But what if you want to extend the trial period for another 30 days? Is there a way to do that without paying anything? The answer is yes. There is a hidden command in Office 2010 that allows you to reset the activation timer and get another 30 days of free usage. This command is called OSPPREARM and it is located in your Windows drive.

Type the following command and press Enter: %SystemDrive%:\\Windows\\System32\\OSPPRUN.exe Where %SystemDrive% is normally C: or other drive letter that Windows is installed on.
A new prompt will come out. Type the following commands one by one, each followed by Enter: > Initialize > Open > GetInstalledSkuIds The last command will return an application ID number that represents AppID for Office 2010. For example: 0. 128a057a-7e95-4063-b296-c54c5f3d3f3a OK.
Type the following command and press Enter: > GetInstalledAppIds 128a057a-7e95-4063-b296-c54c5f3d3f3a Replace the number with the AppID for Office 2010 that you got from the previous step.
