Office 2010 activation fails after SP2 with error 0×80070190

After installing SP2 for Office 2010, i was unable to activate the office installation. Although i entered the correct key, it wouldn’t activate, throwing the error “0×80070190″ office couldn’t be activated.

Turned out that the solution was to start any of the office programs as admin (run as administrator) and then start the activation. Worked flawless then…

    this solution would be more helpful if the problem was only on 1 pc, but doing a fully automated push to several pc’s and still having to touch each one to run activation as admin is not very convenient, is there a way to script this with either sccm2012 or with the OCT?
