  • Question

  • I have had probles trying to get updates for my Microsoft Office xp Professional version 2002 software. I have loaded the OGA and it fails validation due to the error that the software has not been activated. If I try to activate the software, it tells me that the software has already been activated. I know the software is genuine due to the fact I have the CD in my hand.

     

    This verison of software has been re-installed on my computer due to a hard drive failure.

     

    The following is the reuslts of the dianostic tests.

    I understand the inconvenience you are currently experiencing surrounding Office activation. In turn I would like to provide the following steps to try and resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to attempt resolving this issue.  Open My Computer located on your desktop
    1. 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 and follow:  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.


    2. Right click the data.dat file, then click “Delete”.
    3. This data.dat file is for Office (not OGA)
    4. Once the file has been deleted, open an Office application such as MS Word and “ACTIVATE” it.
    5. If product activation was successful try the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA). Please launch the following link and begin the OGA process again: (this is the OGA part; Office Genuine Advantage):  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/office/Validate.aspx?displaylang=eng
