This afternoon I tried to reinstall Publisher 2003 from a CD and repeatedly got the message "Installation ended prematurely because of an error".
I have tried to find an answer to this on Google, but the few times I have found something that looks a bit like this I can't really understand the advice given.
(I am still unable to install the following Windows updates by the way:
KB2284695 - This one is a Publisher update.)
Please can anyone help?
