  • Question

  • MS Office 2003.  It would appear that an extensive number of people out there have bought MS Office 2003, like ourselves and then some time later are being told it is not genuine. We purchased our copy in 2003/4, completed all updates, including all genuine advantage validation updates and everything was fine for 6 years. Then in late 2009, when Microsoft were obviously struggling to sell Office 2007, our 2003 version suddenly became a non-genuine product. I find this kind of sales tactic objectionable. During this period we had the ocassional notice of validation issues, ran the validation tool and all was well. It seems to be really strange that numerous people get the same message after purchasing MS Office 2003, using it trouble free for an extensive period, then suddenly it is not valid? Does anyone else have the same suspicions as me concerning the subject?
