[Micronet] Registering campus licensed Office suite after installation

Bruce Satow
Dear Folks,

I got tired of telling people the install key for the campus license version of Office.

So I found out that after installation, you can run Word, then go to File, then Help, you can enter the product key and activate it.

However, is there another way of installing the suite so that it will prompt you to enter the product key when running setup?  Like an argument switch?  Just curious...

Take a look at the Office Customization Tool - it will allow you to create a customized setup package that could include your key.

Bruce,
 
If you run the office setup by command line with the /admin switch then the office customization tool opens, and from there you can customize many install options including the ability to embedd the MAK activation key so that subsequent office installs will be automatically activated.
 
To apply the customizations, save the office customization tool generated file (with *.msp extension) to install_media\Updates. Name it athing you want - and make sure only 1 file with the *.msp extension exists in that location.
 
To have office setup ignore customizations, simply remove *.msp files (from \Updates) or rename them to a non-.msp extension.
 
I knowed you asked about switches that prompt for the MAK key, but I thought this may be an easier administrative pathway to take, if applicable in your case.
