Hi,

I have been experiencing some difficulty while trying to reinstall Microsoft Office and was wondering if somebody has had to deal with this before or can offer some pointers. While reinstalling Microsoft Office 2000 Premium, there seem to be some problems with the msiexec.exe file, which causes installation to terminate prematurely. The error file referes to oleaut32.dll as a cause. The OS is Windows XP.

Would appreciate any assistance. Look forward to hearing from someone somewhere ...

Regards,
JSK

Remove Office

Download and run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility

Use it to remove Office Installation files only

Run Microsoft Update

Clean the Office Discs carefully

Install Office, select custom / complete install, run all from my computer if you have the room

Hi Keith,

Thank you for the message. I followed the steps that you had mentioned, but the problem persists. I will try and contact the vendor as soon as I can find my old receipt and / or microsoft sales.

Thank you once again for your prompt response.

Regards,
JSK
