Activation for Office 2003 Professional Edition Fails
Posted on 2014-01-22
I am working on a computer that was so slow and infested with viruses that I backed it up and then wiped it out. It had Vista on it and I used the Dell Restore disk that came with it.
I then reinstalled office 2003 professional edition using a cd that I had, as the client didn't have one. I ran BelArc and got the keycode for it.
When I ran the setup and then entered her keycode from the BelArc report it said it was not a valid keycode.
I then entered the one that was on my cd and the install went fine.
when it was finished, I rebooted and then opened Word. It prompted me to use the activation wizard and I selected via internet. It failed due to having used the limit for the product key. I then selected 'I want to activate the software by telephone and selected United States, it then displayed a message indicating that 'Telephone activation is no longer supported for this product.
How can I activate this product? Do I have to find another version of MS Office 2003 and use their keycode? It is the same PC, that the license was use on prior.
thanks in advance for all responses.
