Hi, I have been trying to install a Microsoft Office to my computer.
However, the window returns an error message when I entered a product key.
I am sure I entered the correct product key, but I don’t know what happened.
Could you kindly help?
The unattend answer file contains an invalid product key. Either remove the invalid key or provide a valid product key in the unattend answer file to proceed with windows installation.
Error in installing Microsoft Office
Yes, It's your operating system problem. This issue occurs because the installation media contains an unattended setup file with an embedded product key. You may need to disconnect your floppy disk. Interrupt installation by shutting down Windows virtual machine.
Open the configuration of your virtual machine by right – clicking on the virtual machine icon in the Virtual Machines list > click on Configure. Click the Hardware tab and select Floppy Disk. Disconnect the floppy disk by clearing the Connected option, and click OK to save your settings. Then Floppy Disk is disconnected, restart your virtual machine and new installation will not create any problem.
Or, You may configure Windows to start in a clean boot. If you want to know details go to Microsoft's official support page about configuration. Or, Easy way is Install a new and fresh windows to your computer.
Hope it will solve your problem.
