Window Installer/Office Professional

Q: Window Installer/Office Professional

I have Windows XP and I have Office Professional 2003. I downloaded the Trial 2007 Office Pro from Microsoft's website, but after trying decided I really didn't like it so I uninstalled it. Even before I unistalled when ever I opened a 2003 application the Windows installer would pop up. Now that I have uninstalled 2007, my 2003 won't open, it is like it isn't there (although I went to the control panel and it was there). The Windows Installer pops up no matter what I try to do, even logging on to the internet.

I went into the control panel where you can add and remove programs and 2003 is still there. I tried restoring back to a previous date, but that wouldn't work.

Can anyone tell me how to get the Installer to stop popping up, and how can I get the system to recognize my 2003 Office Software?

Preferred Solution: Window Installer/Office Professional

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

Do you still have the install disks for 2003?

If so remove 2003 & anything to do with it and 2007 and reinstall from the disk.

Hello,

I have a problem installing MS Office Professional 2007.

Here are the details:
1. HP dv4-4141us laptop computer
2. Running Windows 7
3. I bought and downloaded Microsoft Office Professional 2007. Includes Access, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word --- all 2007 versions
4. The software downloaded alright.
5. When I then clicked on MS Office Excel 2007 in "All Programs", it started configuring it.
6. After configuration was done, Setup window popped up, "In order to complete setup, a system reboot is necessary. Would you like to reboot now?"
7. I clicked on Yes, and a window opened up saying: "1 program still needs to close: Waiting for Microsoft Office Professional 2007. This program is preventing Windows from restarting." The options were "Force Restart" or "Cancel".
8. I then clicked on "Cancel" and the following error message popped up:
"Error 1719: The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
9. I then clicked on "OK" and got another message:
"MS Office Excel 2007 has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application."

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Hi - I am working on an MS XP which I bought second hand from a computer fix-it place. The computer came with Office Small Business. Since this computer has Access on it, I ---- in all my infinite questionable wisdom --- decided to teach myself this application. But, the Access wizards require Office 2000 SR-1 Professional. Can you tell me how to get Office Professional? I've been unemployed since February and not looking forward to paying for anything these days -- will it cost me? Do I need to remove Small Business before loading Professional? Should I just forget it and work with whatever I can with Small Business? Thank you for your infinite wisdom.
 

A:I have Office Small Business but need Office Professional

I assume that you are running the 2000 of OSB version on this machine.
Does your machine have the Office 2000 SR 1 installed?

Hello,
When using MS Outlook or firing up IE, the "Windows Installer" window briefly pops up, sometimes flickering (as if multiple closings and openings are occuring), stating "Preparing to install ... ". Then the box goes away.

From what I can tell, nothing has installed.

In MS Outlook, this behavior always occurs when I am opening an email. In IE it only happens when I fire up Internet Explorer.

The only thing that has changed on my system prior to noticing this behavior is that I have installed the most recent versions of BlackBerry Desktop Manager and BlackBerry Device Mananger.

Thank You In Advance

A:Window Installer window briefly pops up

Hi Machine13705

It's possible that the blackberry installations tweaked a Registry setting, or didn't complete their installations elegantly.

I'd probably try the blackberry installation again as a first try. Then try running a Registry Cleaner such as CCleaner (in case loose ends are causing trouble --- http://www.download.com/CCleaner/300...ml?tag=lst-0-1 --- the "Issues" section of CCleaner is the one that helps clear up Registry oddballs).

If that doesn't help, for the Outlook behavior you can try Microsoft's suggested repair (in case it's the tweaked-Office Registry setting --- their quick-fix is a "Language version tool" that you can download and try, and they have two other possible repairs as well) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/265194

And, since you are running Windows XP -- you can always try the System Restore tool, using a restore point from just before you first installed the blackberry updates & the trouble started. You might have to reinstall the blackberry update again after this (but you might not! - it depends on where the settings are that were changed).

Last -- anytime you have unusual behavior from your system, it's a good idea to run some malware scans. Use the "thorough" or "High" settings.

Best of luck

I built this computer Dec 11, and have had consistant installer issues from day one. Installing or removing programs hangs/takes forever or doesn't work at all. I don't get any error messages. It just hangs forever. Sometimes, if I go to bed on it, it will be complete in the morning. On the first Windows OS install, once I got the install probs, I just did another clean install. It didn't change a thing.

