Office 2003 reported to not be genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • My corporate laptop has windows XP and Office 2003 which were installed at work.  I just recently started to get the message that my copy of Office 2003 is not genuine.  I am certain that we have up to date licences for it.

    I ran the software from MS and received the following output:

    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

    I ran the diagnostic tool and received this:

  • Hello bicycleriver,

    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,
    Signed By: Microsoft
    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1

    The report is confirming what you learned, that the installation of Office 2003 currently on the computer was done with a Blocked Volume Licensing Key.

    It's possible that the genuine installation of Office that was on the computer was somehow overwritten with this nongenuine installation that's on there now.  This could have happened if someone had to repair Windows and in the process did a repair or fresh installation of Office but used the wrong Office CD and/or Product Key.

    Working under the assumption that your company has a current and valid Volume Licensing Agreement, please follow these instructions:

    1.  Download and run a keyfinding utility to determine the product key used to install the nongenuine installation of Office 2003 Pro that is the subject of the report above.  The Magical Jellybean Keyfinder has been around for years and has a great reputation for accuracy.

    2.  Compare the reported product key with your compnay's Volume Licensing Key associated with their current and valid Volume Licensing Agreement.

    3.  If the keys are different (as we would expect given the info provided), please use the procedure in this MS KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895456 to change the nongenuine product key to the genuine product key.

    4.  Restart the computer twice, then visit www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on the Validate Office button to clear the OGA Notifier cache and to Validate the newly installed product key.

    5.  Post back here to let us know if this process worked for you.
