WGA Changes and Updates

There have been a few changes announced on the WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) Blog. Both the Windows Validation Assistant and the Office Validation Assistant have been replaced with the the Windows Comparison Guide (WCG) and the Office Comparison Guide (OCG). The primary difference is the WCG and OCG do not have the the web-based validation. The web-based validation is now located at http://www.microsoft.com/genuine.

With piracy being very costly to companies, and the unsuspecting victim as well, Microsoft has updated and added substantial information to the "How to Tell" site. There are around 600 products covered, including illustrations of the physical anti-piracy features released with Microsoft products.

Remember the questions that arose about the hologram on the Windows Vista DVD? What if you don't see the hologram? Go to the "How to Tell" site linked below. There are also samples of recent counterfeits for comparison.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
