    Since the method in the thread [ 35862-Microsoft-Office-2013-Preview ] (which uses MultiKMS and a retail MAK) worked well for me (eventhough it uses online activation after all), I was wondering on how to backup the activation tokens and license.

    The [Microsoft Toolkit 2.3.2] tool tells me there are license issues / that they are broken - eventhough I have 2010 (32bit) and 2013 (32bit) activated and working well on the same Windows 7 x64 machine.
    I always get "Cannot use Backup because your licensing details are corrupt." :-(

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Do not use MTK on Office 2013, especially on Windows 8. It is not supported and assumptions for Office 2010 that have broken will screw up your copy of Office 2013.

    I will support 2013 in Version 2.4, but right now you are using BETA 2013 and I'll only be supporting RTM 2013, though BETA may work if no changes to RTM occur.

    Thank you for your reply, CODYQX4!

    Since my question is answered and there will be no other answer until the RTM and/or release of MTK 2.4,
    I'd kindly ask any admit to lock/close this thread. Thanks.
