Office 2007 - PDF Add-in Validation failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to add in the Save as PDF function to my copy of Office 2007.  Although the software is activated I am getting an error message as follows when the add-in seeks to validate Office 2007


    Microsoft Office Standard 2007:
    Validation Incomplete

    The validation process could not be completed. Necessary files may have been tampered with. The validation tool is unable to verify whether your copy of Office is genuine.


    Running the Validation Tool I get the following results

    The office component looks ok from the above so I can't understand why I can't pass this validation to add this functionality.

  • Ha answered my own question!

    I needed to run an Internet Explorer instance as an Adminstrator then it would let me validate as part of the install.  COnsidering MS recommend running Vista as a Standard User and not as an Administrator this kind of thing really shoots that down in flames.  Much as a I did with XP I think I will give up on the Standard User account and just run my whole installation as an Administrator.  Enhanced security - pfah!
