Have A Client where we installed Office 365 on his laptop

Every time he attempts to use his Office it wants to be activated.

When he does not have internet Connectivity he cannot activate it AGAIN

so it won't work

How can I stop this from happening.

Go to an Office application (Word, Outlook or like).  Click on File, Office Account and log in. See what the subscription says in terms of activation (or possibly too many activations).

Even so, with one install, you should check the Office Account to see what it says.

Try running a full Office Repair. Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Office and do a Full Repair (not quick repair).

Or call Microsoft Customer service: 1 (800) 642-7676
