Office Pro XP fails validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't know how many years ago I installed this genuine licensed copy of Office Pro but now the "Advantage Tool" has decided it fails validation.  This is part of the reason I'm waiting at least a year before installing Vista and am evaluating StarOffice.

    I can't find the post again where Stephan MS asked for this, but here it is:

  • Herb,

    Thank you for providing results from the Diagnostic report. I understand the inconvenience you are currently experiencing and would like to provide available options we have for assisting customers to address issues they are currently experiencing. Attached below is a Knowledge Base (KB) article regarding your problem. This article describes how to troubleshoot problems that you may experience when trying to activate a Microsoft Office product.

    When you activate an Office retail license, you enable full product functionality. Additionally, you are no longer prompted to activate the retail license every time that you start the Office product.

     When you try to start or activate an Office product, you may experience symptoms that indicate one of the following:
    • You have not successfully activated the Office product.
    • You must reactivate the Office product.
    • There may be part of a previous Office installation in the registry or in the Office folders.

    Here is another KB article describing problems you may encounter and offers advice on preventing different versions of Office from conflicting with each other. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290576/en-us

     Please re-post here should this not resolve your problems. Have a great day!
