Unlicensed Product and Activation Errors in Office

If Office activation fails, you’ll see Unlicensed Product or Non-commercial use / Unlicensed Product in the title bar of your Microsoft Office Setup apps, and most features of Office are disabled.

To restore all features of Office, you’ll need to fix the problem that’s causing activation to fail.
