  • From your MGA report:

    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - 108 Invalid VLK

    Unfortunately, the installed copy of Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 is non-genuine because it is counterfeit.  The invalid product key was never issued by Microsoft and was likely created by a counterfeiter using an illegal product key generator (KeyGen).  You can review your options by visiting
    Microsoft Genuine Advantage and clicking on Validate Office.  When validation fails, you will be presented with a Get Genuine button to click on.

    P.S.  You should send a copy of your MGA report to the entity that sold you the counterfeit copy of Office and demand a complete refund.

  • Well, thanks for the response.  My partner bought our company's Office and Windows software, and she just said that she bought it from a third party vendor online.  I asked her the cost and she said she received something like a 10-15% discount by buying it from them and she guaranteed me it was  genuine.  Now I am searching to see where the link is to the site who sold her this software.  This wasn't downloaded by us from some torrent site, this looked totally legit according to her and the prices were still expensive.  I'm so mad I could burst right now.  Anyway, thanks for your help.

  • Hello marnold2000,

    Normal precautions about purchasing software online are good things to keep in mind (if the price is too good to be true....., purchase from trusted sellers, purchase with a credit card, examine what you are sent for obvious signs of fakery, etc), but some of the counterfeits that are available are VERY "good" copies and even experienced Office users might not notice the very subtle clues.  You can see some of the counterfeits at Microsoft's www.howtotell.com site.

    Hopefully you will be able to get satisfaction from your vendor in the form of a refund or replacement with Genuine software.

    As a fallback position, Microsoft has the Office Genuine Offer as mentioned by Carey.  Allow me to correct Carey's link to it:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx#ID0EKNAC
