Free Utilities Out There To Help Recover Your Office Serial Key

12/13/2021by admin

Luckily, there are a couple of free tools out there to help you recover Windows product key from the BIOS/UEFI. Windows 8 Product Key Viewer is a little tool developed to recover Windows 8/8.1 product key from BIOS/UEFI as well as hard drive.

Learning has never been so easy!

Having been on Microsoft Office 365 for a few months now, we started to notice that when users who had activated software on a PC were removed from Office 365, the software would go into 'grace period' and would continually notify the new user of the PC that there was a problem. The trouble was I could not figure out how to reassign the software license to the new user. Finally I have found steps that will accomplish this without having to repair/reinstall office.

Free

5 Steps total

Step 1: Open Command Prompt on PC

Open a Command Prompt window, and then take one of the following actions:

• If you installed the 64-bit version of Office 2016, move to the following folder: C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice16
• If you installed the 32-bit version of Office 2016, move to the following folder: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice16

Step 2: Display the Current License(s)

Type the following command to display the license status. Note the last five characters of any and all license keys that display in the output:

cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus

Step 3: Remove the License(s)

Now run the following command as many times as needed to remove all of the license keys you noted from the previous step.

Recover

cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:

Step 4: Restart the Computer

Once the remove commands are successfull, close the command prompt and restart the PC.

Step 5: Reactivate MS Office 2016 with New Account

Launch one of the MS Office 2016 applications (I like to use Word). The application should prompt you to reactivate the by providing your sign-on ID. Enter in the new user's credentials and the software will now be licensed under their ID.

This should also work on 2013 if you modify the path to end with 'Office15'

    Trying to find a way to remove expired license of O365 for 2 days, even Microsoft didn't provide a comprehensive way to remove it.

    Your method works great for me. Thanks for sharing!

    Step 5 didnt work with me so i would do this instead
    cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:value
    Install a product key (replaces existing key) with user-provided product key. Value parameter applies.

    So is this how home users are regulated when they are terminated or move to another company? Will their software enter a grace period and then stop working? That would be great.

    Yes, there is a grace period. I am forgetting how long, but I want to say 90 days?! Once the grace period is up they have the choice of using it in limited mode or entering their own activation key.

    I accidentally registered/associated an Office 2013 product key to my Microsoft account. The software has not been installed on my computer.

    So I should skip Steps 1 to 4 ?
    But the software is not installed, so I can't really follow Step 5 ?

    wayneng - you should be able to remove the association on your account through the Office365 portal (https://login.microsoftonline.com). Under software it shows the systems it is installed on and then you can 'remove' any of the systems from there. This does not uninstall the software (which is fine in your case) it just deactivates that license.

    Thank you! This worked great because my HUP Office Pro showed an activated license and trial license under the Account tab. I used your instructions to remove the trial license.

    The following script will find the product key for O365 (ProPlus in this case) and unlicensed the product. Its in powershell so you can invoke-command it against a remote workstation as you need to by doing the following from a PS prompt:

    invoke-command -computername -credential (get-credential) -filepath

    *** the credential portion will ask you for credentials make sure the ones you use have admin rights on the workstation ***

    Here is the script:

    # store the license info into an array
    $license = cscript ‘C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice15OSPP.VBS’ /dstatus

    #license name from /dstatus
    $o365 = “OfficeO365ProPlusR_Subscription1 edition”

    #loop till the end of the array searching for the $o365 string
    for ($i=0; $i -lt $license.Length; $i++){

    if ($license[$i] -match $o365){

    $i += 6 #jumping six lines to get to the product key line in the array, check output of dstatus and adjust as needed for the product you are removing
    $keyline = $license[$i] # extra step but i would rather deal with the variable as a string than an array, could be removed i guess, efficiency is not my concern
    $prodkey = $keyline.substring($keyline.length – 5, 5) # getting the last 5 characters of the line (prodkey)

    }
    }

    #removing the key from the workstation
    cscript ‘C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice15OSPP.VBS’ /unpkey:$prodkey
