Hello folks

I have a number of machines (desktop & latops) that will not activate Office 2010 via the internet for standard users. We have a Server 2008 R2 + Win7 clients. The firewall has all the necessary exceptions.

Standard users get an error " must be logged on as an administrator to activate...." from the activation wiz.

As an admin...Office activates fine.

Any suggestions will be appreciated

From Microsoft website:

Activate as a standard user
Office 2010 does not require administrator permissions for KMS activation. However, volume editions require administrator permissions for MAK activation. Administrators can enable users who have non-administrator permissions to activate with MAK by setting the appropriate registry key in the deployments or in the master image:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\UserOperations = 1

This registry key can also be set through the ospp.vbs script. For more information about ospp.vbs, see Tools to configure client computers in Office 2010.
