A way to change the product key for office 2016

ts very easy.

You can do it with vbs file.

    1. Open a command prompt. For instance via:

      • Start-> All Programs-> Accessories-> Command Prompt
      • Windows XP 
        Start-> Run: cmd
      • Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 
        Start-> type: cmd

        2. In the command prompt, type the following:

        • Office 2016 (32-bit) on a 32-bit version of Windows 
          cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
        • Office 2016 (32-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows 
          cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
        • Office 2016 (64-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows 
          cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus

        3. You should now get a screen with some license details such as the license name, type and the last 5 characters of the Product Key.


        You can also change the Product Key via the OSPP.VBS script. Instead of using the /dstatus switch, you must use the /inpkey:value switch where you should replace value for your Product Key.

        For example:

        cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs" /inpkey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
