  • Make Office 2003 Request Serial on Load

    Hi Guys,

    This one is driving us nuts!

    The way we manage our software is by purchasing an OEM copy of windows xp and office 2003 with each machine. this serial of xp and office stay with that machine for its life. now to image the machine for windows its easy. Run sysprep, then on boot it asks for the serial, therefore, you can simply use the serial associated with that machine. Can this be done for office 2003? Can i install office 2003 without entering the serial, and then when it loads for the first time it prompts for the serial?

    There must be a way!!! ive tried setup /q but it gives an error about the serial not being there...

    Help!

    Cheers

    The registry key will be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\ Registration instead though for Office 2003.
