  1. Hi
    I haven’t rearmed the office even for a single time but still getting the “Error: 0xc004d307 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run ‘slui.exe 0x2a 0xc004d307’”

  2. How can we get past this error about activation? We use a virtual environment so rebuilding our SOE every 6 months is not feasible.
