    ----
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 "....you 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:

Quote:
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.
