Activation of Project Spark is still not possible as a "completely offline" process. To activate the game you basically still need someone who bought the game before it was pulled off Microsoft Store to help you generate a local license on your PC (the "license" itself is a pretty small XML-based file, stored into a subfolder in "User/AppData/Packages"....its contents, however, seems to be hardware-related, so just copying it from another computer won't work ), plus an "always online" microsoft account to log in on the windows PC you want to play on.
Be advised that, even if you correctly activated the game post-sunset with the above and the help of a friend, in any case, if you switched to a classic "offline" windows account, even with a local license, you won't be able to use it to play online , so if you really want to do so, you will be stuck with playing it offline (and this is where SparkShare definitely kicks in, of course ); to play offline with an "offline" windows account, of course, you will also have to manually block all outgoing network connections from Project Spark, otherwise you will be locked out because "you need to log in with the account you bought the game with...".
Ok, I know this feels as complicated to read as it was for me to write... Point is, there's still work to do.
