Hi

I bought a used Linx 10 yesterday and it looks the 365 code hasn't been activated. I followed the instructions to get the URL and I don't get anything like the 5 lots of 5 alphanumeric.
It directs me to the office sign in page.
Can anybody help please?

Thanks in advance

Make sure you're not connected to the internet, then try it!

as soon as the internet explorer page opens, press STOP before the page loads?

Hello
Like a previous poster I have already registered with one account and therefore cannot find the activation key.
I have tried the "set up another local account" method but this does not seem to work as Office already installed.

Does anyone have any ideas where I can get the key in order to install on my PC?

Many Thanks
Richard

Hello, new poster here.

I saw the post a couple of pages back about the 6 month time limit on activating an unused Office 365 subscription on a Linx, but I'm not sure when it starts counting from. Is it from the moment the tablet is powered up for the first time?

If I buy a used Linx that was originally turned on a few times last year (but Office never activated), will the code now be invalid? Does factory resetting do anything to the countdown?

Thanks!

I've tried all the suggestions here and although it states that I have until October 3 to activate it, whatever I try, it wants to try to activate it, so can't see a way to extract the key.

After a recovery install I managed to get the key.

Just checking, if I put the key in it and press "Get Started" will it active my code?
