You can extend your office if u don't have product key
to Start > All Program > Accessories and right click
on "Command Prompt" then click on"Run as administrator".
Alternatively you can run Command Prompt as administrator by typing"cmd" in
the start menu search box and pressing Shift + Ctrl + Enter.
Then, Go to
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft
shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\OSPPREARM.EXE (copy path)
And (paste) in command prompt
So type the above full path of the tool
OSPPREARM.exe in the command prompt and hit enter. Your command should look
done! But remind that you can apply this trick only for five times. If you run
the above command for the sixth time you will get an error message like this
It is recommended to wait until you only have only 1 day to activate left before doing this to make the most out of the 6 times you have to use this rearm option. If you use this command after done 30 days/expire day your office will not be genuine so use this before expiry day/30days...
