    Reinstall of Excel (XP)

    I recently had to reinstall the XP operating system and Office. When I start Excel it appears to be installing something each and every time a new session of Excel is started.

    Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John

    For possible solutions see annoyances.org

    This error is often associated with having more than 1 version of Office installed.

    Tony,

    Thanks for the suggestion. It was related to the install wizard. I uninstalled Office XP and then proceeded to install it once again this time using a custom install as opposed to the "typical install"

    Regards,
    John
