    Hello Guys!

    Call me dumb or silly if you want but I am about to give up :(

    I am trying to find a way to permanently or temporally activate Office 2010 SP2 VL under Windows XP SP3 Pro.

    I tried the " Microsoft Toolkit 2.4.7" but I guess it only works with Windows 7.

    I also tried "Duality 4.20" but I guess it only works with Office 2013.

    Lastly I also tried Triology 4.2 and it keeps saying that Office cannot be detected.

    Finally I tried the "mini-KMS 1.13" activation but every time I run the software it keeps opening some survey pages...

    So the question is... is there a way to activate Office 2010 SP2 under Windows XP SP3?
    (Without actually buying the software? :)

    Sure there is :)
    Be sure first that you are using a VL version in order to use MTK with it. If you are using a retail version, you can convert the installer and it will be activated.

    If MTK 2.4.7 didn't work, you can use an older version, say 2.3.2, AFIK it needs .Net Framework 3.5 not 4. Make sure that you disable your AV as some AV like Avira detects AUTO KMS as a virus.

    If you can't get MTK to work in your system, that's another thing, try to get it to work first and just use what is mentioned above.

    Or try the manual way via admin CMD:

    Code:
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /sethst:58.173.212.51
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /setprt:1688
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act
    
    This assumes Office 14 installed in default location.
