Error Validating Office 2003 on Vista Ultimate 32-Bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • While Office 2003 installed and activated properly on my copy of Vista Ultimate, if I go to http://www/microsoft.com/genuine to validate it, I get error number 0x80180111:


    Code Snippet

    The Office Genuine Advantage validation tool cannot be run on this computer. In order to successfully run the validation tool, you must be using Microsoft Windows® 2000 or a later version of Windows.


    Since I AM runnint Vista, this does not make sense. Thanks.


    UPDATE: Just for further information, I did a "factory reset" on IE7 (using the instructions posted on microsoft.com) and had the same result.
