    Should work fine. If it doesn’t then try using the ospp file instead. Search google for specific instructions because I’m not on my primary machine at the moment.

    You can also do it via the ospp.vbs script in the office 2010 install folder. This was infact the only way to remove the old key. I got a bad key first round. :(
