Office 2003 validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had to reinstall my Office 2003 and now upddating fails the validation test saying "invalid product key". I have the original CD case with the original product code sticker on the back (OEM software) that came with my system to prove I am the real owner of the software. How can this be resolved?

     

    Thanks,

    Nolan Armstrong

  • Nolan_A,

     

    Thank you for posting your diagnostic information and posting on the thread. Diagnostic results help our team find resolutions. I have extracted a portion of your diagnostic results to review with you.

         I am sorry to hear about the problem your currently experiencing. I can see right away what the issue is with Office and why it is not passing validation.  Unfortunately, the product key used to install Office Professional Edition 2003 is a Volume License Key (VLK) that has been blocked per the request of the legal VLK holder.  As a rule, VL editions of either an Operating System and/or Office should not be sold to individual consumers. Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers. Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP and version of MS Office are Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.

     

     As a customer there are options available to you for a resolution.  First, if this comes as a total surprise to you, please go back to where you purchased Office and let them know it is a counterfeit copy and demand they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy which was originally paid for. Print a copy of the diagnostic report so you may show them proof for the 108 Blocked VLK statuses.  In any case, please uninstall the non-genuine installation of Office Professional 2003 to alleviate any complications which may arise from the non-genuine status of your Office.  Second, if you purchased this copy of Office from a reseller or retailer, you are a victim and should report this piracy to Microsoft. Microsoft legal will follow up on all leads provided. Reporting piracy to Microsoft will help alleviate others in becoming victims such as yourself. You may be eligible for a complimentary replacement copy if you were sold a high quality counterfeit copy of Office.  For details on the ways to “Get Genuine”, see the web page that outlined your validation failure details or http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/. It will provide all of the possible steps which you can take.


    Thank you,

  • Your MGA indicates an invalid VLK.

    I understand that, the problem is that the software installed and validated several times over the years as I would upgrade the system. No it suddenly refuses to validate.

     

    Are you sure that you have a genuine copy of Office 2003?

    This and the OS were supplied in factory sealed cardboard cases with all of the standard Mocrosoft sticker. Just to sue I followed the above link "howtotell" and everything matches indicating this to be a genuine Moicrsoft product.

     

    Now what?
