    Windows Installer-Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

    My system was working OK with Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Then out of the blue (possibly after running some other programs which I ain't sure) the following Windows Installer's message is displayed whenever I run Office:
    "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition"
    I have to click the Cancel button (sometimes more than once) to close the popup windows. Office run perfectly after that though.
    I started my Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and it runs OK without a hitch.
    Can someone tell me why, or point me to a web site where I can get further info?
    Thanks in anticipation.

    Thanks for your help, John.

    Microsoft said in the the knowledgebase that the dialog box kicked in on starting Visual Studio 2005. My Visual Studio 2005 started fine. It is on starting Microsoft Office 2000 that the Windows Installer popped in.

    The article also mentioned that it was due to improper installation of Visual Studio 2005, resulting in a problematic mso.dll. I checked the properties of the mso.dll file in the stated folder. Mine is a Microsoft Office XP with version 10.0.3501. But I am using MSO 2000. Is there something not quite right? I do not try repairing Visual Studio 2005 as it is working flawlessly. Shall I repair MSO 2000 instead? Any pointer before I plunge in?

    Nope. Maybe someone else might jump in.
