    I have a .reg file for Office 2007 Enterprise which when entered into the registry makes Office 2007 Enterprise fully activated and genuine no matter how many times it is installed and also seen as genuine when validated on the MS site.

    Do the "senior MDL members" think this simple method will ever happen for Office 2010?

    It can't be possible.......

    Let me explain you the process of activation of Office products. Office version prior to 2010 as 2000, 2003, 2007 licensed according to Windows NT 5.x licensing, which means u have to activate if buy a retail license. But u dont need any activation if u choose the volume versions. Office Enterprise 2007 is a volume licensed only product. The reg file u mentioned just import a valid vlk key and corresponding product id in the registry and thus ur office makes genuine forever. [thats why we use pirated Win XP with vlk keys]

    But Office 2010 is licensed according to Windows NT 6.x licensing, which requires the end user [in case of vl version] re activate his/her product after every 180 days from the first activation. Even for MAK keys, they are bounded to activate their product once by telephone or internet and then use forever. In case of office 2010 retail, u still need a genuine MSDN/retail serial to install.

    So, it is clearly proved that there is no and will be no one click reg activation for Office 2010.......

    Hope this will satisfy ur thinking.....

    But isn't that only if you allow the installation of the OGA security update?

    What about Office 2010 Starter, which activation method does it use? Universal retail key? OEM activation like Windows?

    But the starter edition is supposed to be preinstalled, ie. it will be part of the PC manufacture image and always the same, therefore the activation has to be different there.

    The activation does not have to be different people because Office has a OEM product key built into the SKUID master list which happens to be this:
    OEM_ByPass

    As well as a few others here and there bottom line is that office will be pre-installed on the systems exactly the same way Operating systems such as Windows 7 is....
    Its a bit confusing but each edition has a separate product key for its own edition my best guess is that there are 4 types of main keys:
    OEM - HP, Dell, Sony , etc
    Retail - normal consumer
    Personal - used by MS employees (prob)
    Volume - used by companies

    Also there are quite a lot of editions to support this so here goes:
    Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
    Microsoft Office Standard 2010
    Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010
    Microsoft Office Professional 2010
    Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010
    Microsoft Office Personal 2010
    Microsoft Office Starter 2010
    Microsoft Office Small Business Basics 2010
    Microsoft Office Mondo Full 2010

    The OEM SLP my bad lol could also be used for the pro version of office 2010 which could be preinstalled on a laptop by one of the major manufacturers...
    And as for the Mondo full edition I really don't know what that is its prob a developer edition as they go from one version to the next...
