Can’t activate Office 2013 – Error 0x80070005

January 29th, 2015 admin

This seems like a fundamental problem with activating office which I’ve seen a couple of times.

On a clean install of Windows 7, shortly followed by an installation of Office 2013 Home and Student, I get an error 0x80070005 when trying to activate?

Simple fix though!

Start Word/Excel etc by right clicking on the icon in the start menu and selecting “Run as Administrator”.

Office should then activate properly without errors.
