    Note that the LICENSED shows under for the next licensed thing, which says MSDN Retail (It is possible to have both these keys installed. I had to manually uninstall the grace period).

    Also, note the BETA_EXPIRATION part. Did you ever take a license backup with Office 2013 Beta installed? Install Office 2013 Beta on that OS install?

    I phone activated a MSDN key and uninstalled the grace key and it doesn't say BETA under it.

    Use this command [in Command Prompt with Admin Privileges] to Determine the last part of the GRACE PERIOD LICENSE KEY

    cscript "C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /dstatus [for x86 bit office on x64 bit Windows]

    OR

    cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /dstatus [for x64 bit office on x64 bit Windows or x86 on x86]


    for example in the image in first post it is 27GXM.

    Now execute this command to remove the key

    cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /unpkey:KEY-VALUE [Adjust Program Files or Program Files(x86) according to OS and Office version]

    Check with /dstatus command again to verify that the GRACE PERIOD key has been removed.

    Couldn't figure out what it could be. Maybe you'd installed a Consumer Preview version. And it could be because of that.

    In any case, if you want to remove it, then at the moment you will have to wipe out every trace of the current office installation and there's a separate guide for that. There could be another solution to it but I can't find any at the moment.

    What you should do is that continue using Office. If it doesn't get expired, you'll be saved from Uninstalling it.

    Same here I have this BETA EXPIRATION: 01/01/1601 and I only installed the RTM version on my PC. By the way, I checked the activation status using "Microsoft Toolkit 2.4 BETA 5" and there was no BETA EXPIRATION: 01/01/1601 shown. :confused:

    Okay, seems a lot of you have been irritated by the Beta Expiration. There isn't a definitive solution to this problem or I haven't found one yet :D. And I don't think it will lead to expiry.

    But if you can do a fresh install of Office 2013, be sure to wipe out every trace of Previous Office Installation before installing again.

    Here's the guide to do so.
