installing Office 97 SR2 on Win XP (Office 97 SR2)
One of our members writes:
"How do I install Office 97 Pro and SR-1 on my WinXP Pro Toshiba 3000-S304? I have successfully installed MS Office 97 Pro with SR-1 built in. However, when I attempt to install SR-2, it first warns:
| Before continuing with a shared network installation, |note the following:
|Be sure setup is using the same copy of Shared Windows |that others will use, and that there is write access to |the Shared Windows folder.
|Users should not have access to the system during a |network installation.
I simply clicked OK, and next a dialogue Browse box appears asking where the .stf file is. I did a search, and found C:Program FilesMicrosof OfficeOfficeSetupoff97pro.stf, and navigated the Browse box to it.
It carries on briefly, then another dialogue Browse box appears requesting that I "Open INF for Patch". I cannot find what seems to be an appropriate INF file.
I have installed both SR-1 and SR-2 on another copy of Off97 Pro on Win95 and Win98 machines, as well as SR-2 on this SR-1 copy of Off97 with no glitches numerous times. I have always run the SR installations in quiet (using the: /q /c:"sr2patch /q" parameter that I have always used).
In WinXP, I am logged on as the default administrator when attempting this installation, as I was when I installed Off97 with SR-1.
I am new to dealing with network issues, so I am completely stumped. I have not been able to find specific instructions on the MS web site for installing Off97 on WinXP Pro. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated."
TIA for your help.
