X11-45391, are they genuine? RRS feed



    Sleep Sleep,


         Curious where do you plan on purchasing the software from? As far as looking @ the part number and being able to detect if the product is genuine vs. non-genuine I would have no way of telling. Please follow this link:, here you will be provided with information to protect yourself against piracy.  Since you seem interested in purchasing MS software let me direct you to You can buy directly from Microsoft. 


         We CANNOT determine the "Quality" level of non-Genuine submissions and cannot guarantee such a thing here on the forum. We have a 3rd party registered Cryptography lab who evaluates EVERY (really!) submission for the High-Quality Counterfeit replacement program - as they have a pre-determined subset of items they look for.




    Take care
