If you still have problems, please bring your computer to our office in Subiaco and we will fix the issues for you for a small fee. The latest versions of Microsoft Office (Office 365 and Office 2016, 2019) all need activating by logging into an Office 365 account. This is normally achieved upon installation, however we have noticed that Windows or Office automatic updates can sometimes result in the products being “Disabled” or requiring “Activation” These problems can occur in any or all of the Office products such as Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, Publisher, OneNote, Outlook, Infopath or Lync; by displaying one of the following messages (or similar) “Unlicensed Product” “Product Deactivated”   “We’re sorry, something went wrong and we can’t do this for you right now. Please try again later” or similar. You can re-activate Office 365 or Office 2016/2019  in a number of ways as follows 1) Repair Office 365 or Office 2016/2019 In Windows 7 or 8 locate “Control Panel” > “Programs” > “Programs and Features”   Highlight “Office 365 ProPlus” (do not click on it) and select the “Change” button Select “Quick Repair“.
