grace period in Office

by sglobus / October 29, 2013 6:54 PM PDT

Office 2013 pro plus, installed on windows 8.1
Not a trial edition. It's a regular edition that gives a 30 day grace period after installing, in which to activate.
If I reinstall, will that reset the grace period?
(my activation failed)

I doubt if the grace period will start again. But it's worth a try.
But why not contact the free Microsoft activation help to solve the issue of activation.

It's an one time deal. Otherwise why would anyone buy it?

-> Many folk can get along with LibreOffice. Did you try it?
