    Off 2007 beta destroys Off 2K (Office 2007)

    I downloaded and installed Office 2007. It destroyed my Office Pro 2k. Now when I try to reload my Off 2k it refuses to install. When I try to un-install Off 2k I get the error message

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

    How do I get to re-install my Off Pro 2k. Is there a registry key or something I can reset so that I can install my valid, legal copy of Off 2k? I have also tried to use the Restore point (the one I created prior to installing Office 2007) to no avail.

    You did backup your system before installing Office 2007 Beta 2 right? There's a reason it is called BETA. Have a look at Microsoft Office Online: Office Resource Kit Home Page. See Microsoft Office Assistance: Office Removal Wizard in particular.
