Office XP validation failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have Office XP installed on my PC.  It has been installeed and activated for over 2 years!  Noe the Validation things says that it can not validate because Office XP is not activated.

    I have uninstalled all Trail Apps, but no joy.

    Now have have this "Star" in my task bar, how do I remove it.  Clearly there is some Bugs in the validation tool. I have been getting updates and validations for over 2 years from MS, so now why is this happening.

    OK... I have run the Diagnostic tools of Office.  It found no issues.

  • Hi

    I ran the MO Diag again, bit there is no option to copy or print a report.

    I checked the Control Panel and it is MS Offic XP Pro installed, but when I go to about, it is MS Office 2002.

    I personnally reinstalled all software on theis PC over 2 years ago.  It is MS Office XP I installed.

    This is so annoying.

  • SAB,

    Did you follow these steps which are located in our announcement section. Next tell us all the error codes and messaging you are receiving.


    Please follow the steps outlined below as it could either resolve your issue or, if need be, provide us with additional information to determine the cause of this issue.

     

    1.      Ensure you log onto the computer experiencing the issue with “Administrator” rights.

    2.      Next we would like to confirm that you are running the most current version of the Genuine Advantage control on your computer. In order to do this please follow the below link and choose the “Validate Office” option.

     

    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine

    If the above steps did not resolve your issue lets continue with the steps below.

    If you could also please follow the steps outlined below, the diagnostics Web Site will attempt to resolve the validation errors you are experiencing with Office.

    http://www.microsoft.com/Genuine/diag/RunDiags.aspx?displayLang=en

    Next follow the on-screen prompts to resolve the issue if any of the checks at the above site fail. If, after attempting to resolve the issue as per the instructions on the above site fails, please refer to the link below and run the MGA Diagnostics tool:

     

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

     

    You will be prompted to either “Run” or “Save” the tool. Choose to “Run” the tool and follow the on-screen prompts. You will receive an “Internet Explorer-Security Warning” dialog box for the “Windows Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool”; you must choose to “Run” this tool when prompted.

     

    Once you are presented with the Diagnostics tool choose “Continue” to run the diagnostic report. If the “RESOLVE” button is available after running the diagnostics, please click “RESOLVE” to allow the diagnostic tool to attempt a repair.

     

    1.      After running the MGA Diagnostic tool, click on the “Windows” tab and then click on “Copy”.

    2.      Please return to this post and “Paste” the results here for additional review.

     

    Step 2 is to look on the computer itself, in the documentation you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.


    Thank you,


    Stephen

  • Morning SAB Admin,


    Thank you for providing us with your MGA Diagnostic Report. Please try the following steps.

    Open My Computer located on your desktop.
