When trying to open a document on Word I get the message 'This msi must be launched through setup'
Any ideas how I do this?

What version of Word?

There should be a detect and repair option under help?

  helpmeplease 20:02 22 Oct 2005

The version is
Microsoft Office Word 2003 (11.6502.6360) SP1
message comes up with any document
Detect and repair doesnt solve the problem
I have tried remove and re-install word also
Should I try remove all Office and re-install?
(I prev had Norton antivirus which I have now removed and replaced with AVG)

Ok so I cant find the exact error message but on looking through the Knowledge Base I think your best bet it to Uninstall Reboot then reinstall.

uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled and sp2 installed but still getting box appear saying SETUP This msi must be launced through setup
Thanks for your effort in helping me

Try the 'old faithful' of closing Word and deleting all instances of the "" file on your system, then restart Word which will create a new file. You never know, it might help.

MAJ Removing the file worked for the next time word was opened - but the second time reverted to the same problem. I repeated it and the same thing happened again.

SANTOS7 suggestion seems very complicated - may try it when Ive got lots of time to concentrate - thanks
