Validation of Office Standard 2007 on Vista machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Vista machine with Office 2007 Standard edition installed with keys etc.


    I am trying to install the hotmail update for Outlook and am getting an error on the genuine validation. The report is saying I do have a valid Office Standard installed but fail on the Office 2007 Home and Student edition.


    I do not understand why I should have that installed.


    Any suggestion how to resolve ??

  • Hi Jdejong1947,


      You should be able to uninstall the Office 2007 Home and Student edition by Clicking the 'Start' button, then clicking 'Control Panel', then double clicking the 'Programs and Features' icon. Once the 'Uninstall or change a program' window comes up, look for Office 2007 Home and Student edition and uninstall.


    If you have any problems, please download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report in the Office forums at http://forums.microsoft.com/Genuine/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=1005&SiteID=25
