Changing key for Office 2010

I need to change the product key for Office 2010 for a group of pc's. I would like to do it with regedit and roll it out with a log on script.

We rolled out a large group of pc's using ghost. However, they didn't change the office product keys for the different counties. I'm trying to find the best way to do this and then activate them too. I was thinking I would simply do this by updating it in the registy and then rolling it out with a logon script.

Have any of you had to do this? Any advice or input?

Regards,

Hi,

Have you tried "Office Software Protection Platform script"

You should be able to place this as a start up script and apply it to the affected machines


cscript ospp.vbs  /inpkey:"YOURKEY"
cscript ospp.vbs  /act

+1 for the ospp script if you are using MAK

There is also a "front-end" option in Office Pro 2010
If you run Control Panel>Programs (Office Pro) > Change you'll see an option to enter a Product Key and this will overwrite the existing one.

Running the script with the MAK key is easily the better fix for the numbers you are hinting at though.

I got pulled off this for a little while. Therefore, I haven't had a change to test it out. I'm going to award the points and close this ticket, but I will update it once I have completed this project. Thanks for you input.
