Why Office 2010 activation failed and how to activate it successfully?

This is mainly because of its highly advanced features and extremely user friendly interface. No matter which version of MS Office you were using earlier, you can easily upgrade it to Office 2010. You will be amazed to know that if you were using Office 2007 before, then you get an added advantage as the system requirements for both the programs are almost same. But sometimes, when you try to activate Office 2010 on your computer, the process fails completely.

Wrong product key
When you download Office 2010 from the Internet, you are provided with a product key which you have to enter in order to activate it on your computer. Most probably, the Office 2010 activation failed on your computer because you entered incorrect product key. In such a situation, you should re-check the product key and enter in the correct one.
System requirements not met
Like any other software program or hardware device, Office 2010 also needs some system requirements that need to be met so that you can start using it on your computer. For example, Office 2010 needs at least 500 MHz of computer processor, 256 MB of RAM, 3 GB of hard disk memory and 1024 x 576 resolution of display. If your computer does not meet any of these requirements, then chances are that the activation of Office 2010 on your computer will fail.
While you are downloading Office 2010 from the Internet, you should make sure that you are using the most authentic site only. The best site to download it from is the official website of Microsoft. Also make sure that the copy of Office 2010 you are purchasing is original and authentic. The original copy of Office 2010 will give you a product key number which you will have to enter while activating it on your computer.
After downloading the Office 2010 program from the manufacturer's website, enter the product key number in the area provided, accept the terms and conditions, click on the 'Continue' button, click on the 'Finish' button and restart your computer. Before doing all this, make sure that your computer meets all the system requirements and you have downloaded the program from an authentic site only.
