Genuine Advantage and volume licensing RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am responsible for a small computer lab.  We have a number of machines running XP pro 2002  and Office 2003... we are part of the US department of defense, during an update, WGA is reporting that the copy of Office we have is invalid, since I know it's a valid copy how can I go about getting your tool to believe that it is, preferably with as little trouble as possible, as I have a number of machines that need updates

    How can I clear up this problem?

  • Good Afternoon Thomas,

    Thank you for posting in the Office Genuine Advantage "OGA" forums today. You mention working for the US DoD. Are you a contractor, GS rated employee or actual military member? Reason why I ask is it would help so I could redirect you accordingly. For now though please run the MGA Diagnostic Tool as outlined in this sticky post http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuineoffice/thread/8d640c5d-bb4b-4fcf-88d5-42355ed957ae .  Follow the steps and provide us with the MGA results. This will allow us to analyze what you are experiencing with Office Professional 2003. 

    Thank you again Thomas,
