  • 1. Office 2000 Downloads
    When I try to apply the security patches for Office 2000, I keep getting the error message "1324 Folder path 'Program Files' contains invalid character." I can't uninstall and reinstall Office 2000 for the same reason....I keep getting that same error message.
  • 2. Office update cannot check for updates
    I am trying to run office update such that it can check for the necessary Word updates that I require. It starts running and then stops after 40% and indicates that it cannot continue. It suggests checking the Internet connection that is fine and then indicates that there may have been a problem with Windows Installer and that I should check the directory Window\Installer that does not exist. Note that Windows Update works with no problems!
  • 3. Upgrading Office from 4.3 Professional
    I originally purchased Office professional 4.3, then bought the upgrade to Office 97 professional for Win 98. I am purchasing a new computer with XP to replace my old 98 computer. I want to upgrade my Office to the latest professional suite for XP. Will I be able to upgrade, since my original install disk is 4.3?
  • 4. SP3 update issue
    After running the SP3 updates with no problems, Norton Utilities tells me there are:- 25 invalid Activex/COM entries 2 Invalid file extensions 4 Invalid help files a) Am I safe in assuming this is because the update changed these things, but didn't tidy up after itself? b) Do I need to do anything about them?

update with Office 97 upgraded to Office 2000

Postby THluZQ » Wed, 14 Sep 2005 12:50:01 GMT

I have Office 97 Professional with the Upgrade edition of Office 2000 
Professional.  I cannot update because the upgrader cannot find the ms? file 
on either of the Office 2000 CDs.  What am I doing wrong?  I vaguely remember 
this problem in the past and never did find the answer.

Thank you.

Hi Lyne,

If you have Office 97 installed then the Office 2000 upgrade
CD should be able to find that.  Otherwise put your Office 97
CD in (not your Office 2000 CD) when it's looking for an upgrade
qualifying product.

1.Upgrade to Office 2003 from Office 97 - was from Office 95 to Office 2000

Milly (or Others),
Will the procedure you list below work for an upgrade from Office 97 to
Office 2003?  Here's my situation. I have new Win97 computer networked to my
old Win95 computer w/ working copy of Office 97. I also have an almost
complete copy of my Win95 C:drive on my Win97 H: partition. I have both CD
and DVD (which reads CDs) on Win97. I have the Upgrade Version of Office
2003 Pro. I know that if I install my old Office 97 on the WinXP, the
upgrade will work. I'd like not to do that. I'm not sure if the install
program might "accept" the Office 97 thru the network (mapped as P drive) or
via the H:\Win95copy\win95c\etc. I plan to launch the update from my E: CD
R/W. Would it be a good idea to put in my Office97 disk into the D: DVD CD
Rom (making sure to cancel the autostart that would try and setup Office97)?

If none of the above will work, let me see if I have the procedure that you
describe below correct: The Upgrade will say something like "can't find
qualifying product.." and at that point I take out my Office 2003 disk and
replace it with my Office 97 disk, then type something, and then replace the
Office 2003 Disk. BTW, I plan to do the COMPLETE installation of Office 03
Pro, but at this time I don't think I'll install the 2nd disk which has the
Business Contact Manager for MS Outlook, unless this is the only time to do
it. (I do maintain a large sking mail list, but not sure if the Cont. Mgr
will help that much.)

3.non OEM Office 97 full to Office 2000 Upgrade to Office 2007 Upgra

My old pc died.  I'd like to save $ and use my past Office products to 
reach/install Office 2007 upgrade on my new laptop.
I realize from other posts that Office 2007 will not recognize Office 97 full.
Will Office 2007 upgrade recognize Office 2000 upgrade to carry out the 
installation?
Or will I need to install Office 97, then upgrade to Office 2000, then 
upgrade to Office 2007?  (this would take quite a while).
TIA