Sometimes, thru the past, I've just ignored the errors, and simply tried to get along without some of the programs I've wanted to install. But now, Windows Updates aren't installing either, and the persistant messages and restart prompts are driving me crazy.

Where in the heck do I start? I've run Microsoft's fixit for install errors, No Joy. I've run every diagnostic/fix imaginable, and it still bombs.

Welcome aboard, deadfish86.

► During installation, windows use the RAM for the purpose. If it is getting slow, it might be that your RAMs are not working rightly. Do check your RAM sticks:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run it at lease for 8 passes. Preferably run it overnight, one by one- for all the sticks.

► And, see if resetting windows update solves your update issue or not.

Windows XP 32-bit will recognize and use a maximum of about 3.25 GB of RAM.

Windows XP 64-bit will recognize and use more than 4 GB of RAM.

Unless you plan to install it in a computer that has and needs more than 4 GB of RAM, use the 32-bit version.

You may also run into a problem with installing and using certain programs with the 64-bit version.

I am at work and my question is for the computer at home. I have reformat my harddrive and try to install win. xp professional on the computer. Turn on the computer and i am in dos mode. I put in the win. xp professional disk in the cd rom to install. The computer then goes installing, it starts by going to the xp setup screen, ask a few questions like Fats 32 and copywrite agreements and such. It would not go into the actual installation of the xp installation program where it would ask for a disk code. After the xp setup program, it then ask to restart my computer, which i did. After the restart it would ask to "press a key for cd-rom boot" and i did, then it would go into the xp setup screen again and the whole xp setup process would starts over again and then it would ask to be reboot again. Now during the beginning of restarting the computer, if i didn't press a key at that point of time when it was asking "press any key to boot from cd-rom", then it would give me this promt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart". I then would press a key but it would not restart but the same prompt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart" would appear again. I cannot do anyting at this point and have to mannually turn off the computer. I don't know what to do now?

Please help

A:need help in installing window xp professional

NTLDR is missing press any key to restart, your getting this error because there is a cd in the drive and it's looking for NTLDR file, which appears not to be on it. (strange)

go to www.bootdisk.com and download the six floppies for xp. Put the first one in your puter, and restart, run through all six, and then continue the set up process with the cd.

you said you reformatted the hard drive? I believe you have to set the partition first, then format. XP should do this for you, try the boot disks, and let us know if it works.

This is my 1st post. After spending 4 hours researching an issue online I've decided that this is the place to get real and relevant answers. Rather than tack onto very old threads, I thought I'd start a new one as I have one specific problem. I'm running MS Office XP Pro, which is quite sufficient for my needs, and I use Word every day. I'm the only user so my PC has a simple set-up. In Documents (Public) I keep folders of photos. If I want to email a folder of photos to someone, I compress the folder and attach it as a zip file to an email. I have triple-checked the settings in Properties and nothing is locked/encrypted/restricted. Yet the recipient can't gain access to the downloaded zip file. Is this likely to be a compatibility issue at my end or the recipient's end? Or could it be a security software issue? I don't want to switch to using Open Office or whatever it's called.

My computer knowledge is very basic. A couple of years ago I moved from much-loved Windows XP to Windows 7 Home Premium and am now fairly comfortable with it. I'm self-taught and learn through experience - mostly by way of trial and error!

I would greatly appreciate any genuine advice.

A:Compatibility with MS Office XP Professional

You won't like this advice but you really need to get off XP and upgrade to a newer OS. XP hasn't been supported since early last year and is now subject to virus and other malware infections. You can still buy OEM copies of Win 7 Home Premium or Win 7 Pro if you look around a little (here in the U.S., Newegg still sells them); that is the one most likely to be compatible with your system.

Also, what version (year) of MS Office Pro are you using?

Hello all - Unwittingly, I installed Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 on a computer that alread had Office 97 including Outlook Express. I know now that I should have removed the old before installing the new because every time I start Word 2007, I get a message that says: Please wait while set-up prepares the necessary files. Then comes a screeen with a progress bar that says: Configuration Process - Configuring Microsoft Office Professional 2007. This configuration takes an average of 3 minutes and then it's ready. The other components of 2007 like Excel, Publisher, Power Point, Outlook, etc.all start instantly. I know that I have to delete office 97 which in turn will adversely affect Office 2007 so I will then have to delete it as well and reinstall it. My question is, how do I keep from losing my contacts and address book in Outlook while both suites are off the computer and until I can reinstall Office 2007 by itself? Am I overlooking doing anything else to be proactive in advance to accomplishing what needs to be done? Thanks!

