    Is there any way of getting printable validation report?

     

    I was told to validate all computers in our office that have installed XP + Office 2003.

     

    So i go to microsoft website and click validate.

     

    But all I get on the screen is VALIDATION SUCCESSFUL.

     

    I am going to need some proff that its all legit so I can show my bosses that I have done my work.

     

    Thx for your help.

    Thank you for posting in the WGA forum.  Maybe I can provide information which will assist you.  First download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 .  Next click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into either MS Word, notpad or wordpad. Last you may print out the report. 

     

    Maybe I can offer additional information to assist you with maintaining accountability for assets and software. First check the following site:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/ The site will provide valuable information about your  software. Next verify the following: 

     

     

     

    Step 2 review the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for each computer. 


    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?
    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?
    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?
    4. Does the installed software match the COA placed on the system? 

     

    Visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine and locate the Software Assest Management (SAM) in the lower left hand corner. Open and review this program. SAM can provide you with an electronic means for tracking and accountability.  Hope this has helped you.

     

    Have a wonderful day :-)
