Did you get a key license install that will crap out in 30 days when you just popped in the disk?
Try this to check:
In the installed directory for office:
cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus

That should tell you the version info and expiration.
If it is set to expire and you want to enter a MAK key, you
can go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Pick Awface
Then choose "Change"
Then select "Enter a key"
Seems volume license key versions of Office 2010 don't allow you to enter the volume license key anymore on install.
Nice MS. Saving me time by assuming I am damn pirate out of the gate.

Oh, and yet another thing.... After registration, it seems the ospp.vbs might be deleted?

cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus

Uninstall a key:

Replace the XXXXX with the last five character of the currently installed product key (see current key above).

Install a new key:

Replace the XXXX with your full product key of Office.

Activate with the new key:
