Unable to activate publisher

Post by Skc » Wed, 06 Jul 2005 17:18:03


I am unable to activate my Publisher as when I attempt to this via that
Internet,
the Internet Explorer stops because it runs a scrip error and does not
produce any boxes to fill in the program information.
When I click the box to activate by phone, It does not give me a phone
number to ring.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated before all my lives run out !!

In Internet Explorer, tools, Internet Options, tools, Advanced tab, check "Disable
Script Debugging (Internet Explorer)", check "Disable Script De *** (other)", clear
"Display a notification about every script error."

There should be a phone number on the activation page.

JG < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > was very recently heard to utter:

Did you select a country? You won't get a phone number unless you select a
country.

It sounds like your Internet Explorer engine is having problems with active
scripting. You might try searching your computer for spyware or asking for
some help in the Internet Explorer newsgroups.

Are you having trouble viewing websites with Internet Explorer?

Thanks, I did select a country with no success, I'll try the answer posted by
Sue later and see if that works...

I have changed the settings as you suggest, but have had no success, and,
although I choose a country properly, a phone number does not appear for me
to ring to complete the activation. Do you have any further suggestions
please ?

I chose UK and no number appeared, I then tried several others including US
and did not receive a number in any country that I chose

Since this is an installation related issue, you can call Microsoft
Publisher support and not be charged a fee. Installation support is free of
charge.

You didn't say which version of Publisher so I assumed 2003, without the
digital editing. I don't know if that makes a difference.

Thanks Brian, I've looked at the Web site for a number here in the UK but it
seems difficult to find.
Which number do you suggest I try....

thanks again.

I have a Windows 2003 Terminal Server - Office 2003 Professional.
Word, excel, powerpoint work fine. Publisher closes when trying to
create a new file. I have determined that the problem is that it is
not "activated" This is not a trial version and was a clean
install.


When I try to activate under "help". I get a "feature in not
available" hit ok and the program closes. Does anyone have any
clue on getting this activated so we can use the program?
