    You need to search for extend.dat file before that set enable the hidden files.

    Follow the steps below:
    1.Go to My computer then click on Tools
    2.Select Folder options
    3.Tap on View tab
    4.Check Show hidden files and folders on it
    5.Click on Apply and then OK
    You can also re-install Office to avoid this problem where your license wont be lost.
