    I had Office 2010 Professional installed but could not get it to activate. I uninstalled it and installed what was suppose to be an Enterprise edition, but I think it is really a Professional version as the Enterprise version was not supposed to require activation.

    I have used the activation methods available and it won't activate. I get an KMS error Failed to set KMS Host
    Failed to set KMS Port or
    Could not activate because your licensing details are corrupt.
    ---------------------------------------- not found or
    Cannot use EZ-Activator because your licensing details are corrupt.

    Any suggestions appreciated. I have been reading and trying what I found to no avail.

    WEB :confused:

    Uninstall. Convert you setup files to VL. Reinstall. Reactivate
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    More than likely he needs to clean Office with the Office Cleaner by M$.... to remove all traces of the borked install...
    then he should REBOOT... then shutdown then reboot. then run the Office cleaner again...
    it might also help to "Make sure he know what edition he is installing... not a should be or I think it was....

    genuine Retail Office 2010 keys a dime a dozen... the need to activate with a converter or KMS Activator is no longer required...

    i have installed and activated office 2010 standard. in past, i successfully restore activation after re-installing windows. yesterday i notice, my office is no more activated?!, all i did is update windows. Maybe is that or the key is expired?
