Chapter 1. What's New in Office XP? > Understanding Product Activation

Understanding Product Activation

After you install Microsoft Office XP (which is discussed in Appendix A, "Installing Microsoft Office XP") and start one of the Office applications, a product activation window opens, as shown in Figure 1.3. You can activate Microsoft Office XP on only one computer; trying to activate it on subsequent computers will fail.

Activating your copy of Microsoft Office XP is crucial. If the product is not activated, it runs only for a limited number of times before it becomes deactivated and unusable. This new feature is an effort by Microsoft to stop software piracy related to Microsoft Office. You can activate Microsoft Office XP using the Internet or by phone. Just follow the prompts for activation after you install Microsoft Office XP from the Office CD.
