Why is this question in OSD Section?
office 365 is user based license as per my understanding.
User Should have office 365 mailbox and appropriate licenses.
Why you want to use device based license of office 365
Thanks for addressing anoop,Sorry i did’t find any category related to office :(..
We have E5 subscription in my setup and I have assigned users to use this subscription. However, whenever a new user launches Office on a new machine in our network for the first time, a Window pops up asking to click on ‘Activate’ button. I am using Excel app on HPC server (workbook offloading) and this is causing us a lot of problems because unless the user logs into each of the nodes (could be 10+ nodes) and press ‘activate’, the spreadsheet doesn’t run and HPC throws exceptions that Office is not activated.
Is there a way to get around this problem – i.e. Excel gets activated automatically without a need to press the ‘Activate’ button?
Unfortunately, I don’t have any answer to that question.
Ideally, all the apps from the office suite should have the same experience.
It’s bit strange when you say excel is OK but word is not
I think the activation is required only for any one of the products. For example,
the user is launches word first and then excel – word should get the popup window for activation ..but excel won’t get….
if the user launches excel first and then word … excel should get the pop window for activation ..but word won’t get…
This is what my understanding is…. but I could be wrong .
Auto activation is possible via XML files as I explained https://www.anoopcnair.com/sccm-deploy-install-office-365-proplus/
Thanks anoop this helps have made changes with config.xml and it works..
