Microsoft Office Professional validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased this software over the internet and then discovered that it came from China.  Can I validate the software with Microsoft before I install it?  I will be annoyed if it is counterfeit as the supplier came up first on google search and teh site was in English.

  • Hello acc1919,

      Unfortunatly, no. The only way, that I am aware of, to Validate Windows or Office is while it is not installed.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Darin MS
