Unlicensed Office 2013 Error

Apparently, Microsoft Office products that you run per an Office 365 subscription are deciding that they are not licensed. There is a fixit out there for it, and I had a client run it, and it seems to have done nothing. My guess is, it was because he had not closed all Microsoft applications prior to running it. Anyway, the following (lifted from SpiceWorks) worked, so I am posting it here, mostly so I do not forget how to do this next time.

  1. Make sure all Office programs are closed. This will ensure the script runs properly.
  2. Open the Command Prompt as Administrator.
  3. Navigate to the Office Installation folder %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\.
  4. Run “cscript ospp.vbs /act”.

I opened up an Office product and all was well.
