    Lost Office set-up (2000)

    I had to reinstall Windows 98, from my restore CD which includes Works 2000. Works 2k has disabled my Office 2000 installation. I understand from a Knowledge Base article that, if I can uninstall Works 2000, I can delete a couple of Registry Keys to reactivate Office 2000. However, when I use Add/Remove Programs to try and remove Works all it does is attempt to install it and requests the Works CD. I don't have a Works CD, only the restore CD that came with my computer. How can I uninstall Works 2000? Or what amendments to the Registry do I need to make to get my computer to recognise my Office installation? Andy.

    Hi Andy,

    Some uninstall processes do ask for the CD and lead you to think you will be installing. I would suggest you insert your restore CD when asked during the pseudo install and you should be able to perform the uninstall at that stage.

    Cheers, Bob
    Regards,
    Bob

    Sorry, I should have mentioned that I tried inserting my Restore CD but it didn't consider it as the required installation disk.
