This means multiple licenses for the same software version registered under the same Microsoft account on the same day are nearly impossible to tell apart. When more than one license is purchased it can be difficult to choose the correct Microsoft Office installer link because a registered license does not appear under the Microsoft account. Instead, the name of the Office version and the date of the license registration is shown next to the installer. When the wrong installer link is clicked, the software is unable to be registered after being installed.

- Entering the country and language associated with the license
- Signing into an existing Microsoft account to register the license key or creating an account if necessary
