Government purchased Office Professional Edition 2003 not validating RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased my edition of Office Professional Edition 2003 through a US Government program last year and now it won't validate, why not? What do I do since it's not an office system administrator issue?  Below are the two messages I received when running the diagnostic software.

    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003

    Problem: The product key used to install Office has been identified by Microsoft as a key that was issued to a large, corporate customer. This key is reserved for the exclusive use of this customer, and cannot be used to install other copies of Microsoft Office.

    Solution: If your computer belongs to a large organization and you believe you are receiving this message in error, talk to your system administrator.

    If your computer does not belong to a large organization, you may be a victim of software counterfeiting. In that case, your best options to acquire genuine Microsoft Office are outlined on this Office Genuine Advantage web page. You can also contact the business where you purchased Office, purchased your computer with Office pre-installed, or had your computer serviced. Ask for their help to ensure that the copy of Office you purchased or received with the purchase of a new computer is genuine.

  • Hello e-flynn,

    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
    OGA Version: Registered, 2.0.48.0
    Signed By: Microsoft
    Office Diagnostics: 77F760FE-153-80070002_7E90FEE8-175-80070002_77F760FE-153-80070002_7E90FEE8-175-80070002_025D1FF3-230-1

    The report says you have a Blocked VLK, which means that (a) your Dell Latitude D800 laptop computer has a Volume Licensing edition of Office Professional Edition 2003 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.

    As noted in the text you pasted from the web page, if your use of this Volume Licensing edition of Office Professional Edition 2003 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.

    If you are an individual consumer, which it sounds like you are, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing materials such as a VL disc, and you certainly should not have received a Blocked Product Key.

    A common explanation for the current situation 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, or asked a friend or relative to help you with a computer problem, and they reinstalled Windows and/or some or all of your programs, using one of their own discs with the nongenuine software.  If this is the situation, you can 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, or on a yellow-orange product key sticker in your retail package, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.

    If you purchased the computer used/second-hand/refurbed/etc, then the previous owner or the seller may have installed the nongenuine Office.

    If the above circumstances do not apply, and you personally purchased and installed the current installation of Office that is now on the computer, then the only other explanation is that you were sold counterfeit software.  If so, your first course of action is to confront your seller with this information and demand a full refund.

    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 would like to participate in the Office Genuine Offer, please click the Learn More Online link being displayed on your screen by the OGA Notifier utility.
