Microsoft has a distinct activation process that needs to be dealt with when the platform that you are working on is either of Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP or even Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2003. You can get the appropriate numbers by accessing the Product Activation feature in either of these platforms.


The Production Activation Wizard starts in a different way in each of these products and you can have a step by step guide with the activation of your product. The first method that takes place is online activation and if that fails, you get to have the Activate by Telephone method within the wizard. On this selection, you will be asked to place in your country and region of your residence and the wizard is going to get you all the numbers that would be available for the online activation support around your area.

While activating your product over the phone, you need to make sure that you have the installation ID with you when you dial the number. This installation ID is generated when you choose to activate through the online telephone system.

In case you are not able to activate your product through the automated interactive voice response system, you will have the option to connect to Microsoft Product Activation Customer Services Representative. The representative is going to ask you about a couple of details including the Installation ID for processing. You would be asked to give the representative further details about the product that you are using as well as license/certificate of authenticity that is all available on the OEM Computer. You can have all these details on the medium through which you have got the product.
