Microsoft Office 2013 requires you to provide a product key to activate it. The product key is alphanumeric in nature and contains five letters and five sets that will license you to install or even reinstall the product. With the product key, you are declared as the valid owner of Microsoft office 2013. If in case you do not have the product key, you will invariably not be able to activate or reinstall the product. So, if you have lost the product key or misplaced it then your first course of action would be to contact Microsoft office assistance to provide you with one. Or else, given below are a series of steps that you can follow to retrieve the product key and install your product.
If you have purchased your Microsoft Office package in a shop, the CD provided along with the package will contain all the required details for the installation of the product. It will also contain the product key or serial number that enables the functioning of the product. It is usually available inside the disc box in the form of a sticker affixed to the CD case itself.
Microsoft Office Assistance usually sends an email when you download the product from the website. This will also contain the product serial key to activate it. At another time, you can also find it in the message ‘lost Office 2013 product key’ in the email sent by Microsoft.
You can also retrieve your product key from the Registry. Here are a few steps to let you know how to accomplish it:
The product serial key is encrypted into the registry.
To retrieve it:
- Click on ‘Start’ and then on ‘Run’
- In the open dialog box type ‘Regedit’
- Open the ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE’ to expand it
- Look for ‘Software’ and then choose ‘Microsoft’
- Click on ‘Office’ and open it to ’12.0’ and then ‘Registration’
- Under ‘Registration’ you will find the product key listed on the right window pane
Once you have installed the product, you just have to run it to get it activated. For any difficulties that you may face with the activation or installation reach out to Microsoft Office Assistance at microsoft-help-desk.com or call us at 1-855-559-2230.