Whats your OS? When you go to "Add/Remove Programs" does it list both Word 97 and 2007? Before removing anything make sure all data is backed up. Look in the programs files for your data, I am not to sure where 97 hids the files.

I think I already know the answer to this but I will ask to be sure. I just obtained Office 2003 directly from Microsoft through their Partnership Program. I installed it on one of my test machines at home. I totally forgot about it needing to be activated. The main question is this. If I activate it on that machine...I will not be able to put it on my main computer right?? Basically I have heard that when you activate it, thats it, you can not put it on any other machine.

Thank for your time,

DWF_72
 

A:Office 2003 Professional

Basically correct.

Most "full versions" allow activation on the one PC, and will usually allow a second activation on another PC on the basis that you can have it on a portable (laptop) as well, on the understanding that they are not used at the same time. Read the EULA for your version.

There is no checking that the second activation is actually on a laptop and not a desktop though. So basically a full version should allow 2 activations.

There is a suggestion that the MS activation database is reset after about 4 months and a further activation could be made but that is not documented or proven.

Microsoft Office XP Professional. Then it gives me a error message: "Error 1706" Setup cannot find the required files. Check your connection to the network, or CD-Rom drive.
For other potential solutions to this problem, see D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10\1033\SETUP.HLP.

Also, it gives me this message; The file is not a valid installation package for the product Microsoft Office XP Professional. Try to find the installation package "PRO.MSI" in a folder from which you can install Microsoft Office XP Professional.

It just stared doing this today. Each time I try to access any of my files in " Word, Excel or PowerPoint ".

Has your Computer downloaded a Microsoft "Update"?
Have you tried "rolling back" your computer to a previous "Restore" point to see if that fixes the problem?
Have you tried "Repairing" or Reinstalling Office?

I am sorting out a PC and software for a UK Registered Charity. They need Access so it means a professional version of Office. I am looking to save money where I can as it is a charity and have been offered the following:

Bit worried about the term "Dummy licence"!
Would disclose the company who are offering this via a PM if required.
Can anyone advise me on this please?

You will only need a full version of Access is you will need to edit/create forma, reports, etc. You can use the free Access runtime to "run" Access applications and enter data.

The only PC/Workstation that needs a Full version of Access is the one doing development for the application.

I have many users that run my Access applications with just the free Access runtime.

Can you double check that message?
Are you sure it does not actually say "Office update is unable to check for updates" ?
There is a big difference between the two.

On the chance that you have mis-read the message, check the link below

Since 1997 i have been writing and using the Euphoria Programing Language with first Windows XL and later Windows 7 Premium desktops.

i now have moved to situation where I have no room for a desktop.

So bought a Windows 7 Professional laptop.

A lot of my Euphoria programs don't work. Especially those using the system() and Xcopy commands.

I no longer have access to my desktop.

Hello Everyone

I was in a similar situation. I had "Windows 7 Home Prem OA HP" on a HP desktop I bought new and then upgraded the system to Ultimate with an Upgrade key. But now that I bought a refurb desktop with no OS (with a COA for "Windows Vista Business OEMAc") I needed to use that Ultimate license on the "new" refurb desktop. So my "downgrade ultimate to home premium" search brought me here, amongst other places.

I used a registry solution explained here and in several other places, but I made the changes manually and without the use of a popular tool from a website called deviantart. I figured I was better off hacking the puter manually myself. I did however used it this way (notice upper & lower case matching the "Ultimate" entry format):

HKLM\Software\Microsot\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
EditionID "Ultimate" changed to "HomePremium"
ProductName "Windows 7 Ultimate" changed to "Windows 7 HomePremium"

For reference, I also used the following posting on tomshardware (Downgrading Win7 Pro to Home Premium - Downgrade - Windows 7), specially the response by aquasystems. I would've added this reply there but the thread was closed.

Then, I needed to do an "in-place repair upgrade." I tried using the wi... Read more

I just upgraded from w/98 1st edition to w/2000 professional. When the computer reboots and gets to the logon I enter the password and it says saving system settings, then goes back to the logon screen. I enter the password again and same thing, it just continues looping through this. I'm sure I'm using the right password cause when I enter the wrong one it says check username and password. When I enter the right password it just starts the loop again. I could really use some help on this please. Thanks
