How to extend Microsoft Word 2010 trial period?

Microsoft allows you to test drive Office 2010 free for 30 days; after that, you have to get a license and activate. Many didn't know that it is possible to increase the trial period by another 30 days, up to 5 times for a total of 180 days.

To extend, open command prompt and go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform and run OSPPREARM.exe. If you installed the 32-bit edition of Office on a 64-bit OS, replace Program Files with Program Files (x86).
