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.)

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

I'm at a loss at this point.

Hi all

I am using Windows XP and office 2003. I am using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to view tif files.

PROBLEM:

1. I open a tif file.
2. I make an annotation change eg: Use the hightlighting tool to hightlight some text. Fine, no problem!
3. I save the document.
4. I close the document and try reopening it:

I get this error:

"The file selected is not a valid Microsoft Document Imaging file"



I recreated my Windows XP profile and this resolved the problem

That was two weeks ago........now the problem is back!

Any ideas?

Several months ago, I downloaded the beta version of Office 2007. I decided to remove it and go back to Office 2003. Ever since, I can no longer access Outlook 2003 and I am using the 2002 version. The other Office 2003 functions I am able to use. Also, I am unable to install Office Updates because when I do, Outlook 2002 and Word 2003 lose some functionality and I have to restore.

All suggestions are welcome.

For those still using Legacy Office (97-2003) on Windows 7, any time you try to activate the animated Office Assistant, you receive a message that "The Office Assistant Requires Microsoft Agent 2.0 or better. The product is available in the Office System Pack." Read the following before installing:

1.) MS removed the MS Agent, which controls the Office Assistant on Windows 7 and above. The Hot Fix below, is contained in a zip file which restores the Office Assistant functionality to legacy Office users on Windows 7. The following link below will show you how to download the instructions to get the Hot Fix back. Note, if you are running Windows XP or below, you already have this installed and need not run it. See the separate Help documentation in MS Office, if your Office Assistant fails to appear in Windows XP or below.

2.) Furthermore, this fix is for Windows 7 only! Not Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or the Windows 10 Preview. You also will need to make sure you know the correct version of Windows 7 on your computer For example 32 or 64 bit. MS should sense the version of Windows 7 you are running, when they email you the instructions for downloading the Hotfix.

3.) The instructions say that this Fix only restores Merlin the Wizard, but it gave me "Clippy" which is the default Office 97-2003 animation.

Hello,

I am running Office 2003 on Windows 7. My PC is only 6 months old and everything has been running like butter. All of a sudden Office files open slowly when double-clicked from their respective locations (they would normally blink up). If I open Word or Excel and then open the files from there, they open quick. Outlook on the other hand, is just slow to load up...which it wasn't before.

I did a ton of research online and couldn't get a clear fix. My thoughts are:
Anti Virus? (I'm using AVG Free)
Ad-Aware Free? (Ad-Watch live is on...however it was on before)
Windows update or office update?

But obviously I'm here to get your thoughts. It's a pain in the ass when I bought a new PC so it could perform quick, and now spreadsheets and email take 20 seconds or more to open.

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.

We have a wierd problem on my daughter's computer. I thought it was part of another issue but it isn't.

When we open the font list in Word 2003, many of the font names are blank spots. Some of the fonts are usable and some are not but you don't know what the fonts are until after you click on them.

The fonts are both common and unusual fonts. Between Arial and Bookshelf Symbol 7, there are 17 blank spots including the rest of the Arial family, Berlin, Bodoni and others. This is only an issue in Word. They are visible in WordPad and in WordPerfect.

The computer had Win XP Home. I loaded up the complete program of Office 2003 in case the problem was a missing file in the typical set up. I cannot figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. I cannot find anyone through the search engines with a similar problem.

It is very frustrating when there are so many missing spots.

Thanks, Mary

A bit of background for my issue/question:

In order to sync my Windows Mobile phone to my computer I have to have Microsoft Outlook installed. However, my version is Office 2000. I cannot use Virtual XP on this particular computer (it's just a netbook) to use Office 2000 that way, but I did try that on my other computer, which runs Virtual XP beautifully. Unfortunately, it would not allow the syncing of the phone via the Virtual Machine. The more research I do on this issue, it seems Office 2000 is not really compatible with Win7, thus why I tried the Virtual XP thing in the first place.

So, my actual question is:

Does anyone have experience with Office 2003 and Win7? Are there issues running that? I'm sure Office 2007 is recommended, but I'm just looking for any insight anyone might have to offer from your own personal experience with running Office 2003 and Windows 7.

Hi

I have a number of problems with office 2003 installed on windows 7:

1. The worst issue is that when i left click on an image to select it the image 'jumps' from its original posistion by a small amount and then i need to control Z to move it back.

2. Also i noted that when you immediately right click on the image i get the 'move here / copy here / cancel context menu rather than the normal menu with copy/cut paste etc (im not at work but im pretty sure this is not the case on XP and 2003).

3. When i copy an image from one slide to another its position in the new slide is not the same as in the old one (i.e. it moves relative to for example the images in the slide master) when i do this under XP and 2003 this has never been a problem

4. Finally when in editing mode every time an image is moved or you move to the next slide the screen update of all the images is very slow (compared to my much older XP computer at work).

Please note these problems also seem to occur with the 32 bit version of windows 7 (but not XP) and i have fully updated both office (SP3) and windows 7.

Can anyone help with any of these issues? I think in the end i will need to upgrade office 2007 but at the moment i have an urgent prsentation i have to complete so any help would be much appreciated.

A:office 2003 and windows 7 64 bit problems

First of all, yes you will need to upgrade eventually, but you might want to skip over 2007 and just get 2010 (which is much better).

It would seem that all of your problems are related to working with images. Just to be sure, do you have these problems no matter what image you try to work with?

At least the first two problems seem to be caused by Office reading a click-and-drag instead of just a click. Are you using a different mouse than you did/do on XP?

