Office PKC – Frequently Asked questions

What is the Microsoft Office Product Key Card?
Product Key Cards make installation fast and easy. Customers who purchase a PC that has the Office 2010 suites preloaded on their PC can purchase a Product Key Card for one of the three Office 2010 suites and use the 25-character Product Key inside the package to install the software on their PC. The Product Key Card package does not include a disc. Product Key Cards allow one activation on one PC.

How does the Product Key Card work?
A customer who purchases a PC that has the Office 2010 preloaded image can choose to purchase an Office 2010 traditional disc version or the new Office 2010 Product Key Card. If a customer only needs one installation for one preloaded PC and does not need or want a DVD, they can purchase the Product Key Card. They will then use the 25-character Product Key located inside the Product Key Card package to install and activate the preloaded image. No disc is required for installation.

Can I download a 64-bit version of Office 2010?
Yes, a 64-bit Office 2010 product backup is available. However, we recommend most users install the 32-bit version of Office 2010. The 64-bit installation of Microsoft Office 2010 products are for users who commonly use very large documents or data sets and need Office 2010 programs to access greater than 2GB of memory. There are some technical limitations with the 64-bit version and in order to install a 64-bit version of your Office 2010 product you must have a 64-bit supported operating system on your PC.

How many licenses /installations do Office Product Key Cards allow?
Each Product Key Card allows one user to activate one Office 2010 suite on one preloaded PC.

Can I install an Office Product Key Card on more than one PC?
No. The Office Product Key Card can only be installed on one PC. If you ever need to reinstall Office you can do so on the same PC on which Office was originally installed.

How do I install Office 2010?
If you have Office 2010 preloaded, click the Windows Start menu, click "Office 2010," and then click Activate. When prompted enter your 25-character Product Key.

The Office 2010 preloaded image is put onto new PCs by many computer manufacturers and offers an easy way to purchase and use Office with a new PC.

I purchased the Product Key Card but there is no Product Key inside the package?
