I was just trying to get an idea of how many people have problems with Microsoft Office activation. I bought my daughter an iMac for use at university. She downloaded a copy of Office 365 which she got free from University. This tended to work quite well, but every now and then would complain it was not activated. Sometimes this was a real pain when documents were left on the desktop and at some point during the next day Office would de-activate and not allow you to save changes. I recently got a copy of Office from my workplace using the "Microsoft Home Use Program". This has been behaving but this morning after restarting when installing updates I again got the dreaded "you must activate". After logging in to Microsoft it still refused to activate, saying I must try later or phone. I will have to spend yet more hours later trying to fix this problem. I have gone through the forums trying numerous suggestions for uninstalling/re-installing/re-registering etc., but I still get the problem every now and then. Do other people have these problems? Would paying for a full 365 subscription solve these problems? Is this purely a problem with the Mac version of Office? On my MacBook I am Microsoft free, I just use Pages and Numbers, but my daughter really does need Office for her university work.
