Howdy Charlie,

Runtime error 1308 is very common of Windows users. I have encountered that many times.  You should realize the concept of the error 1308 to be able to distinguish the cause or causes of the error.  I got this error because I found out that there was a DLL files missing on my computer. You can use the methods below to be able to solve your issue:

  • You should reregister the registry list of the DLL files
  • Click start > run > type in regsvr32 C:WindowsSystem32DLLFile
  • Restart your computer for changes to take effect

In case you can't find the files on your computer, you can download and locate it from the internet. Visit the link below for mre information on how to fix Runtime error 1208:

I understand you get an error 1308 when launching Microsoft Office components.

It seems that there is only a radical solution to your problem. You have to uninstall the Office suite and then reinstall it. Please try to turn off your antivirus program while reinstalling.

This problem normally happens when you try to install a program using an internet source location. This error is triggered because of a bug in Windows Installer and usually happens when you are using Microsoft Windows XP. Apart from the files in the IsolatedComponents table of the MSI installation file (.msi), installing from an internet source location should work as expected.

If you are using Windows XP, you need to update to the latest Service Pack to fix the problem. Support for Microsoft Windows XP has already ended on April 8, 2014 and Microsoft stopped releasing any future updates for this operating system. The latest and last Service Pack update for Windows XP is Service Pack 3.

To update your Windows XP, download and install Windows XP Service Pack 3. Also, try reinstalling the entire Microsoft Office suite if installing the latest Service Pack didn’t fix the problem. Make sure the version of Microsoft Office you are installing is compatible with your system. Check the system requirements before installing the package.
