Office Status: 114 Blocked VLK 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have also had same problem. I have same message about microsoft office.  We have two office professional discs as well which appear to be genuine.  Plus a copy of Office 97 for small business.  So I'm not sure why our software appears to be not genuine.

    I have run the utility and this is what it came up with for windows

    So windows seems to be okay.

    On one of the notices that came up with the validation result initially it said the office software was licensed to Ox80180114.  Can you find out who this is?  I can't believe the software we bought is stolen.  I can only wonder if there is a mix up of software on this machine because my son had to rebuild all the hardware last summer and may have put software on it from different lots that we have bought over the years.  I would be very grateful for help on this as I don't like to think we have been sold stolen software or copied software.

    Hope you can help before we all go crazy! We're trying to run a small business and are really worried and rather pushed for time.

    Many thanks

    Many thanks

  • Hello Standingroom,

    Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:

    Your installation of Office Professional 2003 on your computer is a nongenuine installation.  It is a volume licensing installation that was done with a Blocked Volume Licensing Key.  A "blocked" VLK is one that was issued by Microsoft to a business, educational institution, or governmental agency for their exclusive use in accordance with a Volume Licensing Agreement.  (Note that such use does NOT allow the resale of such VLKs.)  However, because the VLK may have been reported lost, stolen, or compromised to the internet by the original keyholder, or because the Volume Licensing Agreement has expired, Microsoft has blocked the VLK from further use.

    Normally, legitimate users of Volume Licensing editions of Office are associated with larger business, educational, or governmental organizations.  If that's you, please contact your organization's IT support staff for further assistance.

    If your use of this installation of Office Professional 2003 is not associated with a larger business, educational, or governmental organization, and you purchased the installed copy of Office Professional 2003 thinking that it was a retail license to be sold to individual consumers, it is likely that you are a victim of software piracy or counterfeiting.  As an individual consumer, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing (VL) materials such as the VL installation disc and you certainly should not have received a Blocked VLK for Office Professional 2003.  You should have been sold Genuine retail licensed software.

    If so, your first course of action is to confront your seller with this information and demand a full refund.

    If the seller refuses to help, please file a piracy report at www.microsoft.com/piracy.  Also, depending upon whether you received "high quality" counterfeit materials, you may qualify for the Office Complimentary Offer or for the Office Genuine Advantage discounted offer.  Please see the FAQ here:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx?displaylang=en#ID0EKNAC  If you think that you qualify for the Genuine Office Offer, apply for the Offer thru the Learn More Online link that the OGA Notifier is displaying.

    In another thread, you wrote, "The sticker on the back of them says that it is OEM software which I assume is original equipment manufacturer software (possibly Dell).  My son rebuilt this computer completely last summer so it is now basically new.  If I end up having to take of the office and re-install it from these disks, will the fac that the software is OEM affect the genuine advantage status?.....If it is VLK and from Dell does this mean I can't use the software on this re-built machine?"

    Please note that the End User Licensing Agreement for OEM software only allows this type of license to run on the computer onto which it was first installed, and it is not permitted to be moved to any other computer.  Therefore, assuming a new motherboard was installed in the rebuilt computer (because a new motherboard=a new computer for licensing purposes, you are not permitted to use the Dell-supplied OEM license(s) for Office that you may have on this rebuilt computer, as they are only valid on the Dell computers they came with.

    Also note that Dell does not sell Volume Licensing Software to individual consumers.

    One other possibility is that at one time your computer did have a Genuine installation of Office installed, but for some reason it was replaced with the current installations which are nongenuine.  This could have happened if you took your computer to a repair shop and they reinstalled Windows and/or some or all of your programs.  You Get Genuine once again by uninstalling the current nongenuine installations of Office and using your Genuine Microsoft hologrammed Office installation CDs, along with the genuine Product Key found on your Office Edition's Certificate of Authenticity or yellow-orange Proof of License label, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.

  • OKay,

    Thank you. I will have another hunt round the office to see if I can shed more light on this - find more orignal discs, boxes etc.,  and then it sounds like the motherboard is the problem.  Why then does our copy of windows seem okay?  Or is that suddenly going to become non-genuine also?  I am still uncertain as to where the VLK stuff comes from but will look to see if I can find the original paperwork for these.  I do have a completely untouched copy of office 97.  If I installed this can I then upgrade it throught ms web site, or is it not worth doing? 

    Also can I run one copy (if licensed to two computers) on our office mini network?  Not sure what I need as far as running two or possibly thee (in future) computers.

    Many thanks
