Windows recognized as genuine, Office 2003 XP isn't, although they both should be! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Although my software is genuine (I bought it together with my Dell computer), I keep getting the message that it is not and that in now five days, my software will be flagged as not genuine everytime I reboot my computer and open a Word document.
    Validating my Windows with the Genuine Microsoft Software website (http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/default.aspx?displaylang=en) results in a "thank you for using genuine software". Validating my Office however gives me the following message:

    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.

     

    As mentioned above, I bought the software toghether with my computer in October 2005.


    Can you help me?
    Thanks!

  • Hello Tejanita,

    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

    Your installation of Office Professional 2003 on your Dell Inspiron 6000 is a nongenuine installation.  It is a volume licensing installation that was done with a Blocked Volume Licensing Key.  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.

    Normally, legitimate users of Volume Licensing editions of Office are associated with larger business, educational, or governmental organizations.  If that's you, please contact your organization's IT support staff for further assistance.

    If your use of this installation of Office Professional 2003 is not associated with a larger business, educational, or governmental organization, and you purchased the installed copy of Office Professional 2003 thinking that it was a retail license to be sold to individual consumers, it is likely that you are a victim of software piracy or counterfeiting.  As an individual consumer, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing (VL) materials such as the VL installation disc and you certainly should not have received a Blocked VLK for Office Professional 2003.  You should have been sold Genuine retail licensed 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 think that you qualify for the Genuine Office Offer, apply for the Offer thru the Learn More Online link that the OGA Notifier is displaying.

    Your Dell did NOT ship from Dell with this particular installation of Office.  Dell does not sell Volume Licensing installations of Office to individual consumers.  It is very possible that the computer did ship from Dell with a Trial installation of a different edition of Office.  Also, if you paid the additional upcharge to Dell for Office, they would have installed an OEM license for the edition of Office you paid extra for.

    One other possibility 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 installations which are nongenuine.  This could have happened if you took your computer to a repair shop and they reinstalled Windows and/or some or all of your programs.  You Get Genuine once again by uninstalling the current nongenuine installations 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, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.
