  • Hello Aussie 2011,

    Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:

    OGA Data-->

    Office Status: 114 Blocked VLK 2

    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 - 114 Blocked VLK 2

    OGA Version: Registered, 2.0.48.0

    Signed By: Microsoft

    Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1

     

    Unfortunately, your installation of Office Professional 2003 on your HP computer is reporting as a nongenuine installation, because it is a Volume Licensing installation that was done with a widely pirated and now blocked Volume Licensing Product Key.

    A "blocked" VLK is one that was issued by Microsoft to a business, educational institution, or governmental agency for their exclusive use in accordance with a Volume Licensing Agreement.  (Note that such use does NOT allow the resale of such VLKs.)  However, because the VLK may have been reported lost, stolen, or compromised to the internet by the original keyholder, or because the Volume Licensing Agreement has expired, Microsoft has blocked the VLK from further use.

    If your use of this Volume Licensing edition of Office Professional Edition 2003 is in association with an organization that has a Volume Licensing Agreement, then please contact the IT support staff of the organization for further assistance.

    If you are an individual consumer, you should never have been sold Volume Licensing materials such as  Volume Licensing installation disc(s), and you certainly should not have received a Blocked Product Key.

    A common explanation for the current situation is that at one time your computer did have a Genuine installation of Office installed, but for some reason it was replaced with the current installation which is nongenuine.  This could have happened if you took your computer to a repair shop, or asked a friend or relative to help you with a computer problem, and they reinstalled Windows and/or some or all of your programs, using one of their own discs with the nongenuine software.  If this is the situation, you can Get Genuine once again by uninstalling the current nongenuine installation of Office and using your Genuine Microsoft hologrammed Office installation CDs, along with the genuine Product Key found on your Office Edition's Certificate of Authenticity, or on a yellow-orange product key sticker in your retail package, to put back the genuine installation of Office you may have already had on the computer.

    If you purchased the computer used/second-hand/refurbed/etc, then the previous owner or the seller may have installed the nongenuine Office.

    If the above circumstances do not apply, and you personally purchased and installed the current installation of Office that is now on the computer, then the only other explanation is that you were sold counterfeit software.  If so, your first course of action is to confront your seller with this information and demand a full refund.

    If the seller refuses to help, please file a piracy report at
    www.microsoft.com/piracy.  Also, depending upon whether you received "high quality" counterfeit materials, you may qualify for the Office Complimentary Offer or for the Office Genuine Advantage discounted offer.  Please see the FAQ here:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx?displaylang=en#ID0EKNAC  If you would like to participate in the Office Genuine Offer, please click the Learn More Online link being displayed on your screen by the OGA Notifier utility.

    It's not uncommon for people to write that this happened "suddenly."  Your Office was nongenuine the minute it was installed, but there was no mechanism installed on the computer to alert you of this fact until you downloaded and installed Windows Update KB949810, Office Genuine Advantage Notifications:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949810  Since this Update is classified as an optional update it is not automatically downloaded, so it could have taken quite a while for it to finally be downloaded and installed.

  • I did that and emailed MS the results. I received 2 responses. One is to validate Office. That does nothing  - it just loops me back to the page w/ the warning about what to do.  The other email requested that I uninstall the current version and reinstall  it. Apparently the product key I gave is correct but the diagnostics revealed an invalid key.  I hope this works. I find it a bit "convenient" for MS that the first page we see is the page showing how we can purchase a new version.
