Office 2010 Activation issues

If you are trying to activate Microsoft Office 2010 and it hangs at activation and then fails out. Try the following steps:

From an elevated cmd window, set default folder to Program Files\MicrosoftOffice\Office14 and ran cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus

-notice that the last 6 characters of the activation key don’t match the activation key

-type cscript ospp.vbs to get a list of commands to use

-ran cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:<last 6 characters of the incorrect activation key>

       (uninstalls incorrect key)

-ran cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:<full correct activation key>

       (installs correct key)

-ran script ospp.vbs /act

       (activates the key)
