  • 1. Removing Office 2003 and Office 2003 MUI and reinstalling goes wro
    I have the following situation: Windows Server 2003 (SP2) 64bit, Office 2003 english,Office Multi Language Interface (german). The Office Installation went corrupt and the administrator deleted the Office 2003 english first and then second Office 2003MUI The Server was rebooted and Office 2003 english was reinstalled. When Office MUI will be installed it says that Office 2003 should be installed first but Office 2003 is allready installed. It seems that the Office 2003 MUI is allready installed and not removed. Can i remove the Office 2003 MUI with a DOS command or something? Can i install Office 2003 MUI with a DOS command or somehting?
  • 2. I'm told I can't Upgrade?
    Just purchased a new laptop with VISTA. But BEST BUY tells me that I can't upgrade from Office Pro 2003 because the NEW laptop doesn't have the suite. Even CompUSA is saying the same thing. I'm a REGISTERED 2003 owner, and I've got the Office 2003 discs used to upgrade my old laptop. During the installation of 2003, I pointed the software to look at my cdrom where I placed my Office 2000 disc for verification. Is this TRUE? Doesn't Office 2007 allow the user to install via pointing to the cdrom for verification of my Office 2003 disc? Just because I purchased a new laptop of VISTA, I have to purchase the FULL VERSION OF 2007?
    I ran Detect & Repair for an Oulook 2003 Pro issue and now all MSO products come up with a dialog that says the applications are not install for the current user. I am 100% that I chose the option to keep my current settings. How do I get the apps to connect to my login? WinXP SP2 3Ghz P4, 3Gb Ram, 160Gb free HD.

Office 2003 CIW Documentation

Hi Guys/Girls,

I'm currently working through page 10 of the CIW "Change 
Office User setting".

My problem is that I cannot seem to find any real 
documentation on the settings that CIW can modify.

If you have a document that contains the settings/options 
that can be modified by the CIW and what the MS defaults 
on these options can you please email it to me.

Many Thanks.

1.Office 2003 CIW & FrontPage

Got a really strange problem here.
I have done an administrative installation of Office 2003 Professional to a
server in our network.
Then created, with the 2003 ORK Custom Installation Wizard -a MST file with
our specific settings.

When Office is installed on the clients using a GPO in Win2000 FrontPage
2003 is also installed.
I can't find any way to NOT include it in the installation in the CIW.
And there is no way to include it in the installation when I try to install
it manually.

Where the h*ll does it come from? Since it not included in the Pro package,
and I don't whant to
pay for additional licenses - I would like to get rid of it.


2.Using Group Policy/ADM files on Office 2003 Deployed w/ CIW

I deployed Office 2003 to our XP clients using the Custom Installation 
Wizard. I configured various settings, but now that users are starting to use 
Office 2003, I'm running into things that I would like to change. Can I use 
the Office 2003 .adm files in Group Policy to modify settings even though I 
configured Office 2003 using the Custom Installation Wizard? Assuming I can, 
what is the purpose of the Custom Maintenance Wizard, which supposedly allows 
you to make changes to your installation after the fact?

4.CIW and MST for Office 2003

I installed office using a mst created using the CIW for office 2003, when
it was created my coworker used the CIW to remove all the items listed under
office tools(photo editor, document scanning etc.)

This is a problem as many of our users need this, so i createdd a new mst
which includes those files, but when we run it on a machine which had the
original mst used, it makes no changes, is there way around this without
removing and reinstalling office. all i found on technet was 818239 and that
does not apply or work.
