    Cannot Install (XP)

    When I tried to install Office XP, Setup gave me the following error message:

    This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package.

    This is not a patch, it is an XP installation CD. I had XP installed prior and want to remove it, install 97, and then install XP so I could run them both. I had downloaded updates to XP prior to this. When I tried to use Add/Remove programs to uninstall XP, it gave me the same error message so I used Clean Sweep to remove it. Office 97 installed just fine but XP would not install. This is the same CD I used to originally install XP so I know it is not the CD.
