    Hi all!

    I know the question of no rearms left have come up repeatedly in this forum but I hope you guys can help. I have searched through the forum and I can't find the solutions for my specific situation. I have used up all my rearms and I had no idea that I should've kept renewing my rearms.

    My situations:
    • I am currently using MS Office 2013 Pro Plus under Windows 8.1.
    • Rearm count is 0 in MKT
    • Red bar across the top of office with "Product Activation Failed"

    So my questions are:
    1. How do I get my rearms back up to 5 and activate my product again?
    2. I do not mind using earlier versions such as Office 2010 as long as I can use it without problem, so can I solve this problem by rolling back to earlier versions?
    3. If I do need to uninstall my office, what tools should I use for a clean uninstall? MKT or are there others?

    Thank you guys!!! any advice is welcomed and useful threads or links would be great too!:worthy::biggrin:

    Rearm count has nothing to do with activation.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
