Microsoft office Digital Delivery without product key - MSA

Issue: Unable to Activate Microsoft Office Subscription on Out of Box OEM Machine.

Description:
Microsoft Has introduced a new method of digital delivery of their office Applications.
Now, if you are buying any computer from the market and if you are getting MS office bundled, then you are the one who needs to use Microsoft Account activation alias MSA. That means Microsoft stopped to send the product key on a piece of paper(Going Paperless). If you are buying Office bundled with the computer form Microsoft Partnered OEM manufacturer along with Windows 10 Machine (Windows 7 users will still get a Product key label), they will sync your PC with their database. Hence, whichever email address you use with Microsoft account and then use it for the first time on the computer, that email address will acquire the Subscription of the MS office package. Later on, you just need to click on activate, there you will have options to activate using acquired Subscription using MSA sign in.
For example, your email address is with yahoo then also you can get this email registered with Microsoft by going to their website live.com. Now you can use this email for Windows logon.
Just enable Windows sign with MSA means Microsoft account and system bundled with MS office will get assigned to your registered live account.

Fix:
Steps to get the Subscription Activated:-

Scenario 1: There are no pre-installed Microsoft office applications, then to acquire your office subscription follow the below steps.

1) System out of box setup; if you already have Microsoft Live account then, select the default option that uses Microsoft Live account. Or you can use a local account too, but to get your Microsoft office subscription later again, you have to go to Windows settings> Accounts > Sign in options> Use Microsoft Account. If you still find it difficult, then go to http://tinyurl.com/hv4dbdu and download the official app from there.

2) Log in now using Microsoft Account. Now, as you have started logging in using Microsoft Account, that means you are good to redeem/Activate your Subscription.

3) Wait for 10 Minutes, let Microsoft update their database.

4) Now go to www.office.com/myaccount and check for your subscribed Microsoft office applications and download it from there.

5) Now open any of the installed office applications, for example, Word. Go to the Account option. Here click on Activate it, these will give you options to enter the product key or using a sign in options, use the sign-in options, and log in.

6) Close Word and reopen it, it will give you pop up to Redeem your Microsoft subscription.
You just have to click on Redeem.

Scenario 2: You have the pre-installed same version of Microsoft office applications, and you just want to activate the Subscription.

1) Follow Step 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the first scenario.

Scenario 3: You have pre-installed office applications, but their versions are different such as Microsoft 365 installed, and you purchased Microsoft office 2016, then:

1) Follow Step 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the first scenario.

2) Now when again repeat step 5 of the first scenario, Activate using the sign-in options.

3) Now you will see the option there to update click on it, and it will download and install the correct version.

Another way around in this situation is that you can simply uninstall the unwanted version of Microsoft office and make your installation entirely like the first scenario and follow all steps.

Some FAQs:

Q: Why is Microsoft changing its traditional approach of sending product key?
There multiple reasons behind it:
1) Reducing the cost of paper, material, printing, and delivery.
2) Increasing the database of a real & genuine subscriber.
3) Encouraging Microsoft to sign in to Windows so that they will get more business or of their future cloud marketing plans. (Just like how Google made it mandatory on Android device.)
4) Stopping piracy and theft of there expensive subscription.
5) Avoiding unnecessary trouble of losing product key.

So overall, Microsoft has initiated this new approach, which creates a win-win situation for both the customer and the company.

Q: Any limitations to this approach?
The only limitation is that it requires Microsoft to login to the system to acquire system info and assigning subscriptions to the system. Which means it works on Microsoft Windows 8 and later.

Q: Is it only available on factory bundled systems, or new buyers will follow the same procedure?
The answer is within the question, bundled systems you are aware of now, for the newer Subscription, it is a question how the buyer wants to buy it if he wants to get it online this process is already there for more than a decade now. And if you're going to buy the hard copy of Microsoft Office from a retailer, then you will still get the traditional paper product key.

  1. This may help if what you try did not work:

    Open regedit:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common

    Right-click Common > New > Key.

    Rename this new key OEM.

    Right-click the key you just created (OEM), and select New > String Value.

    Rename this new String Value to OOBEMode.

    Double-click this new String Value and select Modify....

    In the box labeled Value data:, replace the value with OEMTA. Then select OK to finish the setting.

    Right-click the key you created earlier (OEM), and then select Permissions....

    For every Group or User listed in the Security tab, make sure the checkbox under Allow is checked for the Full Control level of permissions. This allows Office to read the registry setting and update it once you've successfully activated your software. Select OK when you've finished checking these boxes

    Repeat these steps for the other location listed in step 4. If it's not there, move on to step 7.

    Make sure that you activated Windows and you have Internet access. Open any Office application to start the Office setup wizard. When you see a dialog box called Let's get started, follow the prompts to Activate Office.

  4. Use cscript to activate Office 2010, 2013 & 2016
    Software: Office 2010, 2013 & 2016 |

    When you're unable to activate Office through additional means, you can use the cscript commands to activate Office with the help of the Command Prompt.

    [Solution 1] Activate Office with cscript

    Open the Command Prompt (Admin) or PowerShell (Admin).
    Execute the command that belongs to your version:

    Office 2010: cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14
    Office 2013: cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15
    Office 2016: cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16

    To view the installed product key, execute cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus
    To uninstall an installed product key, execute cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:XXXXX
    Replace the XXXXX with the last five character of the currently installed product key (found in step 3).
    To install a new product key, execute cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
    Replace the XXXX with your full product key of Office.
    To activate Office with the new product key, execute cscript ospp.vbs /act
    Restart the Office application and Office will be activated.

    You will have to obtain the product key from within your Microsoft Account if you're using a retail version of Office 2013 or 2016.

    Go to http://www.office.com/myaccount.
    Sign in with your Microsoft Account and select Install from a disc.
    Open I want to burn a disc and select View your product key.
    Use this product key for the steps above
