MS Office 2010 - no Activation possible

Workaround Tuesday 21 June 2011 at 17:38


I'm new to POS and started using it, because I need MS Office 2010 Home and Business running on my Ubuntu 10.10 at work.

Installing my original MS Office 2010 from CD with POS, WINE 1.3.9 and the Script from Tinou was all easy.

Now I got one serious issue. Online Activation doesn't work (abort error: undefined error..... (0x8004FC13). Unfortunately the activation per telephone doesn't work either. When I start it, the dialogue box appears, but after choosing the my country the right telephone number as well as the field for entering the product key doesn't come up. The field for entering the Confirmation ID received per phone stays greyed out. Updating Office 2010 doesn't work either.

I could use Office without activation until trial period ends and then just reinstall... well, obviously not the favoured solution.

May there just be an driver/dll/whatever in WINE be missing for having the online functions?
Happy for all your ideas
best regards
