An internet connection is required to ensure that your subscription for Microsoft Office is not interrupted

I have a customer that has a new wave 15 Office365 tenant and click to run is not compatible with Windows XP. Like most corporate customers , my customer had a proxy.

So I ran the Office365 readiness assessment tool which you can download HERE 

The results of the test stated that Office365 ports could not be contacted.

The reason for this is because Office365 communicates to the service via networkservice.

Lets say my proxy was then run the following command and Office will activate fine.

bitsadmin /util /setieproxy networkservice MANUAL_PROXY “”

If you need bitsadmin for xp you can download it HERE .
