    I have set up a Microsoft account and have entered my 25-character product key and this still won’t activate my programs (install). I’m almost sorry I purchased this, when I purchased my computer. This is to be an easy set up, but it’s everything but that.

    I ve installed the Microsoft office 365 Home premium on my PC win8.1. However, when I opened the word account I didn’t see ‘product activated’ under the product information. I only see subscription product’..However, when I access Microsoft ‘My account ‘ all the installation details appear and I also have a confirmation email of successfully activated from Microsoft.

    please help me see the ‘product activated’ word.

    I purchased an Office 2013 in July of this year and PC World installed it onto my computer at the time of purchase. However I had a problem with the computer and it needed to be set back to factory settings which has resulted in Office 2013 not being on there anymore. I have tried to re activate the 25 digit number but it will not work. Could you please send me instructions how to reactivate this as I need this programme for my work. Thank you in anticipation
