    Sorry for my bad english, I speak french.
    Very clear,I have rarely seen a tutorial like this.
    Problem: I have just a serial but not a MAK key. Something to do or no issue?

      Hi Charpe

      Thanks for your comment. If you have a general retail key for Office 2010, this won’t stop you from creating the ThinApp but I imagine you would have problems activating this more than once. MAK keys are the most suitable option as they allow the application to be reactivated if the ThinApp user data files are deleted or moved to a different PC.

      Hope this helps, and thanks for reading.
