How to activate office 2007


Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) is another anti-piracy initiative by Microsoft on its popular business productivity product – Microsoft Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007. Similar to Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA), OGA requires users of the Microsoft Office software to validate their installed copy of Microsoft Office in order to download files from Microsoft Download Center, access updates or hotfixes from Office Update, and receive special offers for genuine users.

OGA is not to be confused with Office Product Activation that is mandatory required to during the installation process in order to use the Office software whereby users enter a serial product key that is validated online over the Internet or by phone by Microsoft to confirm that the product key has not been used on more personal computers than are permitted by the Microsoft Software License Terms. To crack Office XP/2003/2007 activation, you need a key generator that provides volume license key (Guide: How to change Office 2007 product key).
If you’re using a keygen-generated product key or publicly available leaked Office 2007/2003/XP serial number, especially the volume license key (VLK) that requires no activation when used, most of the keys no longer able to pass the OGA genuine validation test anymore with the following error message (Office 2007 as instance):
This computer has failed validation.
Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007: Validation Failed
The product key used to install Office is not valid. It has been identified by Microsoft as a false key used with counterfeit copies of Office.
[0x80180108]
It’s likely that users who failed validation check may continue to use Microsoft Office as per normal and use Microsoft Updates to update critical patches. However, if you want to download add-ins, updates, templates, samples and tutorials, Smart Tags, Language Interface Packs and Software Development Kits (SDK) that require Genuine Office validation, you won’t be able to do so.
To bypass or crack the Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2003 OGA genuine validation, follow these steps:

  1. Install and activate Microsoft Office 2007 or other version of Office. If you intend to use the key-gen, you must install Enterprise edition.
  2. Download the patched ogacheckcontrol.dll.
  3. If you never validate your copy of Office, go to Genuine Microsoft Software web page, and run the Office Validation Assistant by using Internet Explorer (not Firefox as it will use different version of ActiveX component). This is to install the components required for Office validation. If you fail the validation – Office not genuine – simply ignore the message.
  4. Copy the cracked ogacheckcontrol.dll to the following location: Windows XP and Windows Vista (32-bit): \Windows\System32\
    Windows XP and Windows Vista (64-bit): \Windows\SysWOW64\
  5. Attempt to download Office files that require validation again. All downloads should work now.
The OGA Check Control crack works on Office 2007 Enterprise Edition, Office 2007 Blue Edition, Office 2007 Professional Edition, Office 2007 Pro Plus, Office 2007 Standard Edition and all Office 2003 Editions.
If you’re using invalid or blacklisted product key, you may have to change the Office product key (Guide: How to change Office 2007 product key). This is especially so if you’re using Microsoft Office 2007 Blue Edition.
Disclaimer: This patcher is for genuine Office user who having problem to pass genuine validation only. To use Office 2007, you must purchase a license. Alternatively, you can use for free OpenOffice.org, an equally good productivity suite.

ms office 2007for xp product key


Hi,
You can find the key on the cover of the Office disk otherwise you may get in touch with the Microsoft if you have purchased the license version, the number of Microsoft is - (800) (642-7676).
Fixya does not provide Microsoft product keys. You should be purchasing a genuine license for your own use. By using an acquired free key from the internet would get you into software piracy which is illegal. Save yourself from trouble and buy a genuine license.You will also be entitled to Microsoft office downloads without further trouble.
Thank you !!

i want to remove microsoft for on my dekstop


So, I understand that you're running a "bootleg" version of Windows, and you want to bypass the Windows Genuine Advantage "anti-piracy" provisions.

Have your credit-card ready, and call 1-800-RU-LEGIT, and Microsoft will help you license a 'legal" version of Windows.

Or, buy a Windows 7 "upgrade", and install Windows 7 onto your desktop.

copy of windows xp did not pass genuine windows validation


The Windows Genuine Advantage program for Windows XP uses Windows product activation, validation, and notifications to verify that your copy of Windows is genuine. Using genuine Windows delivers better performance and lets you access all downloads in the Microsoft Download Center, while helping to protect you from the risks of counterfeit software.

Activation is an anti-piracy technology designed to make sure that your copy of Windows XP is properly licensed. It works by verifying that the product key is valid and is only being used on the number of computers permitted by the software license. Activation uses a simple and fast process to protect your copy and ensure that you paid for the right thing.

Validation is a quick process that allows you to find out if the product key you activated is counterfeit or has been misused. For example, you may have accidentally received a product key that was reported as lost or stolen by its original owner. Sometimes, during a repair or reinstall, an invalid product key is used if the original product key is not handy. Microsoft values your privacy and does not use information collected during the validation process to identify you or contact you.1

Notifications helps Microsoft to fight software piracy and helps to you validate that the copy of Microsoft Windows XP that's installed on your computer is genuine and properly licensed. It reminds you that your copy of Windows XP did not pass validation and provides resources that help you to easily fix the problem online.

By confirming that your copy of Windows XP is genuine, you can take advantage of all the capabilities, support, and continuous improvements—as well as the peace of mind—that come with using genuine Windows.

If the above things wont done

Go thorugh this link WGA Validation

Hope this will helps you

Thanks & Regards

Windows Genuine Advantage In Windows Vista


This is Microsoft's answer to piracy, the only solution I know without making it illegal is to speak to Microsoft directly to confirm your serial number with them.
