    Hello

    I have the rest of Office 2013 activated but not Visio 2013. How do I activate Visio?

    But I ran this before to activate the rest of Office 2013.......and I already had Visio 2013 installed.

    This is on Windows 7 32 bits BTW.

    OK, tried again.

    Error message:

    Attempting to Activate OfficeVisioProR_Grace
    ERROR CODE: 0xC004F017
    ERROR TEXT: The Software Licensing Service reported that the license is not installed.
    <Product activation failed>

    By the looks of it, it looks Visio is retail. Can I convert it right now to VL? Or do I have to uninstall it? If I uninstall it, how do I convert it to VL (if thats possible) so I can reinstall it?

    Sorry guys.

    You need to uninstall it & convert the installer to VL first.

    Use this or MTK's built-in conversion function.
