Office 2007 Pro fails validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey mates.


    I have Windows Vista Bussiness Edition & Office 2007 Pro edition (everything in english & original).

    I have a validation issue. I have reviewed other posts here where people says "delete file data.dat"

    I don't have the data.dat file anywhere on my system.

    What can i do? I mean i recieve office updates via windows update, but i want the "Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS Add-in for 2007 Microsoft Office programs" which requieres validation.

    I always get this message:

    2007 Microsoft Office system:
    Validation Incomplete

    The validation process could not be completed. Necessary files may have been tampered with. The validation tool is unable to verify whether your copy of Office is genuine.



    Please help.

    My Windows Vista came installed. I got my office via the Windows upgradeweb program.


    Thanks in advance

    Regards from Mexico.
