Activate Microsoft Office

This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):

Windows

Overview

Board-appointed faculty and staff can download a copy of Microsoft Office from the software download site for their university-owned machine. If the computer is joined to the Active Directory domain, product activation takes place automatically. If not, manual activation is required. Computers must also be connected to the university network periodically to allow it to ‘check in’ with the KMS (Key Management Server). If the computer is not on campus regularly, the VPN Client will allow remote users to meet this requirement and keep Office 2013 functioning.

The Office Software Protection Platform script (ospp.vbs script) is downloaded automatically with the installation of Office 2013 from the support site and can be used to authorize the program. Follow the steps below to run the script.  

Note:  If Office 2010 is being activated, then replace “Office15” in all of the directions below with “Office14”.  While Windows 8 is displayed, these directions work on other versions of Windows as well.

Step 1

Go to the Start Menu.

Windows 8 Start
Go to the Start Menu.

Step 2

Type cmd in the search box (or go to Apps in Windows 8).

Windows should find a program called cmd, or the Command Prompt.

Right-click on the program icon.

Select Run as Administrator.

Windows 8 Apps Screen
Run the Command Prompt program as Administrator.

Step 3

Use the cd command (change directory) to navigate to the Office 2013 location and find the Office 15 folder.

  1. Type "cd \" to get to the root directory (C:\) - Please note, if Microsoft Office is not located in your C:\ drive, you will need to type in the correct drive letter (for example "cd d:" to change to the D:\ drive).
  2. Once at "C:\", you will need to navigate to the Office15 folder. 
    • If you are running 32-bit Office 2013 on a 64-bit operating system, type into the command prompt the following: cd Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15 
    • If you are running 32-bit Office 2013 on a 32-bit operating system, type into the command prompt the following: cd Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15
  3. Once in the Office 15 folder, type in the following command (note the space between ospp.vbs and /sethst:kms.uidaho.edu): cscript ospp.vbs /sethst:kms.uidaho.edu
  4. Then type in the following command (note the space between ospp.vbs and /act): cscript ospp.vbs /act

Your license for Office 365 should now be activated.

Activate Office 2015 Script
Use the cd command (change directory) to navigate to the Office 2013 location and find the Office 15 folder.
