    Windows Installer Error

    Hi, I started this post in the Outlook forum as I was making changes to my pst file. In the course of this, I went into add/remove programs to click "change" on my Office 2003. It gave me this error that I thought I had solved months ago (I guess not [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Windows Installer

    The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

    Will someone please remind me again about using the LISTool. I use that app to fix this issue, right? I ran it, clicked on Office 2003, it went through the process but when I go back to "change" Office, I get the same error over again.

    Thanks in advance!

    This question belongs to "General MA Office Sutie"

    LISTool is far from perfect. It copies only CAB files which are already used in your installation.
    If you want to use your Local Installation Source for adding features not installed previously, you have to copy your entire MS Office Installation CD to your LIS folder (for example, C:MSOCacheAll Users90000409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9 ). Then you can point your Office Installer to it (open Windows Registry, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftOffice11.0Regis tration{90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} (or another key corresponding to your Office CLSID) and edit SmartSourceDir key pointing it to LIS folder.

    No need to repost. If necessary, one of the moderators will move the entire thread.

    Oh hey, no problem. It still isn't fixed yet. I'm going to post this on annoyances.org or maybe just live with it.
