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).
