    I loaded and activated MS Office Small Business Edition 2003 on my brand new laptop. Then the monitor went out, and I had to exchange the computer for a new one. I've loaded my software, but now it won't let me activate because it's activated on the original defective computer. Help!

  • 5. How to install office on to my computer?
    I have a compaq presario and am able to install other programs on it. I am running into a problem installing office 2003. It is brand new and when I put in the cd it says its copying files to the computer then it says that the window installer service can not be accessed either because I am running the computer in safe mode (which I don't think I am) or the installer has not been installed correctly, please contact my support provider. I don't have one. What do I do? I need this program for a computer class that I am taking.

Hi Rachel,

This article may help with Error 1311.
    http://www.**--****.com/ ;en-us;299774

If it's a U.S. Office 2000 OEM CD you will be
able to move it to a new machine.  If it's
an Office 2000 SR1 CD (OEM) you probably won't be
able to activate it on the new machine, it's
tied to the original machine.

If you are successful in installing it and in running
the apps and without the activation wizard, you can
update through  http://www.**--****.com/ 


I have the original disk of Office 2000 Professional for
distribution with new pc only(came with dell notebook).
When installing on new XP machine half way thru the SR-1
Disk 1 Iget the following msg.
Error 1311.  Source file not found F:\OFFICE1.CAB.  Verify
that the file exists and that you can acces it.
I can see the file and access the file but I can not
continue with the installing.

I understand there are service packs available, but I
thought I need it installed first before I  can upgrade.

Does anyone have an idea of how to get this installed.

Please help.

1.Access 2000 runtime install problem and Office XP ( without access xp) on same machine

Hey all,
            I am having a problem installing Access 2000 runtime on a
machine. The machine has Office XP installed on it but it is the SBE version
which DOES NOT include a version of Access XP. When I try to install the
2000 runtime it will get about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way through and then just
sits there and will not finish. Does anyone have a idea about what is going
on or have a solution to this problem ?

Thanks in advance,


2.Installing Office 2000 on New XP Machine

Our old computer has died and we purchased a new machine
that has XP Home.  It also has Microsoft Works 7.0.  I 
want to load the Office 2000 upgrade I purchased for 
$200.00 a few years ago on this new machine as the old one 
is now dead due to a motherboard failure.

Can I load my Office 2000 upgrade on this XP machine. It 
has the correct upgrade requirement, which is a version of 
Microsoft Works 7.0.

I get an error unable to locate a qualifying product on 
the machine.


3.Installing Office XP on New Machine: Old Machine/Upgraade Path Dead as Doornail

I am reinstalling Office XP on a new computer.

My old computer with the previous version of Office is 
way gone, dead.

I do not have the ancient disks required to reinstall my 
original version of Office.  I do have upgrades for 
Office 2000 and Office XP.  

Before I get flamed for not having some moldy discs, I 
have moved many times and much of my older software got 
lost in the shuffle.

Is there any way to get Microsoft to ge my Office XP on 
my new machine.

Many thanks,
