Easy Way to Activate Microsoft Office 2013 without product key

Microsoft Office 2013 is a widely-used productivity suite that includes essential applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. To use all the features of Microsoft Office 2013, you need to activate it with a valid product key. However, in some cases, you might not have the product key, or you might have lost it. This article will provide you with various ways to activate Microsoft Office 2013 without a product key.

Use Command Prompt to Activate Office 2013

Using Command Prompt is one of the easiest ways to activate Office 2013 without a product key. Follow these steps:

Step 1: Locate the Office Installation on Your PC

First things first, you need to find the location of your installed Microsoft Office on your PC. Depending on the architecture of your Windows operating system, the path may vary. If you’re not sure which one you’re using, don’t worry. You can simply run all the commands listed below.

if exist "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" set folder="%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15"
if exist "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" set folder="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office15"
if exist "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" set folder="%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14"
if exist "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" set folder="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office14"

Step 2: Activate Your Office Using KMS Client Key

Once you’ve located your Office installation, it’s time to activate it using the KMS client key. To do this, ensure that your PC is connected to the internet and run the following command:

cscript %folder%\ospp.vbs /inpkey:VYBBJ-TRJPB-QFQRF-QFT4D-H3GVB
cscript %folder%\ospp.vbs /inpkey:YC7DK-G2NP3-2QQC3-J6H88-GVGXT
cscript %folder%\ospp.vbs /sethst:kms8.msguides.com
cscript %folder%\ospp.vbs /setprt:1688 cscript %folder%\ospp.vbs /act

If you encounter the error code 0xC004F074, it means that your internet connection may be unstable or the server may be busy. To resolve this issue, ensure that your device is connected to a stable internet connection and try running the “act” command again until you succeed.

Activate Office 2013 using Batch File

Using a batch file is a simple and easy way to activate Office 2013 without a product key. Follow these steps:
