Validation hell... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, having no luck validating windows, although I'm sure I've done it before just fine. Can't think of anything I've changed either. The report from the GD tool is pased below.


    1. It's Windows XP Home Edition

    2. I have no idea about black lettering. It came installed with the computer, and I may have misplaced any documents.

    3. See 2.

    4. OK, no product key posted.

    5. I initially came across this problem while looking to see if my version of Outlook was up to date. I was guided to the Microsoft Update site, and then starting having all these problems validating. Tried the ActiveX and alternative methods, with no success. When prompted, following failure of the alternate validation method, I've run the diagnostics program but it seems to stall on the Windows validation ActiveX loaded box. It doesn't say "failed" just "checking" but that never changes.


    Here is the GD report:

  • Ben,


    Please try and install WGA ActiveX manually. Please let us know if this solves the problem you are experiencing.  Please follow the steps below:


    1.       Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    2.       Type in “iexplore http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=39204” then click ‘OK’. You will be prompted to download “LegitCheckControl.cab”.

    3.       Choose Open. Once this completes, a window will open showing two files, LegitCheckControl.dll and LegitCheckControl.inf. Leave this window open for now.

    4.       Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    5.       Type in “system32”, then click ‘OK’. (If you are running Windows XP, you may need to click “show files” to allow access to this system directory.)

    6.       Drag the LegitCheckControl.dll file from the window that was open into the system32 directory. If you are prompted to overwrite a file, choose ‘Yes’ to overwrite any existing file. (If you are running Vista, you may be prompted to provide administrator permission to complete the action. If so, press “Continue” and allow it.)

    7.       Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    8.       Type “regsvr32 LegitCheckControl.dll”, and then click ‘OK’.

    9.       You should see a dialog saying “DllRegisterServer in LegitCheckControl.dll succeeded.”


    Thank you,


    Stephen Holm, MS