What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

 When you switch between an Office 2010 program and an older Office program, it goes through that configuring process.  I read somewhere that this is because each version of Office has entries in the registry with the same names but are set differently so it has to go through this little gooney bird dance.  If it's the ribbons (and lack of the menu bar) you don't like in Office 2010, there's a neat little program called Ubitmenu you can download and install that gives you an old style menu bar with most of the Office 2003 features on it.
 
Good luck.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

Is anyone aware of any guides, books, online documentation, etc which can help users to migrate?? If not, I'm going to be sending off these cds to the Salvation Army.

Hi animorph,
Yes, the changes are extensive. But Microsoft does have helpful interactive guides that let you choose a function in 2003 and find it in 2007. I hope these help.

Outlook
Word
Excel
Access

On my laptop I was running MS Office 2003 Professional. I decided to upgrade to MS Office 2007 Professional. I thought my CD and key were legitimate. After installing, I found I couldn't activate the software. The new installation apparently wiped out the MS Office 2003.

Is there anyway for me to return to my MS Office 2003? I'm using a Dell and tried to return to a previous setpoint, but that didn't work, something about a patch missing.

Any ideas?

Hi all.
Is it possible to run MS Office 2003 and MS office 2007 on the same machine.
I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.
So is it possible to have both versions running on the same machine?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

Hello
I currently have Office 2003 Student full version installed on my computer. I have received Office Professional Plus 2007 Student media version. Do I need to uninstall Version 2003 prior to installing 2007 or will installation of version 2007 automatically uninstall version 2003. Does all the information in my .pst file convert as necessary for use in Outlook 2007. There are two discs, one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" and the other one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 (Microsoft Office Communicator 2007". I'm guessing that the disk with the shorter title "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" would be the correct one to install. What is the second disk with Communicator? My system is Windows XP SP2, AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor, 3800+ 1.99 Ghz 2GB Ram.
Thanks

This isn't an upgrade. I bought the full version Office Professional 2003 and would like to install it over what I have now. I had Office 97 and an upgrade CD to Office 2000. Will I lose anything to install Office 2003 over Office 2000? I have WinXP home if that makes a difference.

Good Day TSG members

Just would like to do a bit of sharing about upgrading of office 2000/97 - 2003

Currently I am doing an office upgrade for my company and these are some of the problems i encountered. Taking this chance to ask for advises as well.

1. Several office documents (Word, Excel,Powerpoint) images turn upside down when opened in office 2003. I have tried searching for solutions to this problems. However, the closest information i found in in this microsoft white paper regarding office XP
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;822228

2. Many of my users who migrated from outlook 2000 to outlook 2003 experinced numerous incidents where their email appears blank when it is being sent out to the clients.
The only information i found regarding this is from the microsoft website

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;833986&Product=out2003

I have yet to find a solution to this problem as this hotfix came with a price.

3. The Microsoft Photo editor is taken away in office 2003 and now the users can no longer edit pictures, this is a big problems as most of my users find this software useful in simple graphic editing.

I tried to reinstall the feature from the office 2000 cd... it does work, however, the users can no longer print from the photo editor as it keeps crashing when the print command is issued

4. The photo editor is now replaced by a microsoft picture manager which allows the user to see the graphic file. Howev... Read more

I've an almost new machine that I've installed Office 2007 Home & Student. On my previous machine I had Office 2000 premium installed. Since Home & Student is just Excel and Word I was wondering if I can install Access and Outlook from my old Office 2000 CDs to compliment my Home&Student? I rarely use access and would use outlook only for the calendar so this is low priority for me and I don't want to chance screwing up my Office 2007 for something I'd only use a few times a year unless I've some assurances that it would work. Does anyone have experience doing this or something similar?

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.

Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it. Now, I just uninstalled an Office '07 trial. The same thing is happening again, but now when I hit cancel, it says "fatal error during installation." It's a different error message from the one I got last time.

I really need help here. I've got homework due tomorrow for some online classes, and need Word to do it.

I tried going into control panel > Add/Remove Programs > Office '03 and clicking change to do the repair thing, but it led to the same problem.

Thanks in advance. If you need any more information to help, please let me know. I can't open any Office items. This Windows Installe... Read more

I have Office 2007 and it seems to me that most tasks require an extra click. Let me explain. In Office 2007 if I want to print I have to click on the office button on the top left and then click print. In Office 2003 there was a print icon on the taskbar that required one click. Is there anyway to setup Office 2007 so that some basic functions (print, save, open, etc.) can be accomplished with one click?

Hi Tech Guys,

I currently use Office XP (2002) and need to install Office 2003 to use emails I was using on another machine.

I deleted Office XP using Control Panel add and Remove Programs, backed up my Outlook .pst file, changed the name of my .pst file from Outlook to Outlook2 for extra security, and ran the disk to install Office 2003 (this disk has been used before and should work).

The Office 2003 disk would not complete as it does not find some .cab files. When I check the disk these .cab files are there so I don't understand.

My machine is a little old but works well, Toshiba Portege 4010 P3 933MHz, 750MB RAM, Windows XP Pro SP3. I have AVG and Malawarebytes installed. 28 GB HD Capacity with 7.26 GB free.

Cookiegal has been helping me with some ther quetions and has seen scan logs etc to know it is pretty clean of malware and other junk.

Is there a solution to this? I have some important stuff I need to access from emails done in Office 2003. Can I open these somehow in Office 2002 Outlook?

All good ideas welcomed.

Thanks
David
