Hackers have put together a crack which involves using files from an activated version of Office 2010 Beta in order to bypass the activation process of Office 2010 RC. Interestingly crack, the illegal bypass method works by simply swapping two files (tokens.dat and pkeyconfig-office.xrm-ms) which sounds quite easy to do.
Another method to bypass Office 2010 RC activation involves running one script named “ActivateOffice2010beta.7z” made by one of hacker SoLoR and executing series of complicated steps.

The Microsoft Office 2010 activation crack is likely able to crack and activate Office 2010 RTM build. As the method has been revealed, it’s likely that Microsoft will fix the loophole before releasing the final RTM version of Office 2010. But who knows hackers may be getting ready with some other crack or activation bypass method for Office 2010.
