From COEHELP

Jump to: navigation, search

Follow the instructions below to authorize use of Microsoft Office products on any COE computer, including the VLAB, for a period of 30 days. The steps below create a token file in your COE home directory in the Win10Files folder; please don't delete them!

  1. Launch an Office program (Word, Excel, etc.) from the Start Menu
  2. When you click the colored Sign In button, you'll be prompted for an email address; use (your myNortheastern username)@northeastern.edu
  3. In the Northeastern University pop-up window, you'll be prompted for credentials, leave the username as it is, and add your myNortheastern password to the password field.
  4. You will get a 2-Factor authentication prompt (usually a push notification to your cell phone); agree to the 2FA prompt.
  5. If you are successful, you'll get a pop-up window titled "Under your control"; you can close this, then start using your software.

After 30 days, you'll need to repeat these steps to update your token.
