  • Windows Installer error when opening Excel 2003

    Until a few days ago my Office 2003 worked flawlessly and each program in it worked just fine. It all happened this week, everytime I click Excel file or the Excel shortcut from programs menu the "Windows Installer" window pops up, I receive a message to insert Office 2003 CD and then there's an error for a missing .CAB file.

    Ofcourse I cannot update Office so I have updates message in my taskbar saying that updates are waiting. Everytime I install them there's an error at the end.

    I do manage to open Excel if I go to Office directory in my computer, ofcourse the Windows Installer window pop up again but I can cancel and open files to work with.

    Can someone please help? I searched all over the net and couldn't find a solution.
