Thank you for I'm testing to deploy office 365 to my end user, office is successfully installed in user computer, but when they first run the wor, excel powerpoint or outlook, it have a pop up windows to ask me enter a product code, as we're using Office E3 license, it should no need to use product code, but when I close this windows and it will redirect me to next windows to use my corp email to sign, after sign in, it can activate the office, my question is how can I by pass this step ? every user in my company is already have office E3 license

@Kelvin_KO_Lai_1437 Hello, you can deploy M365 app for enterprise (formerly O365 ProPlus) using different approaches.


As I don't know how you've done it I'm attaching a couple of links.

Plan your enterprise deployment of Microsoft 365 Apps


Configuration options for the Office Deployment Tool


Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML) and Office Customization Tool for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, Office 2019, and Office 2016


You should use both ODT and ADMX to make it smooth for the end-users.


This is a pretty old article I just want to highlight as how you can use them


Good luck!

@ChristianBergstrom thank you for your reply, in my situation, office 365 is already successfully deploy to end user by using Office Deployment Tool, but when user try to launch one of office module, such as word, excel or powerpoint at the first time, it will pop up the following windows to request the product key, if I close this windows, it will pop up another windows to ask me to sign in my email account, after that, it will successful activate, I'm using office E3 license, I want to skip this activate step Capture.PNG


@Kelvin_KO_Lai_1437 OK, I understand. How does you environment look like? Can I see your ODT configuration file? Are any GPO's set?


Can I see this info as well?

cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs" /dstatus


Which model do you use?
