Windows 7: Microsoft Office 2010 activation failed 0xc004f074

Hi there
Try THIS to get license key (BELARC) (Takes a little while to run so don't get impatient).

Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit, for software, hardware and security configuration information on your computer. Software license management, IT asset management, cyber security audits, and more.

This turned out to be a complicated story, but basically after more research I discovered that the copy of Office on my friend's machine is pirated; apparently someone in the IT dept where she works installed it. Obviously it can't be activated and she needs to either buy a license or move to something else. I want to thank everyone again who responded here. Sorry this turned out to be a wild goose chase.

For the moving on part:

LibreOffice is free and can work with a number of Office documents and also Works.
Home | LibreOffice - Free Office Suite - Fun Project - Fantastic People

Also there's OpenOffice but latest version don't work with Works files.
Apache OpenOffice - The Free and Open Productivity Suite
