Did Microsoft actually stop supporting this tool, or something wrong with my computer?

There's nothing wrong with your OS (which is Genuine and remains Activated) nor with your computer.

No. MS didn't stop supporting it, not there is any newer version around (the latest remains v. 1.9.42.0).
Someone at MS blorked something **again**. Rest assured they'll fix it.

Last time it happened is the subject of this thread: Microsoft downloads validation failure All versions of GenuineCheck.exe started again to give the message: "This version of the Windows Genuine Advantage validation tool is no longer supported." I noticed it just today, but from a rapid Google search I see it had began already on Aug 23... This time around IE is still working, but "use IE instead" is no real solution, just a temporary stopgap: GenuineCheck.exe exists precisely to allow people to choose freely which browser they wish to use.

On running GenuineCheck.exe, one gets the message: "This version of the Windows Genuine Advantage validation tool is no longer supported."

Phew. I guess I'll just have to use IE until MS get their a** in gear then.

Ran into the same problem when it wouldn't load properly from Windows Update and I tried to use GenuineCheck to get validated.

ATM, IE is the only way to get the updates/hotfixes requiring validation. MS will sure eventually fix it again, but nobody knows when... :}

While M$ fix their crappy system, I found out how to bypass validation.

 

Replace the original link like following:
