MS Office 2013 Volume License Activation.
Like other Microsoft products, MS Office 2013 is available under the VL program ( Volume License ). We remind that Volume License is a licensing option for corporate products that allows to purchase one registered license which can be used to activate a limited (or unlimited) number of copies of a software product. A Volume License does not dispense from the necessity to activate software. However, it is easier than the activation of a retail version, and this procedure can be managed centrally. We ll talk about how to activate new Office 2013 on the corporate licensing program Volume License.
Office 2013 supports three types of Microsoft product activation in an enterprise environment.
AD-based activation of Office 2013 is available for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 only, while KMS and MAK are available both in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
It should be noted that during Office 2013 activation with a KMS not only Office (Word, Excel, etc.) and Lync (now goes with Office), but also products like Visio 2013 and Project 2013 are activated.
Now we will consider all the ways to activate Office 2013 for corporate customers.
Tip . Info about the activation of MS Office 2016 Enterprise version is available here.
Active Directory-Based Activation (ADBA) of Office 2013.
It should be reminded that the opportunity to activate Microsoft products with Active Directory appeared in Windows Server 2012. The function that allows to activate Windows or Office is called Active Directory-Based Activation – ADBA. When using ADBA, an Office 2013 client uses the existing Active Directory infrastructure to activate the product. I. e. if Office 2013 is installed on a client computer with Windows 8 and a VLK (Volume License Key) is used as a key, Office will activate automatically after including this computer into the AD domain.
Important . Active Directory-Based activation cannot be used to activate Office 2010.
How to Install Active Directory-Based Activation Support for Office 2013.
Download the Microsoft Office 2013 Volume License Pack from Microsoft Download Center webpage.
Run the downloaded file (English version — with administrator permissions on Windows Server 2012 with the Volume Activation Services role.
Open Volume Activation Tools console from the Server Manager snap-in.
Check Active Directory-Based activation.
Then enter the KMS ( KMS Host Volume Activation Key ) that your company has received and, optionally, its name.
Now you have to activate the key in Microsoft (online or by phone.
After you completed these steps and the replication was successful, Office 2013, Visio 2013 and Project 2013 with a volume license will be automatically activated with the AD directory service.
KMS Activation of Office 2013.
Activation of Microsoft products with KMS server uses a client-server model in which there is a central node with the KMS node role. KMS is installed and activated with a VL key on a chosen server. Later all clients of this server connect not to any of the Microsoft servers, but to this central server to activate.
In general, KMS-activation of Office 2013 doesn t differ from the activation of Office 2010. The only thing that should be noted is that in Windows Server 2003 the support of the KMS-server for Office 2013 is now absent.
When activating Office 2013 in KMS, the product is activated for the period of 180 days, and from time to time the activation status is renewed. Remember that to activate Office 2013 on the KMS-server you need to have at least five clients.
KMS Support Installation for Office 2013.
Windows Server 2012 uses a special graphic tool to manage a KMS-server – Volume Activation Tools . To get an opportunity to activate Office 2013 on the KMS-server, you have to install Microsoft Office 2013 Volume License Pack (like with the AD-based activation), select Key Management Service (KMS) as the type of activation in Volume Activation Tools, enter the CSVLK key and activate it in Microsoft.
If there are no servers with Windows Server 2012 in your company and only servers with Windows Server 2008 R2 are available, you won t be able to use Volume Activation Tools.
To get support for Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Office 2013 activation on the KMS-server with Windows Server 2008 R2, you have to install a special update. (or KB2885698 for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2.
Download and install Microsoft Office 2013 Volume License Pack (see the link above). Click Yes when asked Would you like to enter a Microsoft Office 2013 KMS host product key and proceed with Internet activation now.
Enter the enterprise VLK key for MS Office 2013.
The system connects to the Microsoft server and, if the connection is successful, a message of successful installation and activation of Office 2013 key appears.
The current Office 2013 status on the KMS-server can be checked using the following command.
Activation of MS Office 2013 with a MAK Product Key.
A MAK key is used only once to activate Office 2013 on the Microsoft server online. Each MAK key can activate a certain number of systems determined by a corporate agreement. I. e. each MAK activation is added to the total number of activations on Microsoft servers.
There are two ways to activate Office with a MAK key.
MAK Independent Activation . Each computer on which MAK activation is going to take place has to be connected to the Internet. This means of activation will suit the company with all computers joined into a corporate network.
MAK Proxy Activation . The activation requests from clients are sent by a special proxy server that can be configured using VAMT 3.0 console.
So, MAK keys are better to use either for the computers outside the corporate network/seldom log on to it or if the number of editions to be activated is less than five.
Office 2013 Keys for KMS Activation.
You should understand that the way to activate Office 2013 depends on the type of the installed key. All computers with the volume license have a KMS key preinstalled (to be specific, this key is called a GVLK – Generic Volume License Key). This allows to simplify system deployment in the corporate environment, because there s no need to enter a product key on each computer. If Office 2013 is installed with the KMS key (GVLK), it can automatically find and activate itself on the KMS-server or in Active Directory infrastructure.
In the next table KMS keys for Office 2013 and its components are given.

At the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency we are getting ready to deploy new Window 7 workstations and we are in need of installing Office 2013 on each computer. We are an isolated Lab network (no internet access). We have 100 computers to deploy and need assistance with figuring out what type of license to procure.
What we general due is create a standard image of a machine that has all the needed software loaded. Then we just reimage this to the other computers. We are uncertain how we would activate the Office 2013 standard edition. We basically need the software to be a stand alone type version.
Should we get a volume license and use KMS or some type of perpetual license? Thank you.

From a management perspective is much more convenient to use volume license model with KMS server. All computers with Office 2013 should have access to internal KMS server. KMS server itself does not need to have Internet access. GVLK key on KMS server can be activated once by phone. To activate clients you must execute following commands, described in this article: cscript /inpkey: KBKQT-2NMXY-JJWGP-M62JB-92CD4 cscript cscript / act Alternatively, you can purchase a MAK key, but each copy of Office 2013 you must activate by phone.

Hi, I have tried running the office licence pack on a 2008 R2 box with the KMS service installed on it, it already has the update to add support for 2012 and win7. When I run the install exe a cscript window comes up, stays blank and then disappears, any idea why? It never prompts for the Office 2013 KMS key. cheers in advance . Thanks.
