Removing Activation from Office 2003

Recommended Posts

I have a silent install of Office 2003 MVL and as a final touch I would like to remove the Product Activation button on the toolbar. Yes, I have looked through the ORK and TechNet and found no infomation on how to do this. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to do this.

Thanks

Yes, we have a Microsoft Volume License for the product. If this needs to be kept secret for some reason, please email me. The reason for removing the button for activation is because it doesn't do anything but tell the user that their product is already activated which may cause calls to the Helpdesk. Just want it to be right.

Well... in that case I'm sorry. I was just trying to give ya heads up... as far as the question I honestly don't know answer man. :} However, I'm quite sure that our software guru's here at MSFN will be able to help you!

Ive just figured out away for you.

If you use the "Re-arrange Commands" option under Tools/Customize.

You can go to the Help menu or any other menu and remove or add menu items. If you remove this Activate product it saves changes in Normal.dot I guess you can then Unattend Normal.dot to copy to the users

Document and Settings\USER\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dot

Hope this helps
