Office 2003 professional - blocked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am trying to download from office online but it says that:

    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003:
    Validation Failed

    The product key used to install Office has been blocked by Microsoft.

    [0x80180114]

    This happened about 6 months ago too, when i called microsoft they were extremely unhelpful and told me that basically if i wanted help i would have to pay.  It sorted its self out, some how, but i had to reinstall it last week and now i have problems.

    My version of oiffice is genuine, my organisation bought it with my computer.  Any help, i would be extremely grateful.  Thanks Alot

  • Claire,

     

    Thank you for posting your diagnostic information and posting on the thread. Diagnostic results help our team find resolutions. I have extracted a portion of your diagnostic results to review with you.

    I am sorry to hear about the problem your currently experiencing. I can see right away what the issue is with Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 and why it is not passing validation.  Unfortunately, the product key used to install the Office is a Volume License Key (VLK) that has been blocked per the request of the legal VLK holder.  As a rule, VL editions of either an Operating System and/or Office should not be sold to individual consumers. Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers. Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP and version of MS Office are Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.

    This is why you were seeing the "Software Counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of Office is an unauthorized installation. In any case, please uninstall the non-genuine installation of the operating system to alleviate any complications which may arise from the non-genuine status of your system. As a customer there are options available to you for a resolution. First, if this comes as a total surprise, please go back to where you purchased the software and let them know it is a counterfeit copy and demand they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy which was originally paid for. Print a copy of the diagnostic report so you may show them proof for the 114 Blocked VLK statuses. Second, if you purchased this copy of XP from a reseller or retailer, you are a victim and should report this piracy to Microsoft. Microsoft legal will follow up on all leads provided. Reporting piracy to Microsoft will help alleviate others in becoming victims such as yourself. You may be eligible for a complimentary replacement copy if you were sold a high quality counterfeit copy of Office.  For details on the ways to “Get Genuine”, see the web page that outlined your validation failure details or http://www.microsoft.com/genuine.  It will provide all of the possible steps which you can take.

     

    The key installed on this computer was not assigned by Microsoft. The key is counterfeit and was most likely generated by a non-sanctioned key generator. The product key found on your computer has been detected on multiple computers. Product keys are only allowed to be used on one computer unless otherwise specified in the end user licensing agreement.

    Counterfeiters have been known to sell computers with Windows installed, all using the same product key, to unsuspecting consumers. Again, you may be eligible for a complimentary replacement copy if you were sold a high quality counterfeit copy of Office. Please review and follow the guidance @ http://www.microsoft.com/genuine on how to become genuine.
    I am sorry to hear about your situation. Please don't hesitate re-posting if you need further assistance.

    Thanks

    The problem appears to be lying with MS Office. It is a blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK).
