file not available after installing office2003

Microsoft OFFICE


  • 1. subscription
    Is there a way to verify that the install of Office XP Professional on my system is a full unlimited use or a time limited subscrition? Thank you.
  • 2. Office 200 network install
    We have spent the last few years installing Office 2000to each machine using the CD. The latestsewcurity patch release has now shown that this is not the way to install as we will have an enormous task updating each machine individually. I have created an administrative install point on our server and would like to roll out the install to existing users. However I was hoping the install would run and overwrite the existing install paths etc with the network ones. This does not happen - because Office is already installed on the target machine the install just stops. How can we update CD installed Office 2000 installs with the new one from the administrative install point? We have about 200 to do. The last thing we want to do is to have to manually uninstall Office before doing an administrative install. Should a patched version of the install overwrite a standard CD installed version?

  • 5. MS Office 97 - Professional Edition
    I loaded MS97 under Win 98. When I installed Win ME, the program ran w/o any problems. I had to do a full install of Win to correct a proble. In trying to load Off. 97 again, it refuses to load because I do not have a previous versin installed. Ther is no indication at all on the package that this is an UPGRADE. Any suggestions? Thanks.

file not available after installing office2003

I installed office2003 on a machine that already had office 2000. I selected 
the "ugrade" option.  The installation went fine but now all of the documents 
in "My Documents" cannot be opened.  When I try, I receive the message " File 
is not available".  When I try to exit Office, I see the following: "The file 
Normal already exists. Do you want to replace it?"
What do I need to do?

Disable the Office Plugin that comes with Symantec/Norton AntiVirus. See

the Norton AntiVirus Office plug-in" for more info.

1.word is not available, not installed, or not same version as outlo

I have always used Word 2003 to edit my email messages and until this morning 
it worked fine. Today however when attempting to reply to emails, I am 
getting the message "word is not available, not installed, or is not the same 
version as outlook." When I started getting this message, I went to Microsoft 
updates and completed downloading all updates and have rebooted, but am still 
getting the same message. Any ideas?

2."Word is not available, not installed..."

In XP, I have been using Word 2003 as my Outlook 2003 editor successfully for 
a long time.  However, today, I am repeatedly getting this message when I try 
to respond to an email using Outlook:
"Microsoft Word is set to be your e-mail editor.  However, Word is 
unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook.  The 
Outlook e-mail editor will be used instead."

I have unchecked and re-checked the boxes under Outlook/Options/Mail Format 
(Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 203 to...") and re-booted. However, it 
appears that checking the top one ("Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit 
e-mail message") does not want to stay checked.

How can I get Outlook 2003 to again use Word 2003 as my e-mail editor?

3.Installing complete Office2003 with GPO - still asking me to install Speech Recognition


Having a problem doing the Software Installation via a GPO. Trying to push 
out Office 2003 to everybody, where it doesn't ask the end user for 
anything, it just installs and configures everything by itself.

All but one thing pops up when they first open Outlook:

"Microsoft Office Outlook can't load Speech Recognition files. This feature 
is not currently installed. Would you like to install it now?"

Why is that coming up? I picked to install the Full installation? Or is 
Speech Recognition not part of Office 2003?

Anyone who knows how to get rid of that popup?

4.File Not Available Msg - do not have Norton

Hi there, 
I do not have Norton or McAfee on my computer (Dell Laptop). I just 
installed Office 2007 and every time I try to open a word document it says 
that the file is not available. I am able to create and save a new document, 
but if I try to open the new one, it is also not available.
I have tried to look through my anti-virus to find some similar issue like 
that of Norton, but cannot figure it out. 
Does anyone have additional suggestions?!?
Thank you so much for any help,
