Windows Office Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased my computer over 3 years ago from Lenovo with the Microsoft Office 2003 programs installed.  It was a Vista Professional Operating system with XP compatibility (also installed).  In August I had the local repair shop reformat my computer and update to Windows 7.  The operationg system seems to be legit--it updates regularly. (I sure paid for it!)  However, this week my solution center recommended I update Office Word (there is a whole support packet that I no longer have) as it had closed unexpectedly twice.  I tried to update and recieved a message saying Office is not genuine.

    Is this the repair shop's fault?  If so, shouldn't it have become apparent earlier?  Will they do anything about it?

    Or is it that I can't use my original 2003 Office programs for Windows 7?  Or did the validation program make a mistake?

    I have a validation sticker on my laptop, but I think it is for the Vista operating system.  The code is 25 characters long.  Is the code for the operatating system the same for Office?  If I ever had any box, it's most likely long gone. 

    How do I get validated?  The following is the diagnostic.

    Thanks for your help!

    Unfortunately, the installed copy of Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 is a pirated, non-genuine Volume License version.  You will need to uninstall it, then purchase a genuine edition of Microsoft Office.  You can purchase genuine Microsoft Office software from the  Microsoft Store.

    P.S.  The product key affixed to your computer is for the Windows operating system only and not for Microsoft Office.

  • Hello may ann,

    As Carey posted, the currently installed Office 2003 is a nongenuine Volume Licensing edition of Office, a very commonly pirated one at that.

    This does not mean that your Lenovo computer did not come with a genuine installation of Office, it just means that the Office now installed is nongenuine.  Did you provide the installation discs that came with the computer to the repair shop when the reformatted it?  If not, they probably used this copy of Office because it is widely available on the internet.  Do you still have the discs for Office that came with the computer?

    If the shop installed nongenuine Office, then this calls into question the legitimacy of the Windows 7 Professional installation that they did for you.  The license type they installed in an OEM SLP installation, which is legally only available preinstalled on a computer direct from the major manufacturer.  It is very unlikely that a repair shop would be legally installing this type of license onto a customer's three year old computer.  You may have paid a lot of money to them to install Windows, but it is quite possible that they used a pirated copy of Windows to do the installation, leaving you with nongenuine software.

    Did the shop explain what kind of license they installed?  Did they affix a new Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) for Windows 7 to the computer, just like the one for Vista that came from Lenovo?  Did you receive any Microsoft materials (hologrammed disc, CoA, product key on a Proof of License label, etc) with your purchase?
