released the RTM (Release to manufacturing) version of office 15. Which is available as free in Microsoft Website. RTM version does not requires the activation. On The 29th January 2013 Microsoft releases the Final version of

You may also receive an error message but your Microsoft Office may have been activated, all you just need to do after installing the product key is to check activation status as explained earlier.
