    Did you uninstall any Office Trial & Activation Assistant, then reboot,
    before installing your paid for version?

    Hi. .I am still unable to install..

    I uninstalled the trial version of Office that was installed by HP on this
    new PC. and rebooted.

    The same following error messgae comes up when installing 2003.
    Ãnstallation error: File not found

    A required unstallation file CS561404.CAB could not be found

    Original Installation source required:
    If you installed Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003 from a CD, please
    insert you CD ..etc
    Once you have located your installation source click OK.

    So I clicked OK....nothing.

    I find the CAB file in the CD file list...still nothing.

    Your help would be really apreciated.

    Thanks Steve

    Remove and reinstall Office 2003
    ======================


    1. Download and install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

    <http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/9/D/E9D80355-7AB4-45B8-80E8-983A48D5E1BD/m
    sicuu2.exe>

    2. After you install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, click Start
    menu-> All
    Programs-> Windows Install Clean Up.

    3. Highlight Microsoft Office 2003 entry in the list and then click Remove.
    Quit
    the Utility.

    Note: If you have got any other old or redundant office entries or other
    Office
    stand alone products such as FrontPage, Visio, OneNote, etc in the list,
    please
    remove them together.

    4. Close all applications.

    5. Click Start menu-> Run, type "regedit" (without the quotation marks) in
    the Open
    box and press Enter.

    6. Expand the registry tree on the left pane and locate the following two
    registry
    keys:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office

    7. Right-click on this key and click Delete to delete those keys.

    8. Open Windows Explorer, and then browse to the "C:/Program Files" folder

    If it exists, rename the "Microsoft Office" to "Microsoft Office OLD"
    If it exists, rename "OfficeUpdate" to "OfficeUpdateOLD"
    If it exists, rename "OfficeUpdate11" to "OfficeUpdate11 OLD"

    9. Click Start menu-> Run, type "%Temp%" (without the quotation marks) in
    the Open
    box and press Enter.

    10. Empty the %Temp% folder.

    Note: If some files can't be deleted, please skip them, which don't
    influence the
    result of the troubleshooting.

    11. Empty the Recycle Bin.


    12. Restart your computer and install Office 2003.




    I hope that this helps resolve your issue.

    Regards,

    Rick

    Try copying the CD contents to a temporary folder on the C: drive and
    then run the install from ther.

    Hi DL

    I have followed all instructions to the letter, and it is still coming up
    with the same error message. Looks like I am going to have to pay someone to
    do it for me. Thanks for your help anyway. Cheers..Steve
