Hi,

Can you plse help!

I tried to instal Office 2008 and think that I inadvertently said yes somewhere when I thought I was asked if I wanted the previous version of office deleted, but stopped the process when I saw that it wanted to delete TextEdit, which I want.

Now when I try to instal again, I get this error: There is no default application specified to open the document "Office Installer".

Thanks a lot.

What type of file is it? .pkg?

Are you sure you have Installer.app on your computer? If not, you may need to reinstall it from the OS disc.

Hi Odal,

Thanks for your quick reply!

Sorry, I don't know what a .pkg file is, but what is sure is that I don't have Installer.app on my computer,
so agree with you that I'll have to reinstall from the OS disc.

Will do it and let you know if there's anything else.

I would recommend downloading Pacifist to extract just what you need (Installer's package) from the OS disc. Otherwise you'd have to do a complete OS reinstall.
