Error 25090 when opening Microsoft office

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Here is the problem. I tried to install Microsoft Office 2003 in my Windows XP computer. There was no error message when I tried to install it, but when I ran the program, a pop up message saying "Error 25090" appeared.

I tried to search it on the internet but nothing works. Tried re-installing it and also upgrade my Service Pack from 2 to Service Pack 3.

Is this an issue with Office 2003 and XP? It works in my laptop running Windows Vista.
