Before upgrading to Win XP I ran the upgrade advisor. One of my Helpful Information items was that Microsoft Outlook would have to be reinstalled, after Windows XP setup is complete. I upgraded to XP without any problems, except that the Office application does not reinstall Outlook. It ask for the Office disk, and then in reading the first disk comes up with a 1305 disk reading error and cannot find a file. I have cleaned the CD and I can't get it to work. Any suggestion, or work around?

Failing that, take Outlook off via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and reinstall again from the CD.

I tried removing Outlook and reinstalling Microsoft Office. Still have the same problem. Had to reinstall a disk image to get back to the place I was before. What does the XP upgrade do to Outlook that it does not do to the other applications in Microsoft Office?
