  • Question

  • I am currently using Office 2007 beta and plan on going back to Office 2003. However, when I went to validate my office, I get the following error:

    Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003:
    Validation Failed  

    The product key used to install Office has been blocked by Microsoft.

    [0x80180114] Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003:
    Validation Failed  

    The product key used to install Office has been blocked by Microsoft.

    [0x80180114] Microsoft Office OneNote 2003:
    Validation Failed  

    The product key used to install Office has been blocked by Microsoft.

    I do not have these products running on my PC and I do not know how it was ever on my PC. How can I remove this error message

    Thnaks

    Thank you and it works.

    I do plan on buying Office 2007, just do not know what package I will buy. I wish that the Office 2007 Student verson would include Outlook instead on One Note. Oh well,

    Thanks again

  • I read the answer, but I see a reference to Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003.  I'm running a straight Plain Jane MS Office 2003 as far as I can tell.  It has Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and I believe a couple other Programs in it, but none with names like MS Project or MS OneNote.  Is this why I, perhaps, got the error msg 0x80180114 , contact MS???

     

    Thanks....

  • Jerry,

     

    The 114 error code is a blocked volume licensing key. Please run the MGA diagnostic test and provide us with the results. 

     

    Download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

    Step 2 is tell us about the COA. Tell us:
    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?
    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?
    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?
    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.
    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.

     

     

    thank you,
