    Viewing problems with IE & Google Maps &Sharepoint (2000/2003/2007)

    For some time now I've had a problem with IE and viewing Google Maps and SHarePoint/SharePOrtal sites. The problem occurs the same with both but since more people have most llikley been to Google Maps verses SharePoint/Portal sites I'll use the Google Maps as the example.

    When I first naviagte to the Google Maps page, a new window titled 'Microsoft Office 2000 Professional' pops ups with the following:

    "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office 2000 Professional"

    A few seconds later a second Window pops up title 'MIcrosoft Office 2000 Professional' with this message:

    "Error 1706. No valid source could be found for prodcut Miccrosoft Office 2000 Professional. The Windows Installer can not continue.

    I click the only button on the Window, the 'OK' button and the process repeats with the same 2 Windows. After that the page loads and I continue as normal.
    This happens only when I first load a Google Map URL. I can continue in Google Maps and not recieve the error. If I leave Google Maps and the naviagte back the process repeats.

    Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and more importantlt how to stop ot? It's not too much of a pain with Google Maps but when navigating to a SharePoint/Portal page it is because I work with a SharePoint/POrtal site (one of my clients) on a daily basis and because I am frequently going thru the main page in the Portal I am continuoously dealing with this issue.


    Additional info:
    I am running various products from the Office 2000, 2003 & 20007 suites. Some products I use have multiple versions installed like Excel. I have Excel 2000, 2003 & 2007 installed. This is because the product I support works with all three bersions and in order to work with clients I need all 3 versions. I've ran multiple versions of Office programs in the past without this issue. It started before I installed Office 2007 and after installing Office 2003.

    Thanks

    Have a look at this Knowledge Base search . If I read your post correctly, you installed Office 2007 and then installed Office 2003? The proper order of installation is oldest to newest. I also have multiple versions of some Office programs, but I did install them in the correct order and I don't have the problem to which you refer.

    Re: Viewing problems with IE & Google Maps &Sharep

    Microsoft had shipped Office Web Controls (OWC) with some versions of Office. They also could be installed from an intranet site under certain circumstances. Perhaps you have some out-of-sync OWC controls on your computer? Unfortunately, I don't have a good sense of how to track that down. Perhaps they would have an entry in Add/Remove programs, or would be listed among the ActiveX "objects" in IE's options dialog.

    UPDATE:

    I had some time and was going to revisit this issue so I loaded up the Google Maps URL so as to get the err msg I nromally do when I realized the thing had gone away. I no longer have the problem I originally reported. I've made no changes to Offcie that I know of nor have I installed/uninstalled and office related technologies other then installing whatever Service Packs/Hot Fixes related to office that the WIndows Update would automatically download.

    I'm not companing this has happened, just suprised.

    FYI.... For the post regaring installing office versions out of order, Thansk for the Google link however I did install Office in the correct order adn was unable to find anything about this issue in the Google search. I have re-read my orginal post serval times and have no idea how you got from it that I had installed Office versions out of order.

    "have no idea how you got from it that I had installed Office versions out of order"

    And that's why I ASKED "If I read your post correctly, you installed Office 2007 and then installed Office 2003?"

    OK I just read it again and very slow this time and no where in the original post did I say I installed Office 2007 and then installed Office 2003. I think I know why you think I did and it;s because you're changing the tense of a word in my last sentence.

    the last sentence I said it happened before I installed Office 2007 and after installing Office 2003.

    No, I didn't assume that you installed them in the incorrect order. And no, I didn't change "the tense of a word in [your] last sentence". Again, let me point out that I ASKED "If I read your post correctly, you installed Office 2007 and then installed Office 2003?" (Note the question mark at the end of my sentence).

    Obviously you are upset and I apologize for asking for clarification. I'll try not to be as obtuse in the future. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
