  • 1. Office2007 Converter Admin Install
    I want to use a group policy to rollout the Office 2007 Converter to groups of users. I have tried to do an administrative installation using MSIEXEC, but nothing gets copied to the targetdir location. The log file shows the following errors. Does anyone know if an admin installation is possible with the converter?

  • 2. error
    Actually there is a Config.msi folder, it's a system protected temporary folder, that installers use to store decompressed temp files before they install them. I am not sure why this error occurs but i also have the same problem. Unfortunatly i have no answers, but i do know that that folder exists and you can access it if you make sure your folder options are set to display protected system folders and files... Anon
  • 3. Can't Upgrade to SP3 from Office 2000 SP1 or SP2
    I've done a fresh install of XP SP2 on my computer and now I'm trying to load in all my software. I have Office 2000 so I installed office 2000, then I downloaded the SP1a update that is required next. I then attempted to install SP3 and it says 'expected version not found' and aborts the install. I then removed Office 2000 from my computer, reinstalled it. Then installed 1a then installed SP2. Then attempted SP3 and got the same error. I did go to Add/Remove programs and in this screen my install is called Office 2000 - SR-1. This should be enought to work. Any suggestions?

Cannot update Office 2003 Pro on 64-bit OS

Postby U2VydmVyIE1vbmtleQ » Sat, 02 Feb 2008 10:05:00 GMT

Office update fails on the installation of selected Office updates using the 
Microsoft Office update service.

Office updates fail on install when manually installing updates.

The Operating System is Windows 2003 Enterprise Server R2 64-bit

The Office version is Office 2003 Professional (32 bit)

The initial install of Office went flawlessly and office Activated just 
fine. The individual products all work... I just cannot update them to any 
service pack level.

Has anyone experienced this behavior? I found a Hotfix that talks about 
32-bit applications running on 64-bit platforms performing in ways contrary 
to design. I have requested the Hotfix and have not gotten it yet. I will try 
it and see if that fixes the problem. However, while waiting I wanted to see 
if I could learn through someone else's pain.

For obvious reasons I would much prefer to not purchase another version of 
Office unless I absolutely must...

1.Office 2003 Professional - License & 64 bit OS

I installed this suite of programs a few years ago on my XP machine; I'm the 
original owner and have the discs. I just bought a Vista 64 bit machine.

Q1)     Am I good to go on that second machine without another license or do 
I have to call somewhere for an additional purchase?

Q2)    In trying to research Q1 I stumbled upon an article on Office 2010. A 
comment was made about it being offerred for both 32 and 64 bit machines... 
when available. That made me wonder: will 2003 run without incident on my 64 
bit machine?

However, when i set the security to "Low" using "tools->macro->security" it 
is lost next time i open Excel and reset back to high. I don't know what is 
going on. Please help.



3.Problem with Office 2003 in WIN 7 Pro 64 bit

I have a new computer with Win 7 Professional, 64 bit.  We did not buy a new 
version of Office, so I re-installed my old copy of Office 2003.  I have two 
problems, one minor and one major.  For the first, I'm asked to accept the 
license agreement each time I start the program or send/receive messages.  
For the second, I am unable to import my old PST file into the new PC.  I can 
import a single folder using a tab-separated file, but attempting to import a 
PST (to get my many nested job folders) results in an immediate error: < The 
operation failed.  An object could not be found. >

Any help would be appreciated.

5.Difference between 32 bit and 64 bit OS

During my research about 64 and 32 bit operating system I found many
people confused about what computer they should purchase or what bit
system they should choose I think this article should be a great help
for people to choose the correct machine for their use.
I found many people asking about that what is the difference between 32
and 64 bit operating system?... I hope after reading this article people
would feel free to choose the best machine for them.
A 32 bit processor is faster than a 64 bit processor, 64 bit processors
are very commonly used that you can find it easily in any home pc but
the main difference is the hardware you are having on your machine. For
32 bits there isn't any need of any wide main bus to carry 32 bits at a
time but for 64 bits its must that you should have a wider bus to carry
The main difference between a 32 bit and 64 is that 32 bit system has
4gb(gigabytes) of space for addressing means that the 32 bit system has
a limit of 4GB RAM to process data where as the 64 bit operating system
has 2^64 bits of space to address and supports 16 hexabytes of RAM to
process data.
A person who does not care about the category will find 64 bit more
beneficial than 32 bit because he can use 64 bit OS with 32 bit Os and
softwares. If we compare 64 bit with 32 bit OS, 64 bit is faster and
performs more upgraded silicon processes and have more no of
transistors which proves it to be more advantageous than 32 bit.
Now most of the software companies are developing their softwares in
accordance to the 64 bit environment, it's really hard for the
consumers to run a 64 bit application in 32 bit environment, in this
case they have to upgrade their hardware's such as RAM which is also a
big issue because most of the computer users have less than 1Gb in
their systems.
So instead of changing your hardware day by day I would recommend d32
bit OS which is more user friendly and enables it users to run
applications of 64 bit in 32 bit environment.
