Hi Kate,

This error is caused if you have installed Office using AllUsers parameters or office was removed.

To correct the error, you need to follow the steps below:

·         Insert the installation CD of your Office on the CD or DVD drive;

·         Run the setup.exe file on the CD if it did not run by itself or automatically.

·         Once the setup window pops up, you will then need to cancel and stop the installation.

·         Click on Yes if it asks you if you want to exit the installation.

You do not need to finish the installation. Running the setup exe file will correct the errors.

Hi Kate,

To resolve the problem, start your Setup program for Office. Kindly follow below instructions;

  •     Insert the Microsoft Office 2003 CD in your CD drive or DVD drive.
  •     If the Setup program does not start automatically, locate the Setup.exe file on the CD, and then double-click the file to start Setup.
  •     After the Setup window appears, cancel Setup, and then respond to the prompts to exit Setup.


Note that you do not have to complete the Setup program. Setup fixes the error condition when it is first invoked.

Hope to solve your problem.

Best Regards,
