Ah, but it needs to go through Customs if going to Solihull
.Product activation failed
A word of caution.
I installed Office 2010 on my lappy today and although the activation seemed to go OK, the products showed up as.Product activation failed
I did some research on the 'net and it seems to be a well known bug in the setup which Microsoft conveniently forgot to deal with when they finished the beta testing and before releasing to retail.
The solution I found, was to re-attempt activation but by telephone. It's a freephone 24 hour automated number and it did the trick for me.
So if you haven't activated yet, can I suggest you do so by telephone in the first instance so as not to be inconvenienced?

If you open one of the programs and click on 'FILE', the drop down list will include an option to activate if it hasn't been previously activated.
If activation has successfully taken place, there will be no option.
The error which i had was that, although there was no option to activate, the program window contained a caption stating 'Program not activated' or words to that effect.
