  • Hello AMNELSON,

    Both your Vista Home Basic and Office Enterprise 2007 installations are showing as Genuine, so I am not sure what validation error message you would have seen.

    I did note that your Office Enterprise 2007 installation is a Volume Licensing installation.  Volume Licenses are to be used only by larger business/educational/governmental organizations, and are not supposed to be used by inividual consumers.  It is not the OEM software that you think it is. Dell does not preinstall Volume Licensing software for sale to individual consumers.

    Is your use of this Volume License of Office Enterprise 2007 assoiated with such an organization?
