Microsoft Greetings v2001

  swapper 18:44 04 Apr 2011


I started to install Microsoft Greetings v2001, on my refurbished WinXPPro pc
I haven't used this programme for a number of years, but now I want to, because I cannot afford to spend much on progs. these days, and I remember that this was a good programme.

Halfway through the installation, it asked for the second disk to be installed, when I opened the CD holder I found that the second disk was not the correct disk, but one of my old picture backups.
I therefore only have the first disk of two.
Is there anything I can do about this please?

Try Googling for a possible Microsoft Download?

Thanks for the suggestion which I did take on board, with no success, however, I had a look through all the junk discs in my garage, and I found the 2nd disc of the two required.
Am I a happy man?

thanks again.

That's good - thanks for your feedback.

I lost my original XP Retail disc once.

It turned up a year later in the CD drive of my old laptop in the wardrobe.

Fortunately I had a copy. Even if they don't get lost it's useful. Easily damaged or can degrade.
