    I am sitting here with a friend and I have just installed Office 2013 and we cant get it activated. Is that because of the Windows 8 vs Office 2013 issue that hasnt been fixed yet?. Or is there there actually a way know for it to actually work that is pretty simple to go through and/or deal with.

    We are trying to run KMSNano and running check activation just says it cant find the key etc and lists Office 2013 as being under the 179 day grace.

    KMS will activate Office for 180 days, then you have to activate again for another 180 days and so on.

    I needed a danish install of Office so I just grabbed one that was available. I wasnt aware that you actually had to get a Volume License version in order to get it activated etc.

    EDIT:
    If someone can provide a link it will be much appreciated :)

    The language specific isos are retail. Download english volume install it, activate it and the find danish language pack. You can find easily all of those in other threads.

    or

    Convert your install to vl and activate.

    I activated a retail version using phone activation and a key that I found on a forum. It is permanent activation, but maybe it will not be activated anymore if/when MS blacklists the key, not sure. I don't know if that works anymore.

    You can always convert to VL.

    Not for Retail versions. You´ll have to convert before.
