Validation error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    Hoping someone can help. After using OfficeXP for over 5 years I discovered that it was not a genuine copy. I purchased / updated to Office 2007. My problem is that the Validation warning logo remains on the task bar, and everytime I fire up Outlook I receive a warning that my version is not valid. I can run updates, which I did after installation, but that little pesky warning keeps popping up.
    Does anyone have a solution please? Many thanks.

  •  Hey Vanish,

    Thank you for visiting the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) program forum. I understand the inconvenience you are currently experiencing. We have seen numerous issues from customers who were provided a Volume License Key (VLK) on their computer that has either been blocked by Microsoft or generated by a fake product key code generator. WGA currently provides checks for these types of product keys and prompts the user to notify them of this situation. More invalid product keys are being identified daily and WGA is constantly refreshing its database with these newly identified product keys and immediately blocks them. 

    Right now, your computer has a Volume License (VL) edition of Office Professional Plus 2007 identified. Below is an extract taken from the MGA Diagnostic results you provided to us:

    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
    Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 - 108 Invalid VLK
    OGA Version: Registered, 1.7.105.35
    Signed By: Microsoft
    Office Diagnostics: 77F760FE-153-80070002_7E90FEE8-175-80070002_025D1FF3-230-1

    As a rule, VL editions 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 is Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.  Vanish if this is a corporate system please ask your systems administrator to logon to the eOpen site (https://eopen.microsoft.com/EN/default.asp) and confirm what your company’s assigned VLK. If this computer is not a corporate system please uninstall Office XP Professional with FrontPage. Next please restart your computer and try to Validate once again.


    You have a couple options available. First you should have been given the option to "Get Genuine" when you failed OGA validation. Here you may purchase an OGA Kit from Microsoft and become genuine. Next you can take the software back where you made the original purchase and either request a genuine copy of Office or return your monies. Next I would recommend for you to file a piracy report by following the directions @
    http://www.microsoft.com/piracy. Please locate "Reporting Piracy" in the upper left corner. 


    Take care,

    Stephen
