Invalid VLK RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello
         My  MS Office is telling me that it is not genuine. I have un-installed and re-installed but get the same message. I bought the MS Office pack from a licenced re-seller. How do I fix this problem?? It is now appearing on 2 machines with different product keys.

    HELP

  • Hello MikeSA1965,

    Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:
    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 - 108 Invalid VLK
    OGA Version: Registered, 1.7.105.35
    Signed By: Microsoft
    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1


    Note that the report says you have an invalid VLK, which means that (a) your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of Office 2003 Pro installed, and that (b) an invalid Volume Licensing Key (VLK) was used to install it.  An "invalid" VLK is one that was not issued by Microsoft, rather software pirates use a program that reverse engineers the Product Key algorithm and then uses it to generate new "keygen" product Keys that will install the product but will not pass activation and/or validation, sicne they are not Microsoft-generated Product Keys.

    As an individual consumer you should never have been sold Volume Licensing materials such as a VL CD, and you certainly should not have received an invaid 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, dpending upon whether you received "high quality" counterfeit maerials, you may qualify for the Office Complimentary Offer.  Please see the FAQ here:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx?displaylang=en#ID0EONAC
