    Thank you for everything you do to help those of us who are technologically challenged and/or financially challenged. That said, I could use some advice/assistance.
    I recently wiped my laptop and reinstalled Windows 8 and then got all of the updates etc. Then I upgraded it to Windows 8.1. I had to do this because I was getting a message saying my Windows 8, which came installed on my HP 2000 Notebook PC, was expiring. Also, I downloaded MS Office 2013 from your uploaded files and now I am wondering if it is compatible with Windows 8.1 and if there is anything special I need to do to install it properly and avoid any future issues with my OS system.

    Could you please advise? I'd truly appreciate your help.

    Regards, Angel
    :rolleyes:

    In order to activate Office by KMS (Microsoft Toolkit or KMSpico from my signature) you'll need to install a Volume License (VL) version of Office.

    Was 'VL' mentioned it the thread you downloaded it from?

    Hey S1ave77,

    Is it possible for a VL MS Office download and install to affect and change the version of Windows to a VL? I'm asking because I had had my laptop for almost a year when my Windows suddenly decided to try to expire and Microsoft informed that my Windows had a volume license...wrong version for a home laptop purchased at Walmart. That's why I had to completely redo everything from CD/DVD. So just wondering if doing this install will cause that issue with Windows...I know it sounds stupid but my laptop came with Windows 8 installed and I didn't think I had used a VL install of 8.1...This time I got 8.1 from the Windows store...

    To have full control i'd recommend to use Microsoft Toolkit, start it and open the Office Toolkit via the little Office-button. On 'Activation' tab press 'EZ-Activator'. As long as there is no VL key installed for Windows, MTK won't touch it :cool2:.

    Behavior of your Windows is kind of suspicious. Please provide output for (in admin command prompt):
    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv

    You'll need to open command prompt as admin ... press Win-Key+X and then 'a' :cool2:.

    Right-click into CMD window and choose 'Mark' or 'Mark All' and hit <ENTER> to copy to clipboard. Paste here inside [code=rich][/code] tags.
