    Which version of Office has OEM/SLP/SLIC way of activating and updating?

    ie: From office 2000 and up.

    (Just like how Windows 7, you can use OEM key to activate then update fine)

    thanks

    It seems that for all Microsoft Office, there is only loaders (or softmods../patches)

    i dont think any version of office does

    why would it? all that is needed is a good key and why would microsoft complicate things by including an oem slic

    espically very rarely a full version of office is installed by an OEM

    and if it were an OEM cant say that they only preinstall a full office on a certain computer model and since they wouldnt do that that would mean an oem would need to modd the bios which basically makes all of this just insane

    im excluding the Office operating systems like exchange

    and there not "softloaders" or anything like that it either patches an activation dll or it generates a key using the same algorithm that microsft uses

    there are OEM copies of Office they are pretty rare though, and I don't know how they work as far as activation maybe they do use SLP 1.0, I don't know.

    I know Office 2k10 will use SLP 2.1 and require activation on all copies.

    i noticed in the office 2010 beta 2 extracted source files that there is a SLIC 2.1 file and a CERT

    will there be any bins for this? so we can patch our bios?

    that would be amazing

    I've been using a Microsoft office 2007 forever that I activated with a key, but I make sure I block the application from connecting to the net. I've had some microsoft updates for a while now for it though and I'm wondering if there's a way I can download those updates for it without it getting zapped or something.

    Just note Office 2000 had no activation, nor automatic update selection. Start with Office 2003 for sure, I don't know about Office XP.

    Hi guys,
    I'm like you in that I wish there was a "foolproof" (at least close) way of activating Office 2007. I'm just not going to worry everyday that my MS Office is going to wig out on me. There should be a way to make this happen. I'm not software saavy enough to figure it out. I do have a activated copy of Office 2003 Professional, but I'm not sure it is an OEM or "Corporate" type version. I know it has a custom install due to the way our company use to setup menus. Anyone that could login to the server had access to it and it loads perfectly fine on a standalone machine. During and after install there no indication or request for activation.

    I wonder if there is information that I can extract from it that might help with activation of Office 2007?

    Pretty much the problem is that Office 2010 has a different activation way than say office 2007 and even 2003....
    Office 2010 Activation Scheme is pretty damn Secure only way I know of activating it is via KMS server....
    The old ways such as modding the registry and Proof.en are gone cause of a custom block build in to detect such mods....
    Going on Office 2010 = Windows 7 activation essentially
    Office 2007 = Used the Registry info to activate and not get spoofed (very easy to get around) as well as OGA
    Office 2003 = Uses OGA to verify genuine copy
    Office 2000 = Did no use Activation
    As you can see they use different activation methods hence its pretty much impossible to convert 2000 to 2010 as well as 2003 to 2010....
    Only possibility is Office 2007 to 2010 because the activation method was similar before they updated it....

    On Office 2007 where you recommend registry. Are you talking about the "office.reg" file that is floating around or is there a specific thread that you are reffering to. I'm right in the middle of trying to get this Office 2007 thing sorted out. As far as stability of activation and/or authentification is 2007 Enterprise or Ultimate any different? It seems that Enterprise has more information available. Thanks

    That is exactly actually what I was referring to lol. The authentication for Enterprise is KMS as well as there being a special key that only the corporate sector can use. The Ultimate version is consumer related so that should pretty easy to do. On a whole however both versions can use KMS they are just kinda not meant to be cause if you use a server its much easier to use KMS cause it would take forever to activate say 100 copies on each computer. Thats why office 2010 was hacked cause the people realized wait if I used the KMS server and emulated it I could make it genuine. Now whats the difference between office 2007 Enterprise and Office Ultimate? Well some of the features which the normal consumer doesn't need have been taken out so its only in Enterprise. The software taken out is Groove and one note and thats it...

    Now to answer your question if you were to run the KMS emulator aka keygen.exe and try to activate at the same time you should have no problem with it.

    I hope this helps...
