What exactly is home publishing 2000? Who makes it? Was it that Microsoft application the Publisher eventually replaced?

the php extension is now used predominantly in web publishing.

You might try cleaning the disk with warm, soapy water and patting it dry.

You might also consider copying the files from the cd to the harddrive....sometimes, you can get an install to work that way from a bad disk

I have tried to clean cd's to no avail.I am at a loss as to how to put all the files on hard drive when there is 6 cd's to put in.I have use the cd's that it calls for when I put something together.

How many files are we talking about?

Could you attach one so we could take a look?

Not necessary for it to be home publishing,but I did try Microsoft Publisher 2003,Works(mickeysoft)8,but they will not open the saved files.Not compatable I would guess.

Then it would help if you can list the file type, (ext) or attach a file to a post

Microsoft Home Publishing 2000 was the last version.

Similar products are:

Microsoft Picture It! Publishing 2001 Platinum Edition

Microsoft Picture It! Publishing 2002 Platinum Edition

Microsoft Picture It! Publishing Platinum 5th Anniversary edition

Do you have any suggestions as to what type to save them as so they can be used with the program that I have previously mentioned?

When you click save as, use the drop down menu to see what the options are, to something which will run with a programme you have would be good

This is for a trial version which runs out at the tail end of 2006, which could then leave you having to buy it or be in the same position with regard to being unable to open the files you have, however, it may open the files you have with the option to use save as

http://www.microsoft...free_trial.aspx

It is an 118MB file

Home Publishing went to Microsoft Picture It which moved on to Microsoft Digital Imaging Suite, that retails at 130 USD so you could look for versions of Picture It on Amazon once you confirm it will work with the files you have
