Windows Installer

When I try to open or save some files I get a window:

Windows Installer.

The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the “Microsoft Office 2000 Disc 2” disk and click OK.

I click cancel and everything works as normal.

It also happens when I open two of my friends emails.

I do have Microsoft Office 2000 installed on this computer and disc 2 is MS Publisher, which is working perfectly.

Why should I keep getting asked to insert this CD?

Fruit Bat /\0/\, great. Thanks for that.

I downloaded it OK but when I installed it I got no indication of where it was being installed?

So if I don't know where it is installed how do I run it?

Has it automatically installed?
Check for Windows Install cleaner in your start menu programs.

or do a search for msicuu2.exe

Fruit Bat /\0/\, thanks. Found it, run it and all it did was remove MS Office Professional 2000.

I had to re-install it so now we are back to the same Windows Installer error message.

Install it again and select the Customize option, left click on the box at the top of the list of applications and choose 'Run all from my computer'

I am Spartacus, install what again?

If you mean msicuu2.exe, I have done that. I don't get a "Customize" option.

Install Office again.

When you install it it installs only the most commonly used features. When you select a task that isn't installed it looks for it on the CD which is why you get that message.

I am Spartacus, thanks.

Done that, so hopefully, no more Windows Installer messages.

Will tick as resolved.
