MSOffice 2007’s Anti-piracy approach

In the new MSOffice 2007 microsoft is added a feature called Reduced Functionality Mode to stop piracy. This reduced Functionality mode is triggered whenever Office 2007 fails activation. In reduced-functionality mode, programs function similarly to viewers. When a program runs in reduced-functionality mode, many commands are unavailable or dimmed. Therefore, you cannot access those functionalities. Some of the limitations of reduced-functionality mode include the following:

  • You cannot create new documents.
  • You can view existing documents. However, you cannot edit them.
  • You can print documents. However, you cannot save them.
