ive signed into my tablet using a microsoft live account, i click on office and get the window showing the activate tab. i click the activate tab and up pops a sign in page via internet explorer for the live account.

so i dont sign in but extract the key from the url.

and then is this key still valid to a different microsoft live account because i havent signed in when i extracted the key from the url.


Your spot on Fred!

Extract that key and use that wherever you want


Thanks Dann. Much appreciated help/advice here. Good luck :)

At the risk of taking this off-topic, I'm looking to buy 2-3 Office 365 Personal keys if anyone wants to avoid the eBay/PP fees. Maybe drop me a PM?

Hello

I have a linx 10 and activated the office install and stacked the sub on a previous one I had with a linx 7. I then did the home upgrade for 7.99 but my linx 10 wouldn't charge so had to return it and got another one with another sub but this wouldn't stack as I had already upgraded. I was going to sell this on eBay but can no longer find the key. I had installed office to try to stack so uninstalled office and added another account but now there is no link to install it again to extract the key to sell.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Should this also work on the HP Stream 7? Just tried it and I don't get the key in the URL when I click on "Activate" in the Office 365 prompt at startup with and without a Microsoft account. I haven't logged into my Microsoft account after clicking the activate button as it's my understanding that would activate Office which I don't want to do on the tablet.

I have two licenses to sell on from my Linx 7 & 10. Guessing eBay is the best way?. What price should I expect??

Many thanks,

Question.. I bought my linx 8 as a '14day customer return' - I'm very dubious that someone's bought it, extracted the key, sold it then returned.. I wanted to sell my product key on eBay... Is there any way I can verify the key is unused without actually attempting to activate myself?

I'm not 100% certain on this, you'd maybe have to contact microsoft and ask them!?
