Office 2003 validation says not genuine even though I have the original OEM software discs & Product Key with me. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have recently received a validation notice that says my copy of Office 2003 is not genuine.  I have the original OEM Software for SBE 2003 with me with the Certificate of Authenticity and product key.   I bought the computer from the company I used to work for in 2007 who had a Microsoft Partner as the service contractor and administrator.  The service contractor company has now been taken over by another company so not really possible to go back to the original provider.  I have used the computer and software since it was first pruchased in the UK in 2004.

    Should I reinstall the Office software again in case it has been reloaded incorrectly when there were problems solved by the original administrator in 2004? Or do you have any other solutions?

    Details of the diagnostic report is as follows:

  • Hello broomers,

    Your situation with your Samsung computer is not all that uncommon with people who have purchased computers from large employers or other larger organizations that periodically refresh their computer fleet.

    The mistake that was made was that before turning over the computer to you, the company did not remove the Volume Licensing software that they installed on the computer.  In the case of your Samsung, the installed Windows XP Pro, Office Professional 2003, and Office InfoPath 2003 are all Volume Licensing installations.

    In the case of the Windows XP Pro installation, the Volume Licensing Product Key that was used to do the installation is still a valid product key covered by a current Volume Licensing Agreement, so the XP Pro installation on your computer is reporting as Genuine.  However, since the computer is no longer owned by the company that has the Volume License Agreement, use of the Volume License for XP Pro outside of the company's agreement is a Nongenuine use and is not permitted.  Furthermore, individual installations of Volume Licenses on computers cannot be separately sold with the computer.

    This should be an easily correctable issue, however.  Assuming the Samsung computer has a Certificate of Authenticity for Windows XP Professional affixed to the computer (on the bottom if a laptop), you can use the Product Key updater to change the license on the computer from a Volume License to the correct OEM license.  You can find the PK Updater utility at this link:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668

    The situation with Office and InfoPath is not so easy, however.  The Office installation is reporting as Nongenuine, and while InfoPath is reporting as Genuine, it is much the same situation as above for Windows--it's someone else's Volume License that you should not be using.

    Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:

    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 114 Blocked VLK 2
    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 - 114 Blocked VLK 2
    Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 - 100 Genuine
    OGA Version: Registered,
    Signed By: Microsoft
    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1

    The current Volume Licensing installation of Office Professional 2003 was done with a blocked Volume Licensing Key.  A key is blocked by Microsoft if the Key has been reported as lost, stolen, or compromised to the internet, or if the Volume Licensing Agreement that covers that key has expired or been terminated.

    In order to get you Office installation Genuine, you will need to uninstall the current volume licensing installation of Office and then install a Genuine license for the Office suite of your choice.  The same applies to InfoPath, as its use outside of the applicable Volume Licensing Agreement is a nongenuine use of the product.
