Q: De-Activate Software with XP - OFFICE2003

I am about to retire a computer due to defects - but it has some LEGIT retail MS Software installed (Office 2003 STE & Access2003 and perhaps 1-2 others) -

If I uninstall the software, will it UNACTIVATE its licences to allow a re-install on the replacement system?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi guys!

sorry for the spelling

i have a notebook, and the keyboard broke, i buyed a usb keyboard.
the key of wireless connection dont work and the new usb keyboard do not have such key

there is a way to activate wireless by the software or key combination in a regular keyboard?

A:Activate wireless by the software

Check the driver software that is loaded for your wireless card. Most of them have an enable/disable option.

Check on eBay for a new keyboard. I've gotten replacement laptop keyboards for $10, and they are usually very simple to replace.

I have an HP Media Center with Windows XP Professional installed. I recently had a problem and had to restore my computer. I had previously backed up my computer's hard drive to a removable drive. After restoring my computer, a lot of my restored applications did not function properly.

The problem I am requesting help for is for a program that loads, but whenever I try to run it I get an error report. The program is for the Dacal CD Library DC-101 CD storage carousel.

The error details Are:

I have installed and uninstalled the software from the original CD several times all with the same result. My computer is for a single user (myself) and I have Administrator authority.

The software worked fine when initially installed, before I restored my computer. I even tried to restore from my backup with the same results. The installed hardware (the carousel) works manually, but I would really like to create and update an index on my computer.

Hello!
I recently uninstalled "MSoffice2003" from my computer because the trial period(60 Days)
had expired(sometime ago). I used the "add/remove" in control panel to unistall the program. Everything appeared to have gone as it should have,no problems. I checked my computer for any and all "remnanet of msoffice2003" there was none. The problem I have now is the following: windows installer keeps trying to install msoffice2003. Windows installer starts and says "windows installer installing msoffice2003 please wait until windows configures ms office2003"and it never finish it just keeps repeating the same function over and over. I can not find any source of msoffice2003 on my computer.I checked registery for errors and I downloaded Windows" Install clean up tool" from Micosoft and followed all of the instructions.but since there was no msoffice 2003 to be found on the list, the tool did not serve a purpose. Again my problem is Windows Installer keeps trying to install "MSOffice2003" How do I resolve this problem. Thank You

These are the instructions I found googling my problem:

1. Type services.msc, and then press Enter.
2. In the list of services locate Software Licensing
3. Right-click it, select Properties
4. Change ?Startup type:? to Automatic, then click OK
5. You may then need to select Software Licensing again then click ?Restart the service?
(from Windows Activation Error, Error Code 0x80070426? - Microsoft Community)

My problem is I can't start the Software Protection. A few minutes later, it just turns itself off. So without starting it, I can't even change the Startup type.

A:Error 0x80070426. Also can't activate Software Protection!

Update!

I found a way to change start-up type by editing regedit.

Here's how:
ctrl + r
regedit
enter
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sppsvc
Double click 'Start' key to change value
Do the same for 'DelayedAutoStart'

Change accordingly:
Automatic (Delayed Start)
DelayedAutostart = 1

Start = 2

Automatic
DelayedAutostart = 0

Start = 2

Manual
DelayedAutostart = 0

Start = 3

Disabled
DelayedAutostart = 0

Start = 4

Now, my problem is that the service turns itself off automatically, after a few minutes. Someone please chip in.

Can you do a System Restore to a time before you installed SP2?

So basically today I went on some random website (meebo.com) that I regularly use to chat. A few moments after that, some virus scanner comes up and begins to scan my computer. I quickly close it because I know it's probably some Spyware... but I think it was too late. Soon after all this other "antivirus" software began to start scanning on my computer and I quickly closed them all. But now about every four or five seconds a windows "Security Warning" pops up on my computer and tells me that I cannot execute an application--usually it's "wuauclt.exe" And an Antivirus software alert also pops up on the bottom right hand of my screen telling me that a trojan is attempting to infect my computer. Also, internet explorer windows pop up every couple of minutes attempting to open up viagra or other porno websites.I've seen the rules for creating posts, but I absolutely cannot open any sort of application on my computer because every time I try to open an app, Security Warnings pop up on my computer telling me the application is infected and cannot be opened.

I first installed OfficeXP on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Everything works fine until I close Office. In other words, I can open, edit, and close files, but after closing, when I exit, Office often crashes. I think it is trying to write some config or template files when closing and hitting permission problems. I then uninstalled OfficeXP, bought Office2003, and installed Office2003. It has the same problem. I see crashing in both Excel and Word. I set Word's customization so that it would always show full menus. When I closed Word, it crashed. The next time I opened Word, I had short menus, suggesting that the customization file wasn't successfully saved. So either it is crashing before saving the customization or crashing because it can't save the customization. If I try to exit with a document or spreadsheet open, it will sometimes crash and corrupt the file. I tried changing Office compatibility mode on and off. No help. Can you advise me on how to fix this? Thank you for your help.

I just spent the last three hours on the phone. I was transferred 5 times and no one could help me. I want to rage beyond words right now.

So here is the problem...

I have a legitimate copy of Windows 7 ultimate. (that I bought in 2010 from my college.)

When windows 10 came out I made a mistake and did a CLEAN install not knowing the idiotic rule of not being able to validate the old windows 7 key. (validation only works if I did a windows 7 to 10 upgrade FOR SOME STUPID REASON.)

Now I am stuck in windows 10. My windows 7 key will not validate to re download windows 7 in order to UPGRADE to windows 10.

