Genuine Office 2003 (Professional) RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the last few days every time I open Word or another Office application I get an irritating message telling me that my Office software is not genuine, needs activation. If I go into the help menu of Word (as recommend for your message) or any of the other programs and attempt to Activate Product my software tells me that it is already activated. I have the original CD of the software, the discs have holograms and I have a product key. The only event that the MGA message coincides with was a recent automatic updates.

    How do I get rid of the messages and the irritating little star in the right hand corner of my screen. Who recognize me the time spent to understand the problem?, Please don't tell me to go buy genuine software - I already have that.

    Regard, Rgmz138

  • Hello Rgmz138,

    The mgadiag report is showing that your installation of Office XP Pro is not activated.

    Lately, we have noticed a lot of folks posting with similar situations, that their longtime installations of Office XP have suddenly become "nongenuine" due to becoming not activated.

    I have copied from a Stephen Holm post to another foum user who had similar symptoms.  Please follow the instructions and then post back to let us know how you did:

    Thank you for visiting the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) program forum. Your issue appears to be outside the scope of the OGA program forum. In an attempt to assist I would like to provide the following:

    Open My Computer located on your desktop.

    Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Data\

    NOTE:  The application data file may be hidden. Use the Tools drop down menu do the following: Folder Options->View->Hidden Files and Folders->Show Hidden Files and Folders to show the folder. Please re-hide the files once you have completed all the steps.

    Right click data.dat file, then click Delete.

    The data.dat file is for Office, Not OGA.

    Once the file has been deleted, open an Office application such as MS Word and activate it.

    If product activation was successful try the Office Validation located here:
