      I think a LOT of people who ended up here were looking to see whether their retail copy was activated.
      That is accomplished by opening Word, clicking on the “File” tab, then on “Help”
      It will say at the top right “Product Activated”.

      Also, is it just me, or are you getting an error msg when you type the path in your instructions (regular or Admin command prompt) that “The system cannot find the path specified.”?

    Thank you for the trick, that’s good to know you have to be an IT to check if a product is valid. That will create employment for licences specialists.

          try running command prompt in elevated mode

          Press the Win keyboard key or click Start button.
          Type cmd into the Start Search textbox.
          Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter keyboard shortcut. Ctrl-Shift-Enter is the general keyboard shortcut that triggers elevation to “Run as Administrator”.
          Press Alt+C or press Continue to confirm the UAC elevation warning prompt.

          then try again

    these instructions work until I ran cscript pspp.vbs/ dstatus. I received a cscript error: Execution of the Windows Script Host failed. (Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.)
    .
    I have 3GB memory and i am running nothing else. 320Gb HD.
    .
    Any suggestion? Thanks
