  • 2. Totally Lost with MSP files
    I have a Office 2007 Pro Plus install. I have created a MSP that will enter the product key, company name, and removes InfoPath, Publisher, and Access. When I run that MSP everything runs and installs fine. Now I want to create a custom MSP that will install Access. So it will alter the original setup and install Access. I opened my original MSP and then added Access to my program. I then save this as a different MSP name. When I run it (by Double-clicking on it) the setup runs for a while then I get some dialog box that has a header of Microsoft Office <program? MUI (English) 2007 and the information in the dialog box is nothing but little squares almost like there is japanese charachters. I do not have any support turned on for Japanese fonts. The <program? states different things. Infopath, shared, Publisher..etc. When it finished Access is not installed.. First questions is why the MUI dialog boxes? Second how do I alter a setup to add programs to the mix? Any resources other than the Technet quide..i read that and I am still lost.

This happens on Visual Studio also. I have reinstalled and did a detect
and repair on both with no luck.

1.Windows Installer starts everytime with Outlook 2003

I upgraded from OfficeXP to Office2003. Now everytime I start Outlook, the 
Windows Installer automatically starts.

I don't know what it thinks it needs to install, but it's tough to get 
anything done for several minutes.

Other notes- I have applied Office 2003 SP2, no change in behavior noted.
Add/Remove Programs still shows OfficeXP, but won't let me change or delete 

2.Windows Installer pops up everytime I open an Office 2007 program

A Windows Installer box breifly pops up no matter what Office program I open. 
 This includes IE.  All I've done is uninstall Office 2003 and Installed 07.  
I've done this a couple times.  Including using the optin in 07 that is to 
remove previous version of office.  My event viewer gives me this error: 
Detection of product '{91170409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}', feature 
'HandWritingFiles' failed during request for component 
I'm not comfortable with removing from the register.  But I have a feeling 
this is the solution.  Any Help??

3.EULA pops up everytime I start MS Offfice Word or Excel (Office 2003)

You can stop this behavior by first logging onto your computer as Administrator and then starting the program to "Run as Administrator". To do this you need to Right-Click on the file itself which should be located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\EXCEL.exe" (or WINWORD.exe)

First close any open office applications, then open each one as explained above, click "Accept" on the EULA and then close the program. This should cure the problem.

4.Windows Installer Starts Everytime Excel 2007 runs!

I have Office 2007, everytime I run Excel 2007 the Windows 
Installer/Configuration box pops up and essentially installs 
Excel(EVERYTIME), as you can see this is very annoying, it takes up to 2 mins 
or longer many times, I have gone to many sites and forums,  I have changed 
registry values, re-installed it, everythjing I have been told to do,but yet 
no luck, I have found other similar type of problems with pssible solutions 
and still no help. If anyone knows how to fix this issue do not hesitate to 
help. I would greatly appreciate it.
