Office Pro Plus Activation issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys.


    One of our customers has just bought themselves a brand new tower from Mesh. Its got Vista Home Prem, and came preloaded with the 60-day trial of home-and-student.


    He has two genuine copies of Professional plus 07, and rather than remove home and student, he loaded one of the two copies over the top of what was there already.


    Office continued to work, and it seems that he didnt activate it, however, a week later, office seems to have gone into reduced-functionality mode. He tried to activate it, but it wasnt having any of it. So he called us.



    I've removed both versions, and reloaded Pro Plus, only to find that once its installed, it goes straight into Reduced-Functionailty mode, and never gives the option to activate. When i go into the options, and press "Activate" nothing happens! This is exactly the same for Word/Excel/etc. However, the copy of Viseo 2007 which was installed at the same time activates perfectly.


    I've tried the manual removal for office 2007, no success, tried all of the fixes in the KB-article, no joy, the one thing that did make a difference was loading office, and NOT putting in the product key. Then the first time you open word, it prompted for the key, which i put in, it then activated SUCCESSFULLY, and worked fine, until i rebooted, whereupon it is now "Not activated", in Reduced-Functionality, and the "Activate button doesnt work. Running office/WGA diagnostics dont seem to do anything either.


    This is the result of the MGA:

    Any ideas? I've run out! He installed the other copy onto an XP machine, and it activates, and works fine.


    Any help would be much appreciated!

  • Hi ToGGoT,


    Hmmm....this is an interesting issue.  Thanks for the diagnostic output.  I can clearly see it's the Microsoft Office Professional Plus that's having the issue (not activated).  Microsoft Office Visio Professional validates as genuine and shows no problem.


    Have you tried this KB article?  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903275/en-us


    Let me know.

  • Hi ToGGoT,


    Shoot.  I think this will need some deeper troubleshooting than I can provide, it's seems like some sort of issue with Office itself.


    Can you file a service request?  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/ServiceRequest.aspx?displaylang=en&sGuid=896b4b18-d88f-4256-b82a-f9367b2dd09f 


    1) Provide a short description the error.
    2) Provide the KB articles that you have tried.
    3) Provide the diagnostic output.

    I wish I could have resolved this for you here.


    Take care,
