    Within the Office 2010 RTM ospp.htm file, several new commands and switch options have been added to the distribution not seen in previous releases.

    Can someone explain their use?

    Specifically the following:

    Code:
    /Token only
    
    cscript ospp.vbs /rtokil:4476b20e 'Uninstall an issuance license with license ID.
    
    cscript ospp.vbs /tokact:96DE6755ABE0BC7D398E96C3AA3C7BFE8B565248 'Token activate with thumbprint.
    
    cscript ospp.vbs /tokact:56AE6755AAB0BC7D398E96C3AA3C7BFE8B565256:54344 'Token activate with thumbprint & PIN.
    I am assuming this is the "token" method. Could this be a *fourth* activation option in addition to: KMS, MAK and OEM?

    A response would be appreciated.

    Someone here (can't remember who) said that token based activation was simular to oem slp, it works without slic but it's also fully offline and no need to reactivate every 180 days like with kms.
    It has something to do with a cert and 1 or 2 other files or a special key. When you need vl and can not go online for kms (i.e. for computers of the fbi for whitch it's to risky to connect to the internet) you can request a licensing app from M$ that makes those files/certs/keys, or maybe M$ makes it for you and sends you the files. When all the file/certs/keys are succesfully applied to the installed office and they match then office is activated.

    It comes down to the point that if we are able to make a kind of keygen that generates sets of files/certs/keys that match then we can use that to activate office, but I think it's verry hard to do that and to try it we need at least a copy of the program that makes the certs. And if we have that then I think we also need some examples of valid sets to compare etc.

    btw: I'm not shure if my explanation is right anyway

    If your Office 2010 user name or computer mainboard is different, it never works...

    This hs nothing to do with user names of mainboards. I read a little more and it seems you have to contact M$, they will give you a cert. Another program uses that cert to generate one or 2 other certs. Now you can use the file(s) from the program, the original MS cert and a vlk key to activate office.
