Is there a way to do this, or to trick it into thinking it is activated? I got a old Visio disk here that says it has been activated the max amount of times (because I installed it on my old machice and my old laptop). If this post breaks the rules then you can lock it.

It's call Anti-MSOPA 1.7

Quote:
Anti Product Activation Patch 1.7 for Office 2003 & XP
======================================================

Disables the product activation of Office 2003 & XP
and any other related products like Visio, FrontPage
MS Project or Visual Studio.Net which uses mso.dll


>http:\\antiwpa12.tk< cw2k@gmx.de
--------------------------------------------------

>Will it work for my version of Office?

Try it and you will see.
(Backup your mso.dll manually if you're afraid something can go wrong)

The patch scans for byte pattern and don't uses fix offset, like
some other cracks which only support one specific version.
For that it will support a wide range of versions, hopefully also coming
versions.



>The main patch windows popped up twice is this a bug?

That's completely normal if you have also Office XP or any
other component installed that uses Office10.
The first time Office11\mso.dll (Office 2003) is patched and
the second time Office10\mso.dll (Office XP).



>The about doesn't display my ProductID?

Restore the patch manually (mso.bak -> mso.dll)
reapply the patch and click 'Yes' - skip PID-patch.


>What files modified by the patch?

It modifies these 2 files:
[programs]\common files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE11\mso.dll
[programs]\common files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE10\mso.dll
and backup the original in the same dir as mso.bak.
Nothing else is changed.


>I get: "Can't open mso.dll for read/write access"

Quit any running office applications
or delete/move mso.bak.


>I extracted Anti-MSOPA.exe and applied it the mso.dll of Office 2003 and
now Office 2003 crashes.

The mso.dll of Office 2003 is CRC-protected - if this self checks fail
mso.dll will crash without any warning.
The task of Anti-MSOPA-Prepatch.exe is to disable these self checks.
(For mso.dll of Office XP Anti-MSOPA-Prepatch.exe it's not absolutely necessary)

>Patch didn't work / had no effect / Office crashes ...
To ensure that's because of the patch
Restore mso.dll and check if Office works.
Apply the patch (watch out for errormessage of the patcher).
If the error is still there look if there's an update
on http:\\antiwpa3.tk.
Post the error in the forum. Please include details like your
OS, anti-msopa version, version of mso.dll, when the crash did occurs...


>I'm wondering if I can somehow edit the files on the install cd so that it will patch it automaticly or just install a patched version?
1.Extract O1561412.CAB to some
2.Patch mso.dll
3. Repack file via makecab.exe(windows\system32)
Place this
MAKECAB.ddf in the upper Dir
; DIAMOND directive file
.OPTION EXPLICIT ; Generate errors on variable typos
.Set CabinetNameTemplate=mycab.CAB

;** The files specified below are stored, compressed, in cabinet files
.Set Cabinet=on
.Set Compress=on
.Set CompressionType=LZX
.Set CompressionMemory=21
.Set MaxDiskSize=2147483136


and complete it by adding a filelist via
"dir /b >>..\makecab.ddf" <- run this from inside extractiondir
Now create the cab by running
makecab /f ..\makecab.ddf

Don't use winace to repack because it will not retain order of file (always sorts them by name)


Some notes:
* keep in mind that you may need to restore the original mso.dll if you install
servicepack
* I tested the patch only for Office2003
* yes the cracked mso.dll can be somehow integrated into the office-setup files
and edit your autorun.inf like this, so you needn't enter the PID anymore
[autorun]
OPEN=SETUP.EXE /AUTORUN PIDKEY=GWH28DGCMPP6RC46J4MT3HFDY
* to reset the 30-days-counter delete
[Docs&cfg]\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\Microsoft\Office\DATA\*.dat
* The CDKEY is store in registry under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration\{90110407-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}
[DigitalProductID] at Offset 35 and is 10 byte long
(simply as binary number to the base 24 over "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789")
you can export this setting to recover it on another PC.
you can use my DPCDLL-LicViewer or any other CDKEY-viewer even one which is for
Windows, since it's in the same format
* There are special cooperated of Office which don't required activation.
Mostly they have a PID with '...-640-...'.
You can also identify them by the GUID of [Office2k3]\FILES\SETUP\SETUP.INI
ProductCode= {90110407-....
9 Release to manufacturing.
0 Enterprise
11 Microsoft Office Professional Enterprise Edition 2003
0407 German
Value Edition:0 Enterprise
1 Retail/OEM
2 Trial
A very important rolled (beside your CDKEY) play ID_011.DPC which contains
the product code (90110407)it is only valid for a list of allowed GUID's
and a list with valid cooperated PID ranges (so it needn't to be
always -640-). SKU011.XML is also used somehow...


