Jumping through the hoops for Office 2016 activation tonight.
Hit a new low with Microsoft. Forced account creation for the download.
Verify the account email.
Continue to attempt the download by logging in yet again, and:
Server Error 401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
You have got to be kidding me. Should have purchased Office 364.78256 instead.
Oh, and bonus, after I uncheck the dont send me crap in the email, I get this upon logging in after re-etering the key again: - P.S. you are scum Microsoft:
