Changing the license key in MS office

Sometimes it is necessary to change the license key in MS Office. For example, I recently installed Office on a Terminal Server and because you need a VL Key Office complained about not having the right key, refused to start but of course didn’t give me the option to change it.
How to force Office to ask for a new key is explained here:
Basically you need to delete the registry keys DigitalProductID  and ProductID
Which can be found under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration
