Activation Keys added before or after Sysprep

I use volume licensing MAK keys for my Windows clients.  Do I add one of these keys to my original setup for Windows 10 Education activation before I sysprep it or do I wait till later.   Also what about non-Windows activations like Adobe and Microsoft Office.  Do any activation keys for these applications need to be added before I sysprep or are all activations done afterwards?

License activations are completed after you apply an image that has been sysprep'ed.  Sysprep is used to delete the registry keys associated with identifying the operating system (and even the HAL if you so chose).
