Hi, have k2000 and trying to depoy windoes 7 image with Office 2013 embedded.  Both activated but Office fails to open due to an activation issue I think.  Any thoughts ?

  • How did you activate Office? In the image, or scripted after OS/Office install?
  • I entered our enterprise key in the standard way through Word. The key should work for any number of installs.

I'd suggest trying a post install task that activates Office: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624350.aspx

I acitvate both windows and office in my post scripts to the KMS and that solved the activation problems.

start /wait cscript %SystemRoot%\System32\slmgr.vbs -ATO

start /wait "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospprearm.exe"

start /wait cscript "c:\program files (x86)\microsoft office\office15\ospp.vbs" /act

for the laptops I switch to MAK in my post.

start /wait cscript %SystemRoot%\System32\slmgr.vbs -IPK xoxox-xoxox-xoxox-xoxox-12345
start /wait cscript %SystemRoot%\System32\slmgr.vbs -ATO

start /wait cscript "c:\program files (x86)\microsoft office\office15\ospp.vbs" /Inpkey:xoxox-xoxox-xoxox-xoxox-12345

start /wait cscript "c:\program files (x86)\microsoft office\office15\ospp.vbs" /act

I have mine as a Post Install Windows Bat. with this text:

cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /act

You'll have to change the Program Files to C:\Program Files (x86) on 64 bit images with 32 bit Office.

Same type thing with Windows activation:

cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ato

Use the Microsoft Office admin tool to customize your install of Office. This (for my company at least) should let it pick up the KMS automagically in addition to getting the install of office exactly the way you want it.

run the setup.exe in command prompt with setup.exe /admin
