I found that error message is not real. The product hadn’t really expired. To cut a long story short it comes down to a DCOM permissions bug. To fix it I had to add my MOSS Web Application IIS Application Pool account to the local BUILTIN\Administrators user group and then it all worked just fine. In my case it was Network Service so I add this bultin account to the local Administrators group of the server. and after that the error didn’t appear more.

UPDATE 12/29/2010

Once again 2 days ago I encountered this issue! I checked every thing like application pool identity accounts or regedit keys and everything was ok. so what was the problem. finally I found this post.

When you install the 2007 Microsoft Office servers Service Pack 2 package, the product expiration date is activated incorrectly. As a result, the product will expire 180 days after Service Pack 2 is deployed. To resolve this issue, install one of the following updates. These updates are available from the Microsoft Download Center.

Note One of these updates must be deployed on all SharePoint servers that are part of a SharePoint Server Farm.

Update for 2007 Microsoft Office servers (KB971620), 32-Bit Edition

Download the Update for 2007 Microsoft Office servers (KB971620), 32-Bit Edition package now.

Update for 2007 Microsoft Office servers (KB971620), 64-Bit Edition

Download the Update for 2007 Microsoft Office servers (KB971620), 64-Bit Edition package now.

After you install one of these updates, you do not have to redeploy the service pack. Good Luck ! 🙂
