Product Activation Phone Number

By joegrosskopf ·
I had to re-install MS Project Pro for the 3rd time at my office due to changes in project managers. This time, my activation would not work (exceeded). I went to the telephone activation page and both numbers (866-542-3062 and 509-895-1135) have been disconnected. In the usually Microsoft freindly way, the new number is nowhere to be found on their site oh and if you want to ask them a question, put your credit card number in. I am so frustrated with Microsoft right now. Does anyone know of a new number for activating Office Products?

Firstly it shouldn't matter which version of Office it is you should just need to ring the same place as they cover all the versions of Office that are available and need Activation.

Secondly there should be a drop down list on that page which when you chose your country or location has the phone numbers unique to your location if these are not correct maybe running the Full Update before attempting to Activate the MS Product will cure your current problem.

I would always tell people to have a system fully patched before activating it because it's not an unknown thing to have a Patch cause the system to fail and need that application to be removed and reloaded so it's always the better option to have everything fully patched before attempting to ring MS for an Activation Key.

The original number you gave me was correct. Even though the message said Office XP, Office 2003 was OK. Thanks

And thanks Microsoft for the wonderful new method of anti-piracy!

To start windows activation over the phone, use the command "SLUI 4" in command prompt with administrator rights.
