why would you want office on a pre=beta build of an os full of bugs and uncompatibility?

    1. Turn windows defender off.
    2. Go to control panel > programs and features > turn windows features on or off > turn on .net framework 3.5.1
    3. Run: services.msc stop office software protection, stop software protection
    4. Run: office 2010 toolkit

    I can confirm these steps, they work. I installed Office the same day 7955 got leaked and had the same issue. Activated .NET 3.5.1 Toolkit worked fine :D

    Did you use 2010 Toolkit 2.0.1? Under Main, click EZ-Activator?

    If you did the above and still not working, then you may want to uninstall it, delete all off 2010 entries(in program files, registry, users\your user name\AppData\local\m$\office...) then install again...

    WOAT 3.3 does not work on 7955 FYI

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/21262-WOAT-OEM-KMS-Activator

    Read release notes for 3.3

    how ever 3.2 worked for activating office (2010 pro plus) KMS_Client edititon
    woat 3.2 says 180days left of grace. (not that that matters much because i'm sure by that time i'll have installed beta 1 of windows 8)

    Well, the Toolkit requires .Net Framework 3.5 to run, so it should be enabled as ODY123 said. Until now that should be the only problem, which is not a Toolkit's problem, lol :D