History:
1.7 BugFix Office2k3 SP3 MsoFGimmeProductID(Change 'Ret 4' to 'Ret 0') caused
a crash when sending a mail with Outlook and
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration\ settings are missing

1.6 BugFix Office2k3 SP3 (Patch 1 - 'delayed PA-call'-> FAILED !)
Removed exe-packer from 'Anti-MSOPA.exe' because it tiggers AV-Alerts

1.5 'Type mismatch error' fixed when local windows timeformat setting is like "2:55 pm"
1.4 Whoops somehow SaveFunctionPatch patch was comment out when I compiled the patch <-*fixed*

1.3 More general SaveFunctionPatch patch - so it will work also for
'Office 2003 - student & teacher edition'

1.2 Added SaveFunctionPatch to fix a crash when you save a VS.Net-Project
Already applied dectection for MsoFGimmeProductID to avoid corruptions when run
twice

1.1 Patch pattern for 'delayed PA-call' was not found on some OfficeXP versions
Office XP crashed because self checks in mso.dll were not disabled
Confusing error message corrected

1.0.1 Bugfix: The current mso.dll may get overwrites by a mso.bak of an earlier version

1.0 Initial Release

Das kommt sicher nicht so oft vor - aber ist auch möglich
Der Anti-MSOPA.exe ist eine Winrar-SFX Exe.
1. Anti-MSOPA.exe in Winrar öffnen und entpacken
(2. mso.dll auch in das Verzeichnis kopieren)
3. Anti-MSOPA-Prepatch.exe mso.dll (oder Antiwpa2 ->mso.dll) starten
4. Anti-MSOPA.exe starten um mso.dll zu patchen

Da der Patch zwei mso.dll patched falls Office10(XP) & Office11(2k3) installiert sind würde ist es sicher wenn es das automatisch geht und
der DAU-User nicht mit openfile dialog boxen verunsichert wird bzw.
Verwirrung stiften kann.
Der 'Admin' (der sich etwas mehr auskennt) wird die etwas flexiblere
Oben beschriebene Version zu schätzen wissen.

Möglicherweise hat eine Windowsupdate die gepätchte MSO.dll durch eine Neuere ersetzt.

Lade von http://antiwpa11.tk/ Anti-MSOPA_1-6 runter und wende den Patch erneut an.

Wenn das nicht hilft
löschen oder besser benenne folgende Dateien um (z.b. nach OUT_SKU151.XML)
...\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\1033\151\SKU151.XML
...\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\1033\151\ID_151.DPC
Bzw such nach *.dpc bzw sku*.xml Dateien im office verzeichnis und benenne diese um.

Und in Regedit (Start\Ausführen\REGEDIT.EXE)
HKey_LocalMachime\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration\
Umbenennen nach z.b. 'Registration-' umbenennen

Wenn's geht bitte mal schreiben was du gemacht hast dann schreib ich
Das gleich für alle in der readme dazu.

Wenn's geht mach den letzten Schritt rückgängig z.b. 'Registration-' nach 'Registration' zurück umbenennen und test ob es dann nicht mehr oder immer noch geht um so herauszufinden, welche Schritte wirklich notwendig sind und welche nicht.

"So wenig wie möglich aber soviel als nötig."

<CW2K>


I cannot post direct like because that would violate the rules.

If it's a legit copy you should just be able to call MS to get it activated again.

Do you not have an option in the activation wizard to call them, when the online activation fails?

So.. phone it? They won't tell you off you know. It will probably be an automated thing and that's it. If it won't activate, you then get referred to Customer Services and if you explain I reinstalled Office, and is now requiring me to do this that and la, then you should get it activated.

Not that hard

There is activation in office 2003? I have an old pirated CD, i know im bad but i cant see paying so much for office, and ive used it on many computers/laptops. Not once has it asked me to activate it, maybe activation was taken out of this pirated version? It lets me upgrade the install to SP3 no problem.

This will most likely be the volume license edition as they don't need activation.
