Folks,
For almost 9 months I have been using a legally license product key for Office 2016 Professional. Today I am warned that I have an unregistered product that will expire in 4 days. What's going on here?

We had a similar issue with Office 2013 at a client. We uninstall Office, start up as admin, installed Office and Activated it with the same key. That seems to have work (that is, it has so far remained activated).

Please let us know what they say. Thanks.
