If you receive the message that you have reached the maximum number of activations and you cannot activate over the internet, Microsoft requires in some cases to activate your office by telephone. Please follow the instructions below to activate your office by telephone:
- When the message “maximum number of activations reached” pops up, please click on “back” and choose “telephone activation”” instead of activation over the internet.
- After you have chosen telephone activation you are asked to call the toll free Microsoft number and to complete 3 simple steps.
- After you called the toll free number and you provided the telephone robot with the correct installation ID, showing at your activation screen, you will receive in return a conformation id. Please enter the conformation id in your activation screen to activate your office.
