How to Activate Microsoft office 2007


Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:

  1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\

  2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select “Open With…” in the right click menu.
  3. In the “Open With” window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file. In Vista, if you can’t see the Notepad option, simply double click the “Other Programs” to unhide it.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

  5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

  6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
  7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.
Even if these donot work:

1. Go to this location:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\

2. Find the file named:

Proof.XML file

3. Then just rename the file to proof1.xml, before doing this make sure you have ownership for the folder completely, right click properties of the folder you can add your name and enter the rights(full rights). This will activate the product....

As usual, as it’s a hack, and before you purchase a valid product key for it, you won’t be able to AND can’t access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.
