Xp updating activation
But because Office said, once it was setup, that it was already activated, I haven't been able to open the Activation Wizard.
And the Windows Updates page has provided no more than 19 downloads for Office, including the Office XP Service Pack III.
Other than actually opening the Activation Wizard (which I cannot do), how else can I find the MS number for activating via phone? It worked for me after I ripped my hair out when updating stopped working for me one day after YEARS of using Office update.
It is an easy fix to the "trying to update Office XP activation problem" using genuine software for Office XP when you keep getting an error saying your software is NOT activated, even though you DID activate it.
Since I recently reinstalled Office XP Pro on my desktop, I haven\u0027t been able to access its updates because Office says that I\u0027ve activated it, while the update window says that it must first be activated.
IOW, Office says that I\u0027ve properly activated it but its update window says that I haven\u0027t.
Thanks, David If it's some OEM version then all this is proper. Every once in awhile we run into this and the poor owner gets a lesson about OEM or copies that came with their PC.
