  • 1. Office 2003 Fonts and XP
    When using XP (home or pro) and Office 2003 (standard), if the toolbars in any of the Office applications (Word, Excel, etc.)are customized to "large icon", the resultant icons are blurred. I have checked this out on multiple notebooks (Dell, Sony, etc.). If XP is used with an earlier version of Office (say, Office 2002), there is no distortion of the toolbar icons in large size. Does anyone know of a fix to sharpen these fuzzy icons?
  • 2. Error Codes
    My Office XP has some how become corrupt. When I try to uninstall it I get a error 2203 and PPS referal message and it will not uninstall. What files do I need to delete to get this uninstalled so that I can reinstall it.
  • 3. Office 2000 and 2003 coexisting?
    I have the entire Office 2003 Pro installed but I also need a portion of Office 2000 (specifically Access 2000) installed. I know that you used to have to do a few things to have 97 and 2000 coexist. Is there anything that needs to be done to have 2000 and 2003 together? thanks Laura
  • 4. Adding Access 2002 , Outlook to Off XP
    Hi, I've developed a transform to install Office XP 'standard' (no Access or Outlook). This transform will be deployed via software distribution (Marimba) and silent installs (along with Win XP). Is it possible to add Access or Outlook by using their respective setup commands (eg setupacc, setupolk) to Office 'standard'? With Office 97 Standard if you wanted Access, then Microsoft (KB article) said to first unistall Office 97 standard and the3n to install Professional from scratch. Is this still true for Office XP or can individual programs be installed via their own setup commands? Is this documented any where? I haven't found it in MS KB. Thanks in advance.

  • 5. Checking serial numbers
    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I need to rebuild a few PCS. I am therefore going to reinstall office on these machines, but I have one problem, I dont know which licence applies for each version of office. I understand the activation process will not let you activate a copy of office if it has already been activated with windows. Is this correct? I would be very gratefull if anyone could help me. Thanks, David Marr

Updating Office 2000 without original install CD

I'm trying to update Office on a friend's system.  The system is 
running Windows 2000 Professional, with all current patches.  The 
system has Office 2000 Professional SR-1 installed on it.  My friend 
doesn't have the original install CD.

On other systems, I've been able to install "Office 2000 Update: 
February 10, 2004" ( http://www.**--****.com/ 
scid=kb;en-us;835220) which (in my experience) has eliminated the 
need for the original install CD to apply Service Pack 3.  However, 
in the case of this system, when I run "office2000-kb835220-client-
enu.exe" to install this update, it requests the original install CD.

I don't expect to get a solution to this, based on Usenet posts and 
web pages where people have reported a similar problem but have not 
received an answer (except for "get a CD").  I just want to complain 
about Microsoft's decision to require the presence of a CD in order 
to do updates they recommend.

Get a CD ;)
