    Access 2003 Installation Quits (2003)

    I do not have Office 2003, but have been asked for help by an associate. Below is his description of the problem. Can you help us with this problem?

    I tried both these actions, but got the same response. When attempting to run Access I get a progress bar with the message displayed: "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003" and "Gathering required information". The progress bar goes about halfway and pauses for a couple of seconds. Then the "Gathering required information" clears and the progress bar finishes across the panel. The panel then closes without starting Access (or anything else, for that matter). It is important to note that this is being done in Windows Server 2003, not XP. Thanks for any assistance.
