    If this is about trying to create a working MAK for Office, you can just stop and save yourself the headache.
    They catalog every successful activation and it's absurdly lengthy to brute-force a successful key.
    Even if you managed to do it, which is unlikely, you'd be stealing an activation from a company's legit key, which is something that we would never help you with.

    Thank you very much. I'm collector,not creator. I've only been bothered by that error. I've deleted the two keys from VAMT and all works fine.

    There is one fascinating thing in that closed thread that I've stumbled upon, and it's in post no. #151 under Type 5). It says "Ratiborus KeyCheck Generated key", so it shouldn't work, right? But this very key DOES work, as you can easily check on various MAK key sites on the net and also by phone-activating with this key... So what's the explanation?

    It's not impossible only highly unlikely, would be the first if could be proved. Still means that you steal someones key, as this only works if that key is registered on MS Key Servers :cool2:.

    For that speculations and BS the old thread got closed :g:.
