  • Hello vista17,

      Please go to
    http://microsoft.com/genuine/diag and click the Start Diagnostic button. The page will check and see if your system is setup to Validate correctly. If the page finds any problems it will either be able to correct it automaticly or if it can't, it will provide steps on how to resolve the issue manually.

      Once you have passed the Diag successfully, click the 'Validate Office' button. If you Validate successfully, return to the download area and you should be able to download the template without issue.

      If you still have issues, download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool at this link
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Continue" click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response message in this thread.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
