    installed OfficeXP-windows installer screen appear (OfficeXP)

    Hiya

    I'm not quiet sure which category to post this issue.

    I've installed OfficeXP on a pc to run all from the pc.
    Now each time I run an OfficeXP app eg WordXP, or PowerPointXP - the Windows installer screen is displayed & then the app opens up.

    Does this happen to anyone else?
    is there a way we can remove this Windows Installer screen?

    many thanks Diana

    Over the years, there have been many reports of this on the General Office Solutions board. It seems related to having multiple versions of Office on a machine. I don't remember the cure.

    Hi

    yes I do have muliple versions of office installed on my pc - Office97 & OfficeXP.
    On the microsoft knowledge base I found the following fix <!mskb=265194>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 265194<!/mskb>. I applied method 2 - the registry hack & this resolves the issue.

    many thanks Diana
