Installing Office 2000 on Windows 7 - unresponsive!
2 replies , 1/16/2010, 12:49:01 AM
I have already uninstalled the Office 2007 on my new laptop and wish to install Office 2000 which I had purchased previously. I install it and it says it's successful but when I try to open Microsoft Word (which is the only program I actually want), the page opens and then doesn't respond. I've uninstalled and installed it a number of times but the same thing keeps coming up. I don't particular wish to buy a new copy of Office. Anyone know why this is happening? All I want to do is use Microsoft Word!

Actually, my Mom has my old Gateway,Pentium 1 from when Windows 95 came out. It has worked fine for her limited needs. Now, though, she is trying to get new internet service and is having download problems because her system is Windows 95. I understand 95 is no longer supported by Microsoft, but I wonder if there is any newer product she can upgrade to. I would hate for her to have to buy new software or a new computer. Thanks.

Same Window/Additional Window

Previously, when I opened multiple excel files they would display each in their own window so I could shuffle between files. Now they all open in the same excel window and I have to minimize one, maximize the other or keep them both at 80% and click from one to the other. How can I get them to open in a new window again? I've done the folder options/file types/xls/open in seperate window thing but that doesn't work. any suggestions? thanks.

Strange colours im windows

Whenever excel shows a window to ask me something the text appears as black on gray and the rest of the inside of the window is white. This makes the window look wrong. This only appears in excel 2002 and not in word or powerpoint. If I login as another user of the same computer the problem has disappeared. I've tried reinstalling office and changing the screen. This really puzzles me and I hope someone can hel me with this.

Windows Address Book - Outlook vs. Outlook Express
1 replies , 9/23/2008, 6:01:40 PM
I'm working or a Word Addin and want it to read (enumerate) the user's address book. I've got some code working to enumerate the WAB and other code to enumerate the new (Vista-only) Windows contacts. But in both cases what I get is the address book from Windows Mail or Outlook Express, but nothing from the Outlook address book. Does Outlook not publish its address book via these standard mechanisms? Does Outlook perhaps have to be the "primary" email program before it publishes its address book? Any other hints why I don't get its address book? -- Scott McPhillips [VC++ MVP]

If I scroll the window that contains a Visio 2003 drawing, the window is not repainted properly. Parts of the drawing are missing and the client portion of the window (where the drawing is displayed) is all chopped up. If I minimize the window and then restore it, all is well again until the next time I scroll the window. I am using Visio Professional 2003 SP2. Any idea why this is happening?

How do I keep Module windows closed?
0 replies , 9/14/2006, 4:08:10 PM
Windows XP Access 2003 I am repeatedly having to close module windows when I start up the Visual Basic Editor. Some stay closed, others don't. When I'm finished editing a module, what do I have to do to close the window and keep it closed? I've tried various combinations of saving then closing, but haven't hit the sequence of steps that works. And since I'm not taking notes every time I close a module window, I don't know what I did differently such that some of them do remain closed. Is there a setting somewhere that I can choose, "Don't open module windows on startup."?

Esteemeed Developers, Please do allow me thank You in advance for your sincere guidances. I am facing problems while Putting Excel Chart 10.0 Component onto VC++ ..NET Windows Forms. I am developing an windows application on "Windows Forms (.NET)" by using Microsoft Visual C++ .NET v2003 Standard SDE on the Windows 2000 Pro Turkish Edition O.S. that includes Microsft XP Profesiional (Office 2002). First, I created a project at "Visual C++ .NET v2003" with "Windows Forms (.NET)" template. Then, from "Tools > Add/Remove Toolbox Items > COM Components > Microsoft Office Chart 10.0" , I added the Office Chart. When my project is at DesignView, I double-clicked on Office Chart 10.0 component to put onto my windows form. Then, SDE started building automatically and It added below 6 items into "References" of project: 1) AxOWC10 2) MSComctlLib 3) ADODB 4) MSDATASRC 5) stdole 6) OWC10 After Automatical-Building finished, it gave the below error: ---> " error result returned from 'AxImp.exe" . Operating system and Office XP Pro have the latest updates. I re-installed Office XP Pro again. But, problem could not be removed. I faced with same error message, when I install the trial versions of some Components that are downloaded from internet. My intention to use the Office Chart for showing some parameters on it periodically by updating the series.. I am requesting You to guide me solving this problem. Have a Healthy and Peaceful Days.

Missing Licenses Office and Windows
4 replies , 7/13/2005, 9:51:01 AM
Hi, We have missing licenses on Office and Windows. All our PCs are using Win2000 & Office 2000. The guy before me has, on some new bought PCs where XP was preinstalled, formatted and has Win2000 installed. There weren’t even CDs with the new bought PCs from which I could reinstall XP Pro. And the most product keys on the PC don’t match with any of the product keys of the labels on the CD cover. I have many OEM Office XP CDs and OEM Win2K Pro CDs. I do not know how I could find the right PC with the corresponding CD, because even the stickers on the PC cover have been removed. We are a group with 4 companies and we have also System Builder CDs. But I don't know how to hadle that. Thanks

Mac Office 2004 with Windows Office 2003?
2 replies , 11/28/2006, 6:53:17 PM
After getting a new mac for work, I put Mac Office 2004 on it to work with our windows Office 2003. I soon realize it didn't work together. If I have a document open and one of the windows users tries to open it they will get an error, but when I close the document it works for them no problem. If I have a document open and a mac user tries to open it, they will be allowed to open it in read-only mode. Also if a Windows user has a document open I can open it in read-only mode as well. So either something isn't set up right on my end or Mac Office 2004 doesn't allow Windows office 2003 to open documents in read-only mode. If anyone has any clues to how to fix or if it is a bug let me know. I have been searching the web for something about this and have found nothing about it.

Windows Installer

I'm running Office 2000 on a 98 machine. Every time I open MS Binder the Windows Installer pops up. Eventually Binder opens, but it takes a while. I've tried uninstalling it, reinstalling all of Office, running the detect and repair for just Binder, and running Windows Updates. None of these has changed anything. How do I stop the Installer from booting every time?!
