Windows did not pass genuine Windows validation.

    Question

  • Hi,
    Windows did not pass geniune Windows validation but when I went through internet for upgrades, all the required upgrades are being updated to my PC. I tried the following
    C:\Windows\system32>net start slsvc
    The service name is invalid

    I found the reason for this.  Slsvc.exe is missing from my services folder. This is not available in the registry folder also. 
    How to find Slsvc.exe to get my Windows XP validated?

    Regards

  • Hello narenp,

    Right now, your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a Invalid Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  The VLK used on your nongenuine installation of XP Pro was invalidated because it was made with a pirating program called a Key generator and was never a Genuine product key issued by Microsoft.

    Also note that the installed license for XP Pro is a Volume License.  As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Additionally, VL editions are Upgrade licenses ONLY, and therfore cannot be used as the primary or base license for a computer.

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

    The next step in the process is to look on the computer, or with the materials you received with the computer, or with your retail purchase of Windows, to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticty (CoA).  If you have one, tell us about the CoA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows is it for, XP Home, XP Pro, or XP Media Center, or some other version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key that may be printed on your CoA.

    Not sure what to look for?  Click here:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

    If there is a CoA, that means the computer is almost certainly still licensed to run the version and edition of Windows described on the CoA.

    If the CoA says that it is for XP Professional, the first thing to try is running the Product Key Updater utility:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668

    If the CoA is for any version or edition of Windows other than XP Professional, then your only available solution is to backup and offload your data, then use the Recovery Solution provided with the computer to put back the original factory installation of Windows (as described on the CoA) that came with the computer.  The recovery solution may be one or more Recovery discs and/or Operating System (OS) Reinstallation discs, a hidden recovery partition, or both.  If you have to run the recovery, please visit the model-specific support page at the support pages of the computer's manufacturer to learn more about how to do that procedure.

    If there is no CoA either with the materials you received with the computer or on the computer itself, then that means the computer was never licensed to run Windows.  If the computer seller just loaded Windows onto the computer but never gave you a genuine hologrammed CD nor a CoA with a Product Key, then the seller engaged in a form of piracy known as "hard disk loading."  If the seller charged you for a Windows license, they never delivered it to you, so contact them and demand the genuine software you paid for, or a refund for the price they charged you.

    If there is no CoA, you will need to acquire a genuine license for Windows to continue to use Windows on the computer.  You can purchase genuine Windows from a local or trusted internet retailer, or purchase a discounted WGA Kit from Microsoft.

    Also, please note that your installation of Office XP Professional with FrontPage has a major problem as well.

    Here is the snippet of your mgadiag report that pertains to Office:

    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 114 Blocked VLK 2
    Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage - 114 Blocked VLK 2
    OGA Version: N/A, 0x80070002
    Signed By: N/A, hr = 0x80070002
    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1


    Regarding Office, the report says you have a Blocked VLK, which means that (a) your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of Office XP Professional w/Front Page installed, and that (b) a Blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) was used to install it.  A "blocked" VLK is one that was issued by Microsoft to a business, educational institution, or governmental agency for their exclusive use in accordance with a Volume Licensing Agreement.  (Note that such use does NOT allow the resale of such VLKs.)  However, because the VLK may have been reported lost, stolen, or compromised to the internet by the original keyholder, or because the Volume Licensing Agreement has expired, Microsoft has blocked the VLK from further use.

    If you are an individual consumer, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing (VL) materials such as a VL CD, and you certainly should not have received a Blocked Product Key.  You should have been sold Genuine retail licensed software.

    Your first course of action is to confront your seller with this information and demand either a full refund or to receive the genuine software you paid for.

    If the seller refuses to help, please file a piracy report at www.microsoft.com/piracy.  Also, depending upon whether you received "high quality" counterfeit materials, you may qualify for the Office Complimentary Offer or for the Office Genuine Advantage discounted offer.  Please see the FAQ here:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx?displaylang=en#ID0EKNAC  If you think that you qualify for the Genuine Office Offer, apply for the Offer thru the Learn More Online link that the OGA Notifier is displaying.

    If your use of this Volume Licensing edition of Office XP Professional w/Front Page is in association with an organization that has a Volume Licensing Agreement, then please contact the IT support staff of the organization for further assistance.

    One other possibility is that at one time your computer did have a Genuine installation of Office installed, but for some reason it was replaced with the current installation which is nongenuine.  This could have happened if you took your computer to a repair shop and they reinstalled Windows and/or some or all of your programs.  You Get Genuine once again by uninstalling the current nongenuine installation of Office and using your Genuine Microsoft hologrammed Office installation CDs, along with the genuine Product Key found on your Office Edition's Certificate of Authenticity, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.
