Error message installing Office 97 Pro on WinXP(H)

Please does anyone know what this error message means??

(quoted as seen) "htmlarq.ocx was unable to register itself in the system registry"

The programme does install and the applications will run,once I cancel a couple of error messages.

Hi VoG,

Yep,it worked perfectly.

I only had to reset compatability to "Windows95".

Question? should I now reset the "tmp" back to "ocx".

Many thanks for your reply,I am sorted.

Regards, Martin. ;)
