How do I make an Microsoft OfficeXP CD that automatically fills in the Product ID (i.e. CD Key)?

  1. Copy the contents of your Office XP CD to a folder on your Hard Drive
  2. In the FILES\SETUP directory will be a SETUP.INI file, edit this file
  3. Find the [OPTIONS] section, add a line PIDKEY=(your product key no dashes)
  4. Now burn the contents onto a blank CD. It will now install without the need for you to insert the product key.
