Problems after installing Office genuine Advantage Notifications (KB949810) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I wonder if someone could help me with the following problem:-

    - I'm running a licensed, activated & validated version of Office XP Small Business 2002.

    - Windows Update recently installed "Office Genuine Advantage Notifications (KB949810)"

    - Now, when I first start an office app, I'm told that Office isn't validated, and that it cannot be validated because it isn't yet activated. But if I go to Help->Activate Product it says "this product has already been activated" (which is what I'd expect, having activated it years ago).

    The log output is as follows:-

  • Hello rdtrdt,

    When a long-activated installation of Office XP or Office 2003 suddenly cannot make up its mind whether it is activated or not, chances are that the Office license file has been damaged or corrupted.

    Please troubleshoot by working your way thru the Methods in this MS KB article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903275

    Most people tell us that running the MS FixIt in Method 2 takes care of the problem.

  • Hello Dan,

    I deleted data.dat in Microsoft\Office\Data, ran Word, which prompted me to Activate Office, and I then completed completed successfully. Looks like problem solved.

    Many Thanks.

  • Hello rdtrdt,

    You're welcome!

    By the way, did you happen to run any disk cleanup or registry cleanup software just prior to experiencing this issue with Office?  It's suspected that overly-aggressive cleanup software may be at the root of this issue.

  • Hello  Dan,

    I didn't run any disk or registry cleanup prior to the issue I had. The only thing different to usual was that I'd very recently switched to Security Essentials (from Avast!) and had it do a full disk scan, but this didn't find any problems (or remove anything), so probably not related.
