I installed it, ran Windows Update to get the latest patches and now I want to activate Office.</p> <p>In the activation dialog I can either login to an account having a license or enter the product key.</p> <p>I enter the product key, Office accepts it but the next time I start Office it asks me again for the key. But I did not get any error entering the key.</p> <p>What can I do now?</p> 0 Answer by juergen d for Office 2016 does not activate juergen d 2018-09-04T20:24:42Z 2018-09-04T20:24:42Z <p>Adding all patches <strong>before</strong> activating Office seems to lead to errors.
