I'd suggest trying a fresh install of Office XP. Remove all the components then try installing it again.

Hmmmm.... Would this happen to be a legal copy of OfficeXP??

They're starting to crack down on pirating and have found some rather ingenious ways to block it.

It's hard to believe that this is a valid CD key you have. If it were, i'd doubt it would give you this much trouble. Are you sure it's not a key for another M$ application?

As you have said, the key might not be for the specific version you have... if so, you should contact M$ and explain to them your situation.
