Not sure if I'm responding in the right place- but I have used the original disk already and it did not resolve the .cab problem. I just don't have the disk in my possession right now.

I fixed it before without the disk, and it was because I came across a posting by someone who went through this- who also could not resolve this shu011.cab problem by installing again with disk....

did your computer come with office installed? if this is the case you're getting this message because the original install was an OEM install...and therefore you cannot reinstall with a new copy of office....you either need to find your original disk....or get every trace of the original off of your system...which isn't likely to happen

I have this exact message and it wants the original CD. But here's a little about the background.

Okay, here's what I did. I did a complete installation the MS Office 2003 to this PC. Now when the user logs in and try to run any Office application, this installation error would popup. The error message goes something like this:

Error 1309. Error reading from file D:\PA561401.CAB

Why do I kept getting this error under a user's profile? It works fine under Administrator. How do I prevent this from happening to any user who logs into this PC? I have the original CD but I do not want pop this CD in everytime there is a new user who logs into this PC. Any idea on how to resolve this problem? Help is much appreciated.

I always choose to delete the installation files. So how do I make sure that Office will fully install? So it is recommended to know delete the installation files? Will these consume a lot of my hard drive space?

i haven't noticed any drastic drive loss from leaving the install files in place...usually it makes things easier..because office installs certain parts of the software on first use by the user...when you do a full office install choose the custom setup...and make sure that all portions of the office suite are set to "run from this computer" or "run from my computer" not sure the exact wording..

So when I choose "Complete Install", that is the not the same thing as custome install and manually choose to run from this computer option? It seemed odd that "Complete" does not seem to be complete when Office is missing some installation for other users than the local admin.
