Rearm Office 2010 (i can't!)

Hi,

I'm trying to rearm Office 2010, but i think that i rearm it 4 times. I think that cannot rearm again but, is possible someone tell me how i can see how much times i rearm office 2010?

There are another way to rearm more than 4 times?

PS. I try THIS but my computer don't have the "OSPPRUN.exe".

I've google-searched for an OSPPRUN.exe download, with no luck. Any suggestions?

Considering that extending past the rearm period starts entering pirating territory, I have two suggestions you probably won't like:

A) Buy it

B) Uninstall it

Hi,

When you install Microsoft Office 2010, you will have to enter the 25 character product key first before the installation will start. After installation, a Microsoft Office Activation Wizard window will open asking you to activate Office 2010 over the internet or by telephone. If you choose not to activate by clicking on the Cancel button, you can freely use it for an extra 30 days before the product becomes unlicensed. When Office 2010 becomes unlicensed, the program can still be launched but you won’t be able to make any changes and all the icons at the menu bar are grayed out and disabled.
Fortunately you can do an emergency rearm of the activation to give you another 30 days free usage before it turns unlicensed again. All you need to do is to run the file OSPPREARM.EXE file located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\. This is absolutely legal because the rearm file is created and given by Microsoft for free. Simply run the file and it will tell you that “Microsoft Office rearm successful”. You now have an additional 30 days to use the Office 2010 suite.

You can rearm Office 2010 a maximum of 5 times which should give you 150 days plus the initial 30 days making it a total of 180 days (6 months) of Office 2010 usage without activation.... But I tried this and it didnt work! You have to open your cmd promt in Administrator mode, then type this command in... net user Administrator /active:yes then hit enter... It will say command completed successfully... Now log off your accout, then log onto the new Administrator accout, this is a super user acount! Now do all the above and it will work

Our own thread on this indicates that initial rearm + 4 more is the maximum.

The OP thinks they have used up all 5.

Rearming it anymore is basically, illegal.

The advice given (buy it or remove it) is the ONLY advice we should be providing at this point.
