Microsoft Office 2013 activation error code 0xC004F074 - fix.

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Sun 22 Mar 2015, 06:03

Hello all,


A number of users reported issues regarding the crack that is included in our Office 2013 release. Note that this is only a preliminary finding, and that we may come up with more solutions over time !

For now, I installed Office 2013 on my main machine. The installation of the AutoKMS server was successful:






However, the next step, namely using the "Activate"-button on the right, was not working for me. Whenever I did that, I got this here:






I got this "error code 0x0C004F074". Of course, you may (or may not ?) get a similar error code. In the end though, you are unable to activate office 2013. Even if you re-arm after that.

What I did in the following was partly based on some good old guesswork: I had reason to believe that my anti-virus program (avast Internet Security) was messing with the activation process. Although I have long set all the exclusion locations on my machine, and some of the shields of avast were de-activated. But for some reason it still blocked the activation.

I decided to temporarily shut down avast completely, and I re-armed. Then I tried the activation again..and it worked ! Afterwards I even turned avast on again, re-armed and re-activated, just to see what happens. But then, even with avast ON, I was now able to activate Office 2013 successfully. See this here:






I think that parts of the anti-virus program (the firewall ?) are blocking the "communication" between this actual crack file and the KMS server. So by turning off avast completely (temporarily) I managed to activate it. I think it is essential that the first time activation is successful. 

And I hope that this small experience here will benefit at least some of you too. Good luck, and we will keep you posted about further developments. Smile
