MS Office 2000 Pro and MS Publisher 2000 upgrade

  fernlea 17:06 18 Dec 2003

I am having problems with both of these programmes.
MS Office 2000 Pro installs the 1st CD without any problem, but when I try to install the 2nd CD (containing MS Publisher)it gets to 'Installing MS office 2000' 'Please wait while Windows conigures MS Office 2000' At this stage the installation stops and it is necessary to restart the computer.
With MS Publisher 2000, I have installed MS Publisher 98, MS Publisher 2000 sticks at the same place as Office 2000.

My operating system is Windows 98se. I have no problems with an older computer, but my newer one has the above problem.

Can anyone suggest a fix?

Is the troublesome computer a new, incredibly fast, state of the art pride and joy?

Reason I ask is that Win98, good as it certainly is, could fail with memory allocation/configuration and sheer CPU speed.

For instance RAM in W98SE is 512Mb top whack

No help I know. I've been having EXACTLY the same problem with Publisher 2000 on a 98SE lappie.

At least it's not just me!

it's just a bump from me, I put both Office 2000 pro discs on an older machine/PC on top of 98se without any problems. (great systems combined)

Then... (it's a long story) involving W2000 pro.
(no complaints)

Then at the beginning of this year along came XP pro...So I slapped No2 Office 2000 disc on top without a problem.
