    Office 2010 Toolkit and EZ-Activator, can activate Office 2007?

    Sorry, 2007 (what an awful version!)

    VL key is the best activation, as it is permanent (just make sure you use not blacklisted key)

    Of course you could use cracked dll, not same elegant, but also works

    Of course this question had been answered ALREADY

    VL is the best. IMHO cracked DLL is the worst because MSO.dll is a core file to office, in order to stay cracked after an update you have to replace the core library with an ancient, bug filled version. If there was a patcher that patched the newer DLL fine, but there isn't.

    This isn't too bad of a method, works on all SKUs:
    Code:
    Navigate to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en"
    open Proof.XML in notepad
    scroll down to the the bottom.
    
    You should see lines like this...
    </Feature>
    <Feature Id="SetupXmlFiles" Cost="1248">
    <OptionRef Id="AlwaysInstalled"/>
    </Feature> 
    
    Just change the line AlwaysInstalled with neverInstalled retaining the quotes...
    Save the file and u are ready to go...
    
    As it is Microsoft's stopping OGA, and as it is OGA only impacts downloading templates.

    1. So if I did this on a 2010 Office Pro + (VL switched), the suite will still update?
    2. Any further tips or warnings of any other disadvantages?

    I think that method only works on Office 2007 hence why it's in this 2007 thread, for Office 2010 just use IORRT by timesurfer ;)
