Office activation with a proxyserver
I'm trying to activate Office 2010 by running the OSPP.VBS script. I'm using the following command : cscript OSPP.VBS /act in the correct directory. This works fine but when I'm trying to run the same script as a postinstallation task, the following error occurs : 0x80072EE2 a timeout error.
The computers are all in a domain and they're accesing the internet over a proxyserver. We've added several exceptions in the proxyserver but it still doesn't work. Is there any of you guys who knows an answer?

How is your proxy settings being applied? Through GPO or post-install taks? Are you sure they have the proxy configuration applied when they're attempting to communicate? You may need to setup the proxy first, then try to activate.
