Exactly as it says, go to control panel, add-remove programs, Microsoft Office - change, but not uninstall. Have your CD ready, ask it to repair. Be ready to download lots of updates after it is finished from Windows Update.

How to activate office 2007


moz-screenshot.pnggenuine-ms-software.gif
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):
office-fail-validation.jpg 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 licenseir?t=techgadgetrev-20&l=ur2&o=1. Alternatively, you can use for free OpenOffice.org, an equally good productivity suite.

Your WINDOWS XP SP-2 needs a WINDOWS UPDATE. make sure you are connected to the internet. then click "START", click CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, and find the AUTOMATIC UPDATES TAB. turn on AUTOMATIC UPDATES. if the updates are already automatic, click the link provided in the tab that brings you to the windows update/microsoft update website. Click express settings. If an option POPS UP, saying "DOWNLOAD MICROSOFT UPDATES" click this option and allow your computer to download this UPDATE. if not, continue by clicking the EXPRESS SETTINGS, the windows website will check to see if your computer is UPDATED. You WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEM should have SERVICE PACK 3, continue this process until ALL UPDATES are installed. You may be required to restart your computer to finish updates.DOING THIS will update drivers as well, which most likely needs to be done in order for the CD to work properly.

Excel versus professional edition 2003


Hi Richard,

take a step back, and notice that they are talking about Microsoft Office Professional 2003, and not Windows XP Professional.

If you try to open an office document, in your case a .XLS file, and it says You need to insert the setup disk, then the install of Office is corrupt, and/or there are missing files that Office cannot locate.

you could cross your fingers and see if you perform a repair on Office.
you do this from Control Panel > Add Remove Programs, Click on MS Office 2003 Professional, and click Change/Remove . when the wizard starts, click Next and choose Repair .
it may still ask for the setup disks, or to browse to the folder where the setup cache files are located.
if this is the case, and you don't have the disk, your only option is to track down someone else who has the disk, or the folder on their c:\ where office offers to save its install files for the future when it might be needed.

I suspect that you did a File Cleanup on your c:\ and either you accidentally deleted the c:\MSOCache folder (which is hidden), or the Clean Up Wizard deleted it for you.

if you know someone with a PC with office 2003, you can copy this hidden file to your flash drive, and then dump the files back onto your computer.

i hope this helps.

Where I will find a site to download the Microsoft WindowsXP Professional Edition Service Pack1 to install on the CD


If you are not set up to recieve automatic updates from microsoft you should change your settings to download these automatically and keep these up to date. To do this go to the start button, go to control panel, and then to security center. Click on automatic updates and follow the prompts.To get all of the latest updates go to the start button, go to all programs, point to and left click on windows update. This will start the process of updating your system. After some updates your system will need to be restarted,some do not require a restart. You have to repeat the windows update process a few times in order to recieve all of the latest updates.
