Office 2000 setup

  Fredbb 13:24 20 May 2003

Having had problems with my Office 2000 program I un-installed it and now I am trying to reload it but cannot. My windows system is Millenium edition. Office seems to load, then at the end after my computer restarts I get the Message "error 1911 Could not register OWSDSC.DLL type library" When I type ignore, (nothing happens when I press re-try) various other file names come up with a simmilar message. When I try to open Office I get the message "Not a valid win 32 prog". I have tried Ms help on line elp with no results. Can any one out there help.

click here this will give you all the files for Office 2000, you can download any that are corrupt on your system.

There is probably an easier way, but until someone else, comes along with the answer, you can have a try here.

The file: OWSDSC.DLL, is down near the bottom of the page. good luck. J.

Is that the whole of Office 2000 on an FTP server?

I think that expertec was asking Djohn a question, not you.

Sorry it was of no help, have you tried VoG™'s suggestion?

expertec, not quite sure what you mean, I put the error message, "OWSDSC.DLL" into google and it came up with that answer. Regards. J.

i know you say cured but for others, you could have used system restore to go back to before you installed office, then you could have deleted the office folder and started from scratch. hope this helps
