    I am trying to Detect and Repair a synchronization problem with my Palm
    Centro and Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 Outlook. I am
    receiving the following: "A required installation file SKU011.CAB could not
    be found" I browse to the original Installation Source as required and
    select the actual file itself, and receive the following error message: "
    Error 25091. Setup failed to change the source." with options of retry and
    cancel beneath. I have attempted this numerous times, and to no avail. Can
    you help???

    If you do not have the installation cd and want to solve this issue
    follow these steps: (works most of the time with all sku.cab files)

    1. Click on start==>run==>type "excel /s" without quotations and click
    ok.

    2. Once Excel is up in safe mode with the error message in front, hold
    down ctrl+Alt+Delete keys on your keyboard to bring the task manager up.

    3. Click on the processes tab==>look for msiexec.exe (only the one next
    to your user name), click on it and end the process.

    4. Excel should be running without an error message now==>close Excel in
    safe mode==>reopen it one more time in safe mode to check if it is
    opening with no error message.

    5. Close Excel /s and open Excel normally, it should work fine.

    The above solution was previously supplied by swaidan@NOSPAM-gmail.com
