At least some Office 365 subscribers who have attempted to use Word, Outlook, and other apps in the Microsoft Office suite have been prompted to reactivate their license, but the process fails to complete.

Affected users have encountered various errors while Office apps hang on “activating” or “looking for licenses,” which eventually leads to a window that says “no license found,” with seemingly no workaround.

The issue appears to be affecting not only individual users, but businesses and universities and with enterprise licenses.

We’ve reached out to Microsoft for comment and will update this article as soon as we hear anything back.
