In order for you to activate office you will need to add some keys into the registry.

Next you will have to navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform. Add the following string values under this key:

  • KeyManagementServiceName (insert server address)
  • KeyManagementServicePort (insert server port, default 1688)

If you don’t know the values for your server ask your Sys Admin or look them up in regedit on a windows machine that has an activated copy.

Now open and exit any office application. A new key should have been created under HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform

(You may have to refresh the registry editor with F5 to see it,)

Under this new key now add a new binary value:

  • VLRenewalSchedule (any value)

Now run the KMSEmulator.exe with wine and wait for a prompt to come up. Once the prompt comes up Open any Office product and it should automatically activate.
