    Default Microsoft Office Activation Problem

    Hi everyone, long time not post on here,

    so I upraded my laptop to windows 10 on release, and so far its been ok.



    However, ive been having an issue with my office 2013 install. I'll preface this by saying the Office 365 software was provided through my university for free.



    It installs the full version of office 2013 for up to 5 machines, so there's no product key to enter, just run the downloaded installer.



    On the page where i download the installer, it lists my laptop as having one of the 5 available installs of Office.



    It installed just fine, but when i opened a word document and it displayed the error message " Microsoft Office cannot verify the license for this product. You should repair the Office program by using Control Panel".



    Both the quick repair, and the online repair fail to fix anything, and the problem persists.



    Is it a windows 10 problem, and is there a fix, or should i go back to Windows 7??

    The list of the 5 activations is probably showing your laptop before the upgrade to win10.
    Remove it from that list (deactivate) and then try again.

    I hadnt installed it before upgrading to windows 10.

    the install page shows only my laptop as having it installed, there's still 4 activations available

    Ah OK sorry didn't get that from the original post.

    Well I have Office 365 on my Windows 10 install and it hasn't a problem so probably not related to Windows 10.
    Check that you are signed in to your Office 365 account inside one of the Office programs.
