  • Nischal,

    When Phil said "in reguards to office" he actually meant "windows" changing the WPA file will let you activate.

  • I would recommend first going back to your reseller to remedy the issue you're having with Microsoft Office. Your copy of Office is not genuine and belongs to a large corporation in the United States - and is only for business/corporate use only. Its best to resolve the issue before any further issues occur..


    In regards to office, locate the file "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" in your c:\windows\system32 directory. Right click both, then select properties - ensure both files do not have read-only on them.

  • Thanks. I will check regarding the office. Any suggestions for the windows activation problem.
