    I installed Office 2013 Pro Plus using the following ISO: OfficeProfessionalPlus_x64_en-us.IMG
    File: OfficeProfessionalPlus_x64_en-us.img

    SHA-1: 377f1f97dbe99104cf053df3632377f07c9310c7


    This is the output from Office Toolkit 2.4.3
    Code:
    ----------------------------------------
    Installing Any Matching Volume Keys.

    Attempting To Activate Microsoft Office

    Why is it not activating? I never had a problem with Offfice 2010 and the EZ-Activator

    You need to convert to VL version first.

    How do I do that? I don't see that option in the Office Toolkit.

    Thanks.
    What is the difference between EZ-Activating and re-arming and which is the preferred method?

    Rearming only restores the Grace Period back to 30 days, and the restores are limitted.

    'EZ-Activator' is activation and can be renewed infinatily :D.

    What if Win 8 pro Retail legitimate is Installed and has been activated online , and then one installs office pro plus 2013 volume and try to activate office by kms ?

    Wouldn't Retail OS and Volume office , channel licences raise Issues when visiting MS site ?

    Thank you

    I specifically mean the IORRT from Duality420. Shouldn't it be preferred over EZ-Activator as its undetectable?

    You are not actually activating anything with Duality420. You are just rearming in order to keep Windows/Office in a permanent trial status.

    FIRST: As there is no Validation for Office, so thereĀ“s nothing to detect here :D.

    The Activation route has the advantage that you only have to care all 180 days, in opposite to 30 with the rearms.

    AutoKMS uses a KMS Emulator (as console app) to reactivate via Task with 3 triggers. Same can also be done by installing a KMS Server as Service and creating tasks to reactivate with help of a small BAT/CMD script.
