have no idea what i do that prompts this. i don't have outlook 2000 installed and have never used it. i have no idea what it's trying to install or why. if i cancel the dialog it pops up again right away. i have to keep hitting cancel over and over before it finally dies for good. any idea what it's trying to do???Put in the Office 2000 CD that was used to install Office 2000 and it should start to configure whatever it needs to do.I have a dell system that came with office xp sbe. i put the office cd's in the drive, but the dialog doesn't accept them. it keeps saying it wants the 'Microsoft Office 2000' disk, which i don't have. i think this happens when i use the search feature in windows explorer. also from the event logs
so I can be compatible when emailing files from the office to home??What Office programs do you use at your office? Basically, your question has nothing to do with the operating system (Windows XP) and everything to do with compatible software applications. If, for example, you want to create documents in MS Word at home and then email them to yourself at the office, where you will work on them some more, you need to have the same Office software (and same version) at both places. So, you need to have the same version of Office on both your laptop and work computers. My understanding is that your older Office version will work on XP, but you should double-check that in an MS Office newsgroup. If this isn't what you wanted to know, then please post back with a better description of

couple of months ago, my computer started freezing up. happend about when i was trying to install microsoft service pack 2. i had a dial up back then, so i just thought it would go away when i got the downloaed sp2 with my now dsl connection. still having the same problems. the computer just freezes, then reboots. or it doesn't reboot and i have to reset. i also get this problem when i try to scan the hard drive using norton antivirus. jon computer: 256mb ram 40gb hd OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 1 Build 2600 Processor x86 Family 15 Model 1 Stepping 2 GenuineIntel ~1893 MhzHi, It is recommended that you perform a disk clean up, defragmentation of the hard disk and complete virus scan to clean the computer before upgrading to SP2.
my PC. A window containing the error message "Isass.exe - System error : An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function" kept appearing and upon closing it, my PC will restart itself.

each time I use exell or word, windows installer tries to install office xp small business which I do not have can I remove that request using the windows installer clean up utility with no risk? what does xp small business provide? should I get it?Word, Excel, etc *IS* Office. If you don't have the SBE, what version /do/ you have?! Office XP SBE was OEM only and, as such, was only provided with a new system. You must have some version of Office if you have Office applications as no version of Windows has ever included them.It's cause some of the features your trying to use are not installed on your pc, and you need to insert the cd to install those features, I suggest you get the office xp install cd, no need to get the full blown version, unless you can afford it

I have bought a new CPU/machine and want to install my XP Home edition on it and remove it from my current machine. I have heard there is a number you can call to have it be released from that machine, so I can install it on a new one. Someone I know has done this, but I can't get a hold of him. MattHi Matt, No one to call. Just install it and activate. If it has been less than 120 days since you activated on the other machine, you will be prompted to phone it in. If not, then it will likely activate automatically just like it originally did. If you have to phone it in, then simply tell them you removed it from the original installation and are installing it on this machine. You will not get a hassle. Note that this applies only to regular retail boxed versions of WindowsXP. If you

Hi, I have tried to install Office XP 2003, and setup stops with a message saying that it has detected an incomplete installation of Windows XP Service Pack 1, and that Office XP 2003 won't work in that environment. But that upgrade is needed by my colleagues, and the only way it can be done is by reinstalling windows or by downloading the service pack and installing it. But downloading the service pack would take so much time. Service Pack Uninstall is not available in Add and Remove Software. Do you know another way around this? Shafiee.

installed it. But now that the trial period expired I can't go back to XP Home. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go back without erasing everything. I already try to install the XP Home ed disk by turning the computer on safe mode. But once the XP home starts it tells that I already have it, and shuts off.You can't simply delete XP Pro. You need to backup your files, reformat your drive and reinstall XP Home "clean". The Windows XP CD is bootable and contains all the tools necessary to partition and format your drive. Follow this procedure and allow Windows XP to partition and format your drive: 1. It would be best to physically disconnect all your peripheral hardware devices, except for you mouse and keyboard, before installing
access a folder in the new computer. It used take less than a second. can anyone tell me what might causing the problem?I think I was unclear that the problem occurs when I try to access a folder from other computer. actually 2 computers are accessing a shared folder in the new computer.if you are trying to access a shared folder, it could depend on the network traffic (may not be relavant to your situation, as you said you have 2 pc's) as to how fast it goes. For me, even with no traffic, it takes the folders about 3-5sec's to load. You said minute, so i don't know if that was a figurative minute, as in a few seconds, or an actual 60 seconds or more, but it could be the above, or you may have another network problem somewhere. Hope this helps.Thanks for

My dad already has a windows xp professional cd (our home desktop) and I have my windows xp product number extracted from my computer. However, when I enter the cd key, it says that it's invalid I was wondering if there is more than 1 version of windows xp professional.The Product Key affixed to your Sony Vaio Laptop will only work with the Sony recovery method. It will not work with any other version of Windows XP. If you wish to install Windows XP Professional, you'll need to purchase a "Full Version" of Windows XP Professional and install it after reformatting your hard drive.

hi, i just bought a new pc. i cant install windows xp. installation starts fine, but whenever the installation requires a reboot, it shuts down the pc when the windows xp logo starts to appear. same goes for installing winodws 2000.I assume you bought a barebones pc that didn't come with an operating system and you are trying to install one on a bare hard drive. If no peripherals (printers, scanners, cameras, etc.) are attached and any antivirus is turned off in the BIOS, then usually difficulties installing an operating system are because of faulty hardware. Just because hardware is new doesn't mean it can't be bad. I'd start by testing the RAM with something like Memtest86 (www.memtest86.com) and if there are no errors, test the hard drive with

for the correct file in the following locations, in this order: 1.. The cache folder (by default, %systemroot%\system32\dllcache). 2.. The network install path, if the system was installed using network install. 3.. The Windows CD-ROM, if the system was installed from CD-ROM. It's the 3rd option which asks you insert the XP CD-ROM to restore the corrupt system files. -- Ramesh [email protected]

with SP2. The SP2 comes from a SUS server that handles our critical updates and such. Now after we do this, we try to install Office 2000 Professional, and it comes up asking for the Windows XP SP2 cd. Does anyone know how to fix this as we would like to make sure that the users getting these PC's do not see this message and that the installer finds the files it needs without prompting for a CD? Any help would be nice. ChadYou'll need to change a couple of Registry Keys to resolve this. The Office install is triggering a call to the XP source media for files. XP has a hierarchy for getting source files. (1.) DllCache (From Windows\System32 (2.) ServicePackFiles (3.) i386 Folder (If installed from a disk drive or share) (4.) Original Source point ( CD-ROM

I could use some help getting an older program (MicroCookbook 5.0 Pinpoint/ISMI software) running under Windows XP professional.

I am trying to upgrade from XP Home to XP Professional. But, I get a message that the version of Windows that is on the computer is new than the one that I am trying to install. What can I do?You presumably have SP2 installed, so your XP Professional Upgrade, without it, is an older version that what's installed. You have two choices: 1. Uninstall SP2, do the upgrade, then reinstall SP2. 2. Create a slipstreamed version of XP Professional, including SP2 and use it. See http://forum.aumha.org/viewtopic.php?t=7262
