MS Office : 2010
Office 2010 Toolkit Functions
- EZ-Activator: This is a universal and simple activator for Office 2010. It can use KMS activation even if you are using Retail License. EZ-Activator gathers information about your Office 2010 licensing status to provide the best method of activation. It can automatically attempt possible fixes in case of activation failure, and can reverse all changes in case of total failure.
- Office 2010 Information: This states if Office 2010 is installed on your PC and whether it is 32 bit (x86), 64 bit (x64) or 32 bit running on 64 bit OS (x86-64).
- Office Uninstaller: Run a script that will uninstall and cleanly remove Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office 2003 and later is supported.
- Office 2010 AutoKMS: AutoKMS is a scheduled task that will renew your 180 day KMS activation. Unlike other KMS activators, AutoKMS does not run 24/7 or only at the last minute with the hope it won’t fail, and leaves no traces of itself other than a scheduled task and exe file. It only attempts to activate KMS licenses (which saves a lot of time if you have non-KMS licenses such as MAK or Retail active). It will run at startup and then every 24 hours and attempt KMS activation a set amount of times. The Install/Uninstall buttons are used to install or remove AutoKMS.
- Office 2010 AutoRearm: AutoRearm is a scheduled task that will allow you to use Office 2010 in grace period forever. It requires that you have at least 1 available rearm upon install. It works by taking a backup of your activation and restoring it when you run out of rearms. It runs on startup and then every 24 hours, and checks how many days left you have on your grace period. It will rearm if you have 5 or fewer days before your grace period expires. If the rearm fails because the count ran out (which is normal and inevitable), it restores the backup, which puts the count where it was upon install of AutoRearm. Because this grace period is likely expired, it then rearms (which is why at least 1 rearm is required). The backup will be restored upon uninstall.NOTE: Retail Office 2010 nags you for activation on startup. You can stop this by converting to VL and using KMS Product Key, which is done automatically by default.
- Attempt Office 2010 Activation: This will attempt to activate any and all Office 2010 products.
- Check Office 2010 Activation Status: This will display detailed information on Office 2010 activation including how many days you are licensed for, what Product Key and type of license you are using, and much more.
- Rearm Office 2010: This resets the 30 day grace period that all Office 2010 products have. Rearm can be done up to 5 times. The available button will tell you how many rearms you have available.
License Files Tab
- Add License: This will add the ability to use a Product Key for a certain Office 2010 product. You do not even need that Office 2010 product installed.
It will install a provided Product Key if available; else you will have to install your own product key with Key Manager after License Add succeeds. All the provided Retail Product Keys are trials or blacklisted but can be rearmed for temporary use. The provided VL Product Keys are KMS Product Keys.
EX: This can be used to use Professional Plus License on Standard. This also lets you convert from Retail to VL. Set License Type to Volume and select the Office 2010 product that you want to convert to VL, then press Add. Vice Versa applies if you wish to convert VL to Retail. NOTE: There are no VL versions of Home and Business, Home and Student, and Professional so convert them to Professional Plus.
- Delete All: This deletes all licensing information for Office 2010. This is meant to be used if your license details are corrupted or marked as tampered. This will force Office 2010 to repair itself and it will be in either Notifications Mode (VL) or Reduced-Functionality Mode (Retail). You will probably not be able to rearm to get out. You will have to activate which may fail with KMS Keygen. This is a last resort and should be used sparingly unless using EZ-Activator.NOTE: When Office 2010 repairs itself, it restores licenses for what you have physically installed; any Licenses added/converted using License Add or EZ-Activator will not be restored.
Product Keys Tab
- Install: This will install an Office 2010 Product Key, using either a provided Product Key based upon your selection or a custom Product Key that you enter. A Product Key cannot be installed unless you have that Office 2010 License installed.
- Uninstall: This will remove an Office 2010 Product Key, either removing the Product Key based upon your selection or a custom Product Key that you enter.
- Check: This will give information on an Office 2010 Product Key, using either a provided Product Key based upon your selection or a custom Product Key that you enter. This information is what you would get from a PIDX checker.
License Backup Tab
- Backup: This saves your Office 2010 licensing information so it can be restored later. This information is machine and install specific, so it usually won’t work after a reformat and definitely won’t work on different hardware. It saves the current state but does not stop the clock, so a 25 day old backup restored will be whatever days you had minus 25 when you took the backup. Backups are stored in subdirectories in a “Backups” folder that will be created in the same directory as the Office 2010 Toolkit executable using the name you entered.
- Restore: Restores all of the information saved in a previous backup. It will take a temporary backup of your current state, delete your current state, and then restore the backup. If it fails to restore it will try to restore the temporary backup.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (It is built into Vista/7 so only XP users need to install this).
- Office 2010 should be installed as most of the toolkit functions are obviously useless without Office 2010 installed.
