Outlook 2003 validation issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time I re-start my computer and open Outlook 2003 I receive the Genuine Microsoft Software screen.  If I go 'Validate' I get the 'Validation is as easy as 1-2-3'.  From here I have validated my Windows but when I try to validate Office I'm returned to the Genuine Microsoft Software screen.

    I confirm that Outlook is activated.  I've also completed the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Test (MGADT) and this tells my Outlook is validated.

    So why do I keep getting the prompt at start up?

  • Good Morning TBaywatcher,

    Thank you for posting in the OGA Forums. 
    Please run the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Test (MGADT) so that I may analyze the results. By clicking the link below, you will download the MGADT.  Then click the Run button. Then click the Run button again. Then click the Continue button to perform the diagnostic. The Windows tab should show, click the Copy button to paste your report to the clipboard.  Then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum by adding a post in it and pressing Ctrl V (to paste the text). Clicking the OK button will clear the Diagnostic window. Here is the download link:


    Please tell us about the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for your copy of Microsoft Office.

    1. What edition/version of Office do you have? To find your edition/version click Start, Word Options, Resources, About,there you should find the title of your edition.

    ·         Office Basic

    ·         Office Standard

    ·         Office Home and Student

    ·         Office Mobile

    ·         Office Small Business

    ·         Office Professional

    ·         Office Professional Plus

    ·         Office Enterprise

    ·         Office Ultimate

    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4. Please provide the customer scenario you are experiencing.

    5. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for, see this page to reference your COA:

  • Dear Microsoft

    The MGADT report follows.

    As for your question about the edition/version of Office I have your 'to find' instructions are not helpful.  From Start I do not have a "Word Options" choice.  However, I've located the original discs and it tells me the version is "Microsoft Office XP Profesisonal - Version 2002".

    I'm looking forward to a speedy resolution of the issue MS has created with no benefit to myself.

  • Good Morning TBaywatcher,

    Thank you for visiting the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) program forum. Your issue appears to be outside the scope of the OGA program forum. In an attempt to assist I would like to provide the following:

    Open My Computer located on your desktop.

    Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Data\

    NOTE:  The application data file may be hidden. Use the Tools drop down menu do the following: Folder Options->View->Hidden Files and Folders->Show Hidden Files and Folders to show the folder. Please re-hide the files once you have completed all the steps.

    Right click data.dat file, then click Delete.

    The data.dat file is for Office, Not OGA.

    Once the file has been deleted, open an Office application such as MS Word and activate it.

    If product activation was successful try the Office Validation located here:


    The following Knowledge Base (KB) articles can provide more information for Office Activation issues:

    KB903275 - How to troubleshoot problems that you may experience when you try to activate an Office product


    KB326851 -   Activation and registration of a Microsoft product


    KB919895 - How to troubleshoot problems that you may experience when you try to activate a 2007 Office product


    KB828958 - Resources to help you activate a license in Microsoft Office programs


    Should you need further guidance please post your question(s) to the Windows XP General newsgroup forum located here:
