If you are attempting to set up an Office 2010 or Office 2013 KMS host by using the slmgr.vbs script, the “/ipk” switch, and a valid Office KMS host product key, the following error will occur:
Error: 0xC004F050 The software licensing service reported that the product key is invalid
Unlike Windows KMS host setup, Office KMS host setup involves installing a separate “KMS host license pack”, entering a related product key, and activating online or via phone.
