Activation of Office on the demo VMs

So this is probably a good sign that the VMs that we ship are used a lot. It seems if you try to register Office on the demo VMs it might start telling you that it has been activated too many times.

So as a partner you will have access to a NFR copy of Office or if you have an MSDN subscription you can get a product key/Id from there to use.

If you are having trouble finding one then get a 60day Eval key from the Office website

Until you can find one that you have more permanent usage of.

8/25 Just adding and addendum as I got a email from Carl. This link maybe useful for some of you have have the office activation issue and you want to use your MSDN license.
