Office 2010 KMS activation on XP client

Hello,

I am trying activate Office 2010 that is installed on an XP machine with a DNS suffix different than the KMS HOST suffix. With windows 7 I would just use slmgr to specify the KMS HOST manually, and that works fine. SLMGR is not on XP, so what can I do in this case?

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with everything mentioned above, but I'd try logging into the Pc and the local administrator using dymanic TCP & DNS and register Office. If that works, logout and log in using your domain account and it should work fine.

Then call the Microsoft license hotline that is mentioned on the screen where it says the license cannot be activated. If you have a valid product key, they provide a replacement that should allow it to get registered. We have used it multiple times and it always resolved our problem.
