I purchased MS Office 2003 Professional on eBay and ran it successfully on MS XP. I can not, however, run it on MS Vista Home Premium. When trying to install the programme I receive the message "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)". The programme is shown as being compatible with Vista. Is there a solution to the problem or do I need to invest in another Office programme?
Many thanks for the suggestions, unfortunately nothing worked. Even using the CD Recovery Toolbox my PC was sluggish and unstable (I blame the defective Office Suite for these problems). I have now used the second license for my daughter's MS Office Home and Student 2007, although "Access" is missing. Still, you can't have everything!
