    I was using Office 2007 Enterprise just fine. But now I'm going to reinstall Windows and I want to use Office 2010 Professional Plus instead.

    First I downloaded Office 2010 SP1 x86+x64 DVD from MSDN. It installed fine but I was unable to change product key to MAK and it refused to activate using ZWT KMS emulator. So even if I was able to activate it over phone using valid MSDN key I will need to call to activate every 180 days, no permanent activation.

    Then I downloaded Microsoft.Office.2010.ProfessionalPlus.with.SP1.VL.Edition-ZWTiSO installed it and activated fine.

    1. Is the ZWTiSO version safe and backdoor free? I mean both the Office installation ISO and Keygen. The .rar files containing iso and keygen files have valid Team ZWT digital signatures and the keygen sha-1 matched the values posted on MDL. But the msp files in Update folder does not contain digital signatures from microsoft. And after install it did not offered me to choose between using OfficeXML and OpenXML format. MSDN version offered this to me.

    2. Can I run ZWT Keygen on another computer and activate office via LAN? (probably yes)

    I have researched answers to my questions myself.

    The ZWT have the same files in main folder that MSDN ISO have. The Updates folder have the same files with same checksums. All files that are different have valid Microsoft digital signature made around the same time. Additional Admin folder that are exclusive to Volume version have appropriate digital signatures for the files. No changes are made to installation scripts and configs.

    So the ZWT version is 100% legit. Are I allowed to post the checksums of the ISO file?

    OK there are the SHA-1 checksums for ISO file
    zo14rps1.ISO bc8354a2d8534c64fbcd1f1925f822c5ae7b6df5
    And there are the SHA-1 checksums for original packed release. The seperate archive containing Keygen is contained inside the RAR files and as long as the checksums match the keygen is not tampered with.

    Contrary what is written in instructions to use the keygen, the Keygen.exe are not needed to be run as administrator to function properly! Only the Command prompt need to be run as administrator to activate Office. When Keygen.exe is first launched a Windows firewall will pop up asking to access network. You can safely click Cancel to deny network access if you don't need to activate other installations over network. The Windows firewall does not prevent communications between software running on localhost. In this manner it is the safest approach - no 3rd-party code is run with administrative privileges and the code is denied to talk to external network.
