  • Windows Installer has to reinstall excel 2003

    Whenever I access Excel for the first time each day, the Windows Installer window comes up and installs Excel. I have tried to reinstall Office 2003 from my Office CD, but get the

    'error 1402 Setup cannot open the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Setup\
    MigrationDLLs' message.

    Can anyone help?

    Sounds to me like your profile's trashed. Rename your profile folder, and restart your machine and log in; this will create a new profile*. Then set about copying essential parts of your profile over to the new profile such as favourites, Outlook data, etc.

    can help with that.

    *A new profile means you get the "tellytubbyland" background, and everything resets to zero - so DO make sure you RENAME your old profile, NOT delete it!!!
