I recently repaired a corrupt profile on a PC running windows XP home by copying the contents of the broken users documents and setting folder to a the documents and settings folder on a new account that I created for them. This semmed to work fine, but when I tried to open office documents I witnessed the following error.
- Opening Word (for example) starts the windows installer.
- A dialog box then opens saying that the feature I am trying to use in on the disk Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Professional, insert the disc etc.etc. The particular feature it is looking for is DATA1.msi.
Since this is my girlfriends PC, and she does not know where the disk is I had to cancel at this point.
- The process then starts again even if I click cancel.
If I happen to hit cancel before the Windows installer asks me for the disk then Word/Excel/Powerpoint runs as normal. I get the same problem if I log in with other accounts on the PC aswell.
