Office `07 Activation Hack

1. In Windows Explorer, browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\

2. Open Proof.XML with Notepad.

3. Find these lines

< Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248? >
< OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/ >
< /Feature >

4. Change the AlwaysInstalled to neverInstalled, ex.

< OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/ >

5. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant administrator permission before you be able to modify the file.