I have the disc of windows 7 but I do not have a CD rom. (so I will need to do a USB install)

When I call Microsoft they check my key (to ensure it is valid) they say everything is fine with it, but like I said I cannot use it.


I have not given this key to ANYONE. I also did not deactivate it before the windows 10 clean install.

When I attempt to download the windows 7 download and enter my key I get this response...

"Error
The product key you entered appears to be for software licensed through an Enterprise Agreement. Please contact the Volume Licensing Service Center for software recovery options or visit the Volume Licensing Home Page for more information on Enterprise

I have a Windows 2012 R2 server running as my KMS host. This server has been in production for over 18 months. It services both Windows 7 Pro, Ent, Win8.1, Office 2010 Pro Plus and Office 2013 Pro. I set this KMS up via the VLS on 2012 and manage it via
VMAT 3.0 version 6.2.9200.0. After I replaced my 2012 server kms host key with the newer one that would activate Windows 10, did an offline via telephone activation. My issue is that now I can activate all my servers (2012 r2) but cannot activate any Windows

A:Cannot Activate no option to activate

Hi, welcome to the forums

If you type activate in to the start search box then click 'Activate Windows' this should take you the Windows activation screen.

My concern is that the 'Not Genuine' notification normlly occurs on pirated copies of Windows 7 with altered activation technology files. Is your copy legal?


   Warning
The use of, and request for help using pirated software is strictly prohibited on this forum as is giving/requesting certain activation information e.g. cracks or keys. As such, we shall not give assistance if the problem is due to bypassed activation.

Sorry guys this is not the thread I was reading to begin with but my question is Im running the trial version of Windows 8.1 Pro Preview build 9431 and I could not get it to activate! From what I read you cant get all the functions of Windows without it being activated! I was in a thread on here that says because its a trial version it doesnt activate! If thats the case then getting the benefit of testing out personalazation and other functions isnt possible! Is there a workaround on this activation problem or is it what you see is what you get! Just wanted to test out any functions I could to get the feel of of the whole OP System before I make a decision on buying a retail version of Pro! I happen to have won a key for a free full retail version of Windows 8 Pro and have dowloaded the ISO is it possible to load it on one of my other computers without activating it so otside of getting online just take it for a test drive ! Im assuming as long as I dont activate it then it wont attach itself to this particular computer! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

A:I could not get it to activate

Hi Bill, Welcome to the forum.

Your cognitive functioning is fine.

Windows 8 Pro Preview evaluation trial period has expired and thus is not recommneded for evaluation - you could still evaluate Windows 8.1 Preview though - as an enterprise version, but it contains all Pro components apart from Media Centre.

Please see here: Try Windows 8.1 Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center

As far as using your key to try Windows 8 , yes if activated it will use up an activation tied to that machine - it may activate on another, either on-line or by phone, but that's not guaranteed.

Good luck.

Here's the deal.
I've installed windows 7 many times on this very same computer, only graphics card and HDDs have changed, multiple times that is.
Everytime it has been activated succesfully with same activation key but this time it just won't, I called the automated phone thing and gave it long series of numbers, then it said that it can't give the code, ok now I got new graphics card since last install (from gtx 260 to 480) but that shouldn't be a reason to decline my activation, even if i changed mobo it should still work with the call.

I don't know what to do expect reinstall later which sound's stupid because it should'nt be problem of my installation.

I've used same custom media that is automated install with same key everytime so it's not possible i've put wrong key and even if i did i tried to retype it.

And i'm not going to buy another windows 7.

What else can I do but to call real person who usually won't do shit.

A:Seven won't activate :<

What version are you attempting to install and where did you get it?

I have had my HP ENVY new in box since 2013 and decided to start it up to replace another PC that was dying.  It started up in WIN 8 (not 8.1) and was soon doing all the updates needed to bring it up to speed. I did not upgrade to WIN 8.1.Before the cutoff for free WIN 10 upgrade I installed the upgrade and all was well until I saw the message that WIN 10 needed to be activated. I had no product key from WIN 8, but used Majical Jellybean Keyfinder to get the key, but WIN 10 would still not activate.  According to Win Support I need to get a key for WIN 8 to activate WIN 10 but the key in the bios was overwritten by a default WIN 10 key overwritten during the upgrade.So is there any way around this so I can activate WIN 10 or is there a way I can get a WIN 8 key to fix this problem?My other alternative is to buy WIN 10 and do a reinstall but I would like to avoid that.Thanks.











Solved!
View Solution.

A:Can't Activate WIN 10

Peter6083 First off, by itselfr,Windows is UNABLE to write to the UEFI firmware where the product key is installed; so, there is no way that a Windows installation would overwrite that key.  You would have to use special firmware-programming code (like that included with BIOS updates) to change the firmware. Second, MagicalJellyBean is unreliable for finding OEM product keys as it tends to report only what it sees in the Registry, and that is not always correct. To find the OEM product key embedded into the UEFI firmware, us this utility: Showkey - Windows 10 ForumsGood Luck

Hi.
I had a copy of windows 8 on one of my pc's. I bought it some time ago digitally when there was an offer to get it as an upgrade for a lower price (i think it was 40$).
Anyway, the pc is died on me and i bought a new hard drive, now, i tried to download the Win 8 assistant in hopes it will ask me for the key (i already did it once) but now it does not offer an activation, only bring me to the checkout.
Right now im using Win 7.
Is there anyway i can re-activate Win 8? i have the key.

Thank you

A:Re-activate Win 8

If you have successfully installed Win 7 on that new hard drive, you can download the Windows 8 upgrade ISO and use your key to reactivate it. Please follow Brink's excellent tutorial here:
