What happens if Office 365 reports Unlicensed product messages?

If you are trying to renew your Office 365, but it’s failing, and a pop-up is appearing saying that the subscription hasn’t been completed, in such cases, the Office 365 shows an unlicensed product. This also causes disabling of several functions of the Office. It occurs either due to the expiration of the Office program or due to any hindrance in its activation.

The reason behind Office 365 unlicensed

The issue surfaces due to two common reasons;

  • Either an integral part of SPP gets lost from the device.
  • Or sometimes the issue occurs when your Office 365 isn’t licensed [expired license issue].
