Windows Office XP No Longer Recognised As Genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the last couple of weeks, Office has been telling me that my version is no longer genuine. The problems seem to have stemmed from me cancelling a download/install of the genuine notification update.

    I have reinstalled this from the website and this has made no difference. No the program is telling me I have 4 days before it is classed as fake.

    The version of Office was installed 4 years ago on my laptop, a Sony Vaio VGN-T1XP/L, and is licenced for personal use and has had no problems in the past. Any help you could give to resolve the problem would be appreciated.

    The diagnostic report is as follows;

    <!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;} @page Section1 {size:595.3pt 841.9pt; margin:72.0pt 90.0pt 72.0pt 90.0pt; mso-header-margin:35.4pt; mso-footer-margin:35.4pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} -->

  • Hello mp138,

    Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:

    OGA Data-->

    Office Status: 114 Blocked VLK 2

    Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage - 114 Blocked VLK 2

    OGA Version: Registered, 2.0.48.0

    Signed By: Microsoft

    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1


    The report says you have a Blocked VLK, which means that (a) your Sony computer has a Volume Licensing edition of Office XP Professional with FrontPage installed, and that (b) a Blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) was used to install it.  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.

    If you are an individual consumer, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing materials such as a VL CD, and you certainly should not have received a Blocked Product Key.

    Your first course of action is to confront your seller with this information and demand either a full refund or to receive the genuine software you paid for.

    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 your use of this Volume Licensing edition of Office XP Professional with FrontPage is in association with an organization that has a Volume Licensing Agreement, then please contact the IT support staff of the organization for further assistance.

    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 installation which is 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 installation 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, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.
