A Microsoft Software activation is required for some products. VENDOSOFT has summarised the two most frequently used Microsoft activation methods, MAK and KMS, for you – with convenient links to the Microsoft activation page.
MAK (Multiple Activation Key)
When using a Microsoft MAK activation key, Microsoft client computers are activated online via an activation server hosted by Microsoft.
VENDOSOFT recommends that you use this activation method if you are activating up to 50 client computers.
Microsoft provides detailed information about MAK activation on its website.
KMS (Key Management Service)
Microsoft Software activation via the KMS activation service is a server/client model, in which you must install and activate a KMS host activation key on a KMS host computer. This will set up a local activation service in the environment. Microsoft client computers establish a connection with the local KMS host for the activation.
VENDOSOFT recommends that you use this activation method if you are activating 50 or more client computers.
Microsoft provides detailed information about KMS activation on its website.

The volume license versions of Office 2016 for Mac are automatically activated during installation. There are no additional steps required for you as an administrator. Users will not see an activation prompt when they open Office 2016 for Mac for the first time.
