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=2 0installation 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 2007 activation, you need a key generator that provides volume license 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):

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 agai n. 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:

The following steps involve modification of registry key values, which may corrupt your Windows if done incorrectly. Backup registry first before performing the workaround.

1. Close all Microsoft Office programs.
2. Click on Start button, then click on Run.
3. Type "regedit" (without quotes) in the Run text box, and click OK or press E nter.
4. Locate and then click the following subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration

Inside, you will find another subkey that resembles the following subkey:

5. Optional: Backup this registry branch by exporting the Registration subkey to a file, just in case the new product key does not work and you have to restore back the old product key. To export the registry, right click on the Registration subkey and click on Export, and follow the on-screen prompt to enter a file name for the registry file and choose a location to store it.
6. Under the Registration subkey, there may be several Globally Uni que Identifiers (GUID) subkey that contain a combination of alphanumeric characters. Each GUID is specific to a program that is installed on your computer.

If you find additional subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, then click and open each GUID subkey to view and identify the Office product version by the ProductName registry entry in the right pane. For example:

ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
7. After you find the GUID subkey that contains your Office product or program which you want to remove the existing product license key or registration details, delete the following registry entries by right clicking on the registry entry in the GUID subkey, click Delete, and then click Yes:
< br> • DigitalProductID
• ProductID
8. Exit Registry Editor.
9. Run or open an Office application program, such as Microsoft Word or Excel or Outlook. Office 2007 will prompt you to enter a new 25-character product key.
10. Type in the valid and genuine product key, and then click OK.
11. Then when prompted to choose your preferred type of Microsoft Office 2007 installation, press on "Install Now".
12. Microsoft Office 2007 will be updated with new product CD key or volume license key, and ready for activation (if it's a non-VLK serial) or use.

Note: If you're having problem with your new Office 2007 product key, simply double click on the backup registry .reg file c reated at the optional step above to restore the registry settings of the Registration subkey so that the original value can be imported back to the registry.

To make Office 2007 and Office 2007 genuiune again download:

That's it! Now all downloads will work.

If you use the Office 2007 Blue Edition you will have to change the Product Key (read above) and use this KG:
