  • 1. Unable to Install Office 2003
    I'm unable to install Office 03 on my newest laptop. Nothing happens when I load the disc - the LED stays on and nothing is displayed in the cd directory - it's as if there's no cd in the drive at all. The disc is fne because the directory displays when I insert it into other machines I don't currently have any versions of office on this machine. I suspect it's because I've installed it on 3 other machines (the max), but one of the other laptops has died and is unusable, so I'd like to put it on the one I just purchased. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
  • 2. microsoft office 2003 not opening
    Ever since my son removed me as administrator to my computer and made himself administrator I have had nothing but headaches. I have to search everywhere to find 5 years worth of files. Now everytime I try to open Microsoft Office 2003, it shows a box that states Windows Installer. It looks as though it is installing it then it says could not install browse where it is located (in so many words). I can't open my excel, word, or access documents. Please help.

  • 4. Office hangs when roaming profile moves pc
    Hi guys, I have a customer who's users are running XP SP2 with Office SMB 2007 and roaming profiles being downloaded from an SBS 2003 server. 2 users (so far) have logged onto other machines and discovered that when they try to double click on an office doc (which they have previously accessed) or use file->open, word or excel hangs and the process must be killed. They work without a problem on their original machine. I have checked the event logs and there is nothing out of the ordinary except for the application hang log. I have tried running detect and repair and even reinstalling office, but no luck. I have not recreated the roaming profile, because it works correctly on their original machines. Does anyone have any ideas what I might try to look for?

Excel Mouse Selection Problem

Postby Paulo Silva » Tue, 06 Jan 2004 21:20:51 GMT

Hello everyone,

I'm having a strange problem with Excel 2000. After i click for the first
time my left mouse button, the mouse enters selection mode, as if i was
pressing the shift key.
I've browsed the net for a solution, even the MS support site with no
success.
Has anyone ever had this problem? Or has a clue of what could be appening?

Thanks in advance,

Paulo Silva

Hi Paulo,

Have you tried using another mouse? I've encountered this issue with
Excel in the past. Only Excel exhibited the behavior.

If the problem still occurs then do you have a wheel mouse? If you
click the wheel in Excel then it will go into a selection mode.

Also take a look at the Status bar. If you see "Ext" then you are in
Extend Selection mode and it can be turned off by pressing F8 or Esc.

1.Excel Mouse selection problems

I am having a problem with excel.  Every time I open a 
workbook, when I select a cell with the mouse(left button 
click), the program seems to want to just highlight more 
area when the mouse is moved.  I can do nothing in the 
excel menus etc.  I try pressing enter to complete the 
selection and nothing happens.  I suspect my 2 year old 
has screwed something up when my wife lt her sit at the 
computer desk.  Any help would be appreciated

3.Opening Outlook - Mouse Selection problems

When I open Outlook the program runs through its setup and automatically 
checks for messages. Problem is, when it has finished the pointer on the 
mouse will move but will not allow me to select or 'click' on an item. The 
only way to rectify is to perform an Alt Ctrl Del. As soon as I perform the 
same the mouse is able to select items so I simply close the task manager 
window. This is becoming very annoying and only happens when opening Outlook. 
I am running Office 2003. Please help. 

4.Outlook 2003 crash after drop down list selection with mouse

Each time I select a drop down list in the Tool Option window, outlook 
crashes and show the standard message to restart Outlook and send report to 
Microsoft.  This append for differents drowp down list like Message Format, 
Signature selection, Language selection etc.  In the Event Viewer I can see 
that failing module is user32.dll I tried everything like recreate the 
profile, reinstalling Office from scratch, using different logon profile, 
using differents outlook profile, running outlook in safe mode, but the bug 
is still there. I am running Outlook 2003 SP2 on Windows XP SP2 with all the 
updates for XP.

What is strange is that Outlook crashes only when I select item in a drop 
down list with the mouse.  If I make a selection with the arrow on the 
keyboard, outlook don't crash.

Can anyone advice please?
