Just received my new Dell Inspiron 6400. I need to install Office xp Pro but each time I try I get an error message 1305. setup cannot read file C:Program Files/Microsoft/Office/Office 10/ ACWZDAT.MDT.I have clicked retry but it gets no further than this error.It comes up with different file errors.
Can someone please help me?

I did read this last night but will have to try and go through all of this later. Thought maybe someone had a quick fix. They seem to suggest the cache in the cd drive configuration. I will try and reduce it, have a dvd . It is a brand new laptop , got it Wednesday . I thought that perhaps it was something else.I phoned Dell but they do not support other software.Do you think I will get the same message if I install Office 97 or office 2000?
Will Try later

I persevered and just kept on clicking retry all the time. It took ages but it worked! Never say die!
Thanks for the help!
