did not pass validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a new OEM version of Windows XP pro off ebay for a home build PC.  It came sealed with a coa and appears to be genuine. the message I get is:

    This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation.

    The product key found on this computer was not assigned by Microsoft.

    Can you tell me what is going on?  thanks

    My report:

    Your purchased copy of XP Pro OEM seems to have installed a retail installation of XP Pro and they seem to have supplied you with an Invalid Product Key, meaning the PK was made up by a pirating program called a Key Generator and was never made by Microsoft, making it an Invalid Key.

    Please return the counterfeit materials to the eBay seller for a full refund.  If necessary, get PayPal and/or eBay customer service involved.



    Also, your installation of MS Office Professional 2003 is a Volume Licensing edition that was done with a volume licensing key.  While this product key is still reporting as genuine, the software is genuine ONLY when used as part of a Volume Licensing Agreement, and any other use of the product key and software is a nongenuine use.

    If you are under the impression that you purchased and installed a retail license for Office, unfortunately you did not.  I would recommend that you discuss the issue with whomever sold you Office.  At some point in the future, expect your installation of Office to be identified as nongenuine software.
