Hello,

I am having issues installing Microsoft Office 97. I keep getting this error message:

olemsg.dll was unable to register itself in the system registry

Microsoft Office was not able to install correctly.


I did a google search on this issue, and found where it states to go to RUN, type win.ini and in front of load= and run= to place an (:) in front of each one, and then reboot the system for it to take effect.

I did that and it still does not work. I tried to remove what is downloaded from the CD in the ADD/Remove Programs, but when I tried doing that, I got this error message:

The setup Configuration file 'C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~4OFFICE\SETUP\Off97Pro.STF` is missing or corrupted.

So I'm at a loss and could really use some help. Got any ideas?

Thanks a bunch

Hi Blondie

This problem may occur when you attempt to install Microsoft Office on a computer on which other programs, including memory-resident and anti-virus programs, are running.

Hi Baho,

Thanks for trying to help, but if you read my post, it states that I have already tried that fix.

But now I was able to download the software from the CD, but for some reason I have to have the CD in the Drve to even use the program.

This is messed up and its making me pull out my hair...

So now, new issue with same program

dsenette, Hi and thanks for trying to help.

Well I tried to go through the ADD/REMOVE and then it asked me to insert the CD, but then I got this error message:

ACMSETUP caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0167:bff9db61.

So I'm going to try to see if I can get it out of the system another way...

Ok, back again dsenette...

I went into programs to see if there was a Uninstall button, but there was not one, and when I click on the Word program this is what pops up.

Problem w/ shortcut

The drive or networkconnection that the shortcut 'Microsoft Word.Ink' refers to is unavailable.
Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the Network resources is available, and then try again.

:) *SIGH*

So now I dont even know how to get rid of the thing or what to do next. This program is what I use for my busines flyer, and I cant print or do touch ups to my flyer without this program.


*See's a window with my puters name on it* :tazz:

I just wanted to let you know that I finally got Microsoft Word working.

It only took 4 reformats, and 4 reinstalls of the MS Word, but Word is up and running like it is suppose to .

So that was my fix... :tazz:



Thanks for the help
