  • 1. High CPU Usage with Office SP2 on Terminal Services
    Hi, We run Office 2003 in a Citrix/Terminal services environment. We have just installed SP2 on one of our test systems (clean install of Office with SP2 rather than an upgrade). With SP1 installed we could get 60 - 70 users onto a server. With SP2 the limit is about 30 users before CPU hits 100%. If you look in task manager it is the Outlook processes that are taking all the CPU. Has anyone else seen this or have any solutions? -------------------------- Jonathan Thomas --------------------------

  • 3. Office 2003 SBE, how can I stop downloads from MS for Access?
    I have Office 2003 Small Business Edition -- no MS Access. However, when checking for updates MS always lists critical updates for Access. If I fail to un-check these updates, download time is used and obviously the installation fails. This is a minor inconvenience but I would like the MS update checker to stop falsely listing updates for Access.

Error 1706 - Office 2000 on XP Pro

Installed Office 2000 Small Business Ed. on XP Pro under 
Admin account and updated via SR-1 to SP-3 pluis security 
updates with Office Update.
Log on as the normal Restricted (Power) User and I keep 
getting "Error 1706. No valid source could be found for 
product Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Small Business. The 
Windows installer cannot continue." when starting Word or 
Why does it quote SR-1 when SP-3 is installed?
Why do I get this error message? and how can I get round 
Hoping in anticipation...

1.Install of Office 2000 on an XP Pro machine w/Error 1706

Installed Office 2000 on my XP Pro machine as an 
administrator and then updated it from Microsoft office 
update page.  In the administrator logon I can run Office 
Word as normal.  But for non-administrator users I'm 
prompted with the Installer window followed by an Error 
1706 window.  To resolve this I changed each user to 
administrator then opened Office Word in each user 
account and then after being prompt by Office, e.g. the 
Installer window would request I insert the Office 2000 
SR-1 CD, subsequencely installing the component which 
must be required when a user activiates Office for the 
first time.  Then I returned the users back to the 
limited account status, subsequencly Office Word, etc. 
operated in the user accounts correctly after that.  
However, I can't repeat this same process on the Guest 
account, as it can't be an administrator and logging on 
as an administrator in the guest account as microsoft 
tech notes suggest didn't resolve the problem.  I did log 
on as administrator to install Office 2000 SR-1 in the 
quest account, it did install components. However, it 
seem to need the Installer called from Office before the 
appropriate components were installed.  Therefore every 
time I run Office e.g. Word on the guest account I'm 
prompted with this Install window followed by this Error 
1706 window.  Any suggestions?  Please email me, thank

5.Error 1706 limited user Office 2000 in Windows XP

I have searched around quite a bit and can't find any answer to this.  I 
installed Office 2000 and all the Office updates right after Win XP (both 
Professional) and all its updates (except Service Pack 2; work doesn't trust 
it yet & has a supplementary application to do most of the security things it 
does).  Whenever I try to use an Office application as a limited user, a 
little window appears claiming Office is searching for install files and then 
spits out an Error 1706, can't find whatever it's looking for.  I press 
Cancel, the situation repeats usually 3 times total, and then the application 
starts.  If I've launched it by double-clicking a document, the document does 
not show up, although I can use Open and find it.  It appears to just be a 
nuisance.  I had the problem as an administrator but when I used Detect and 
Repair it fixed that.

Do I just live with this or run everything as an administrator or what?
