I've been doing this for WIN, and WIN programs since Windows for Workgroups (OMG does that mean 20+ years). Everything I use is cracked. I've been doing this since the golden age of Demonoid.
I HATE WIN 10!!!

I wanted to understand about the activation request window. I saw an older post from DVDR_Dog that says even though the activation screen pops up it is still activated and everything works. Well I totally get that. I've been running an older cracked version of Office on another laptop till something broke the crack. It pops up every time I open excel or word ... Just hit close and go on. I just haven't taken the time to fix it.

However.... Now... I've installed Office 2016 Pro with the KMSAuto. I don't even run Virus and security stuff on my Pre-WIN10 machines. But I disabled all the VP stuff I could find on this new clean WIN10 machine and after installing 2016 with the activator. Before opening excel, The KMS information says:
=== Your system is activated . ===
= Products Status: Office 2010, Office 2013/2016

I open excel and I get the activation screen. I go back and run KMS, it says
=== Your system is activated . ===
= Products Status: Office 2010, Office 2013/2016

I go back to excel and close the activation screen (without entering in email or phone number). Open a blank workbook and it says at the top NOT ACTIVATED.
I go back and run KMS and it says
Products Status: Office 2010, Office 2013/2016
== Office 16, Office16ProPlusR_Grace edition
Product Description: Office 16, RETAIL(Grace) channel
Partial Product Key: BTDRB
License Status: Out-of-Box (OOB) Grace
Reason: 0x4004f00c

I've been beating around this for 2 days not going anywhere. If it was Virus Protection related, I wouldn't have been able to run KMS. It feels like its registry related. There is something that is overriding THUMPER's wonderful KMS. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
