    Opening Office2000 disc1 and 2 (Me O/S/office 2000)

    Had new Cd-Rom installed.In process, Tech could not get O/S to identify and read new CD-Rom,so he restored my Me O/S.In doing so he screwed up my .msi files.(I believe I had Microsoft Windows installer version 1.0 on the original disc and he used a disc at random in his shop to do reinstall and I think it had version 1.01 on it).When I got machine home, "Microsoft Windows update site" wouldn't scan correctly nor would "Microsoft Office Update site" scan my office files.Microsoft had me download"Windows installer version 2.0 and everything works fine now.All scan sites work fine.
    Knowing all this, now I can't get my "Office 2000 Cd1 or Cd 2 to open.I believe it has something to do with the Missing ,changed or reloacated "Windows installer.Msi Files on Cd or some such situation.All I can get is Folder and files view.(See Attachments).Office 2000 Cd's I 'm sure are O.K. not damaged,just won't open.
    Would anyone out there be able to help my situation?Don't know what to do.

    Try double clicking on "setup.exe".

    Hi John,how stupid can one person be? Me that's how.
    Before you responded I was thinking,"why not try Setup.exe" when folders and files open?
    Being an old timer and just a home user,I wasn't sure, but after you said try it I did and the Disc's opened beautifully.
    Some times I wonder how you knowledgable guys put up with us Dummies!
    Thanks a million Rebel,Regards,

    Glad to help. No question is a "dumb" question if you don't know the answer Jim.
