    Office 2000/Photo Editor (SR3)

    I'm running Office 2000 SR3 and want to use the version of Photo Editor that was included with Office 97. (There are subtle differences that are important to me.)

    I can get it to work, but when I start PhotoEd, I get an error message: "registration/unregistration failed" The Off2K version include a .dll - peintl.dll - that the Off97 does not.

    Does anyone have a clue about how to get this to work the way it's supposed to?

    First of all, it is not a recommended configuration, so there isn't simple "to get this to work the way it's supposed to".

    Woody said,
    "Do yourself a favor. If you want to run an old version of Office (and
    you're talkin' to a guy who has five different versions of Office going
    at any given moment), get an old machine and run a small network.
    You'll have many fewer headaches in the long run."

    However, couple of weeks later Word MVP Beth Melton said,
    "I'd say your initial advice was good for beginning to average users.
    Other than for developing or testing purposes I don't see a reason why
    normal users need more than one version of Office installed. After I
    think about it a little more there are minor issues I encounter
    occasionally with integration although they are easily rectified. For
    example there have been a couple times when I received an error message
    along the lines of "unexpected version" but after starting the correct
    application so the Registry entries are recreated it isn't a problem. I
    think mid-average to experienced users could easily figure something like
    this out without panicking. "

    Try to install Office 97 and 2000 (or part of them) in different folders and register DLLs manually.
    Syntax is:
    regsvr32 { /u } { /s } { /n } { /i { :cmdine }} dllname
    /u - Unregister server
    /s - Silent; display no message boxes
    /i - Call DllInstall passing it an optional {cmdline }; when used with /u calls dll uninstall
    /n - do not call DllRegister Server; this option must be used with /i
