Having a strange problem with office 2K, I just moved the network from an older server running NT 4.0 to a newer server running W2K advanced server. For some reason when the users attempt to run word, excel, access they get the Office Installer screen that points to the old server looking for some files. The only change to the users machines is logging onto a new server. Other then un-installing, which I tried, anyone know how to get the install new component screen to stop appearing?

:mad: :confused:

Do any of these fit your scenerio?


Have office 97 installed as well?
(no fix)

Install office 2000 from a shared drive / disk image on your old server?
(uninstall / install from a local copy)

Install office 2000 on the client machines on top of W2K whilst not logged on as admin?
(uninstall office 2000, log in as admin & reinstall office)

hope that helps, or helps at helping

Methinks you could get the path it's looking at from the error message and then search for that string in the registry. Change that string in the registry to the appropriate place on the new server/drive.
