    Hi All,

    On my open license download page, I found an entry
    for "Office Standard 2010 Key Management Service Host".
    Anyone know what this is?

    Many thanks,
    -T

    KMS is Key Management Service. In the 2007 Microsoft Office system and
    previous versions of Microsoft Office, you had to enter a product key when
    you deployed Office. If you use Key Management Service (KMS), you do not have
    to do this for Office 2010, because all volume license editions of Office
    2010 have a KMS client key preinstalled.
    Only one key must be installed and activated on the Office 2010 KMS host to
    activate all volume license editions of Office 2010 KMS clients. If the
    Office 2010 KMS host is installed and configured, KMS activation occurs
    transparently to the user when an Office 2010 client first installs.
