Hello,

I've installed and activated Win7 x64 bits as well as Office 2013 x64bits, everything works like a charm 
I read somewhere activation problems when REinstalling Win7. Also, I read somewhere in this forum that is it possible to backup the product key (file/reg).
Anyone can let me know what file/reg to backup in order to restore in case the win7 activation?

Regards

Thanks for the links Andre. Just out of curiosity, could someone else using Opera please test that guys website download pages ... www.joshcellsoftwares.com

Using Opera v11 I noticed that the download pages there cause a hard lock up on Opera on WinXP. Tried it four times, and each time Opera needed to be killed with ProcExp. Firefox showed no problems.

Just wondering if it is not something local to me. Could be some elaborate javascripts affecting others or maybe he is pulling in some ads that I blocked.

... Let him who hath understanding reckon the Number Of The Beast ...

Opera v. 12.15 build 1748 on XP SP3 does not lock up, but doesn't work either... I get:

TNX myselfidem ;)
That what I was looking for.

BTW, I find 2 token.dat files:
C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform\tokens.dat (6964 KB), this is the concerned file
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\tokens.dat (3361 KB). What it used for? Office 2013?

Regards
