Default Ms Office activation

Hello,

I am a new member and i will need your help.

I want to activate Microsoft Office Professional 2013.

Can you tell me how to buy a product key for the activation and the cost?



Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Dimitris

A simple Web search will supply the info. You will need to buy a copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2013. The price depends on where you buy it from.

You question has no apparent relevance to the topic of this thread and I have no idea what you mean by 'the following'.

Once an Office installation has been activated with a particular key, it remains activated with that key. The only way to use a different key is to upgrade/downgrade to either a different edition of your current version (e.g. from 'Home & Student' to 'Professional' or vice-versa) or to another version (e.g. from 2013 to 2016).

If you input an invalid key, it won't be accepted and Office won't activate until you input a valid one. Accidentally inputting a 'wrong' key that is valid is extremely unlikely.

Have you actually activated your Office installation? Doing so isn't possible if the key is invalid, so Office would still be waiting for you to provide a valid one.

When trying to activate, I get this message:
This product cannot be activated because the product key is not valid.
