View Full Version : End of support - activation.

Hi, just out of interest.

Take for eg., Office 2000 is no longer supported. Windows 2000 is ending in July. If a person needs it activated, reinstalled etc .. is that still available?

If not it could be a way to force people to newer OS (and hardware).

Yep! - just means the MS are no longer offering support or "fixes" for the product(s).

Some Service Packs may also no longer be available.

Some sites say you dont have to activate Office 2000. Only versions from Office XP. But other sites say unless SR-1 (if its inc with the install), you do have to activate it

There are ways to bypass the activation....
