MS Office 2003 running on my XP SP3 Dell workstation, displays an error message each time I try to run any MS Office application. It wants me to continue with an install and eventually gets to a point where it asks me to identify the location of the installation CD.
I can cancel out of it but this can take up to ten goes before it gets the message.
Once clear of these installation messages, the application runs fine.
This workstation is around four years old, and apart from routine updates has been running trhe same installation of Office from new with none of these problems.
Clues please? I don't want to go back to the original CD installation because I will lose all of the routine updates that have downloaed over the years.
I should have said it jumps straight into the Windows Installer Routine and from there into an automatic install, which crahses because it can't find 'A required installation file SKU112.cab could not be found' and offers me a browse option to look for the file. This whole cycle happens about three or four times before the application finally opens and runs just fine.
