MS Office Validation fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Stephen,


    I have follow your suggestions for resolving problems when the system thinks MS Office isn't genuine.  We bought ours from Dell and have been using it for 3 yrs but when I try to get SP 3 it thinks it hasn't been activated.  I got as far as using the MGA Diagnostic tool and have copied the Office tab (see below).  Does this shed any light on the issue?

    I noticed you have proxy settings established. Do you have antivirus, spyware detection software turned on which may prevent you from activating? If so please disable long enough for the activation process to complete then re-establish connections. 

     Attached below is a Knowledge Base (KB) article regarding the problem you having.  This article describes how to troubleshoot problems that you may experience when trying to activate a Microsoft Office product.


    When you activate an Office retail license, you enable full product functionality. Additionally, you are no longer prompted to activate the retail license every time that you start the Office product. 


    When you try to start or activate an Office product, you may experience symptoms that indicate one of the following:


    ·         You have not successfully activated the Office product.

    ·         You must reactivate the Office product.

    ·         There may be part of a previous Office installation in the registry or in the Office folders.


    Please let us know if this solves your situation. Have a super weekend.


    Thank you
