I have Microsoft 2000 premium. When I try to launch work or excel I get a “download windows installation” screen. It then takes a while to load then it says, “an error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly. Please run setup and repair to resolve this application” If I push cancel the program then launches and I am able to use it with out any problems. I did want the program told me to do, still no luck. However, this is annoying. Is there any way I can fix this? I do not have the installation cd. I am using windows xp with server pack 2. If someone could help me resolve my issues I would greatly appreciate it.

The 'download' Window is actaully referring to the process of copying or 'downloading' files from the Office CD, not from the internet in this case. A feature is missing or corrupted so Office setup needs the CD to correct it. Unfortunately, with no CD it's difficult to see how you can prevent this from happening, short of uninstalling Office completely and finding a replacement.

Three I can think of, all of which can open and create Word 2000 documents:

Free: IBM Lotus Symphony Suite: http://symphony.lotu...phony/home.jspa (Note this is beta software - still being tested, so expect some bugs)

Free: OpenOffice.org: http://www.openoffice.org/

Not free: StarOffice ($70US/around £35 Sterling): http://www.sun.com/s...ffice/index.jsp
