Errors Running Registration After Office 2000 Install

Question: Errors Running Registration After Office 2000 Install

I just installed Office 2k on two machines. Both running Windows 2000 also. The one machine that everything is working fine was installed with FAT files system. Thats the ONLY difference between the two machines. The one using NTFS does not work correctly. When trying to run Word/Excel, etc.. it comes up with the registration prompt. I click "yes" and get the following error "The Registration wizard cannot run because the system information it requires is either unavailable or incorrect" Which means so far my Office installation has been unusable. I am also unable to run/setup Outlook because it tells me I need to have admin access (which I am logged in under the main admin) I think both errors are because of the same problem somewhere. If anyone knows what is causing this or how to fix it please let me know!

Phooey! I had trouble with my Office 2007 and finally gave up on it, switching to LibreOffice. As might have been predicted, I'm quite frustrated with that on (although, give it credit, it *does* work!).

So I pulled out my Office 2000 CDs. I've had that on a Windows 7 machine before and am pretty sure it ought to be installable. But when I try, it fiddles and diddles for awhile and the starts with the error messages. After each, I clicked ignore (just to see what would happen) which took me to the next and finally culminated in a can't install-fatal error message.

There were four 1401 errors thusly: cannot create key ... be sure you have access ...

And then two 1406 errors: could not write value FileName to key ...

Then one 1402 error: could not open key ...

And finally, the fatal error: installation ended prematurely because of an error.

I have no idea where to start. Could my uninstalling Office 2007 have broken something? Do I need to uninstall LibreOffice before attempting this installation? Would it be smarter to expend my rapidly depleting energies re-installing Office 2007 ... seek help with its errors if necessary? I liked Office 2000 but I'll take the easiest route to get working again.

Thanks oh so much for any help.


Answer:Can't install Office 2000; seven errors then fatal error message

Office 2000 is getting pretty old now & is a security risk as MS don't supply updates or security protection any longer, so it would be best to reinstall Office 2007 again. Also you might experience problems with getting any documents & spreadsheets etc. you already have in Office 2007 to work in Office 2000.

Firstly you need to make sure that Office 2007 is completely uninstalled before you reinstall it again. To do that refer to this website.

It does not matter if I click No or Yes. The file (Word or Excel) closes down and takes me back to the folder where the file was stored. How do I get rid of this demon and work on my files?

Can I upgrade Office 2000 to Office XP, while still running Windows 2000?

I could use some of the features of Office XP, and would really like to retain my Windows 2000 environment. Do you think I could make this upgrade in Office?


Answer:Can I upgrade Office 2000 to Office XP, while still running Windows 2000?

Office XP can run on Windows 2000. Even though the operating systems and office suites have the same naming convention, that doesn't mean that they have to match up (Windows 2000-Office 2000, Windows XP-Office XP).

I have been getting some strange errors when using office 2000. It has worked fine for me for years, but this week I started getting some errors. For example when trying to save a document in word if I select save as I get" word has insufficent memory to perform this function". When using excel it will not even let me select the save as option, it is "grayed out". It is not just when I am trying to save a doc but for example if I select tools the options I cant. Options is "grayed out". This has me a bit puzzled and confused so any suggestions would be great.

Answer:Office 2000 Memory errors!


Close Word and find the file called on your hard drive and delete it.

Close Excel and find the folder call XLSTART on your hard drive and remove/delete any files that are in it.

See if that helps. I've seen these issues alot since the nimda virus and fear that it is creating problems. Have you run a virus scan with most recent dat files lately?

Hi, I had the same VB errors popping up in Word 2000, I changed the name of my, and deleted any files in the start up folder. Once I did that my word program worked fine and does not have any error messages upon startup. However, when I run my Winfax pro and attatch a word doc, it takes a really long time, and the .dll error message below comes up several times, and it just stalls, it opens a wierd word window, but cannot go any further with it. Now I am getting, (I did receive this error message before as well,) "OLEAUT32.DLL is out of date. This requires a newer version." I am getting this message in Access now. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2000 twice, and the error still remains. The VB error message that was accompaning the .dll error is not there now. What is going on?

I am at my wits end! Please help!

While removing Corel WordPerfect Office 2000, using their uninstall feature, I received the following message: Windows Installer "Incorrect Command Line Parameter" V2.00.2601. Portions of this software are based in part on the work of the independent JPEG group. Then it asked if I would like to continue, which I did. What does this mean?

Since then, I have had two occurrances where everything froze and I got an errors from IE. I could not close the message boxes, not even using ACD. I had to kill the power and scan. I don't know if this is related to the error that I received while removing Corel WP Office 2000 or not.

HI all,

We have a problem where 1 user is trying to run an app and is getting the error
The Win16 Subsystem was unable to enter Protected Mode

Now Autoexec.nt and DOSx.exe are both present in the system32 folder. The path is correct.

Running as local admin, the application launches without a problem. Logged back in as the user and still the same error.
Recreated the users profile and the error remains. Changing the users settings to admin and she managed to launch the app.

Now we don't want to be giving out admin rights just to enable users to log on to this one app.

Most of the suggestions I have seen in a google search are machine specific. Having local admin doesn't wouldn't address the suggestions I have seen.

I am getting the following error when I try to reinstall a custom setup office XP install on a windows 2000 machine.

"OFFXP: Setup Detects Office XP Running When You Attempt to Install Office XP"

I had the uninstall the office xp on this machine through add/remove programs because it was crashing alot. The custom install works fine on all other windows 2000 and xp machines.

I found the following error in MS knowledgebase
article 292497 (I can't post the link because I'm a new member)

It says to to hit ignore. If I hit ignore it does install but it doesn't install with the correct options for the custom install. (I have it set to not install outlook and it installs outlook, etc.) Obviously its not following the custom install.

Any ideas? I believe something is left on the pc from office when it was installed. I even ran the Removal Wizard on the Office XP Resource kit. It is supposed to remove everything left from previous versions. However, it must be missing something because I am still getting that error when I try to reinstall Office XP that is described above.

I still have both versions of Office on my PC, and most applications are still in 97. I don't want to convert them yet, since very few users at my company have 2000 yet, so I have tried to associate the extensions to Office 97. Yet as soon as I use any Office2000 application, it automatically changes the association back to 2000, and the next time I double-click on an office file, it brings it up in 2000.

Is there any way I can specify in a shortcut's Properties Target that the file must open using a particular version of the software. For instance C:\Program Files\Office97\Access.exe "Database.MDB" or something like that?

Thanks much!

Tried all disc options of reinstall, repair, add, etc. to no avail. (Outlook is displayed on Add/Delete with red cross!) Aware MS Technet states "Office Outlook 2007 cannot coexist with previous version of Outlook on the same computer". Removed outlook.exe (2003) but still no advance.

I am trying to install microsoft word on an older laptop from my works 2000 CDs. The laptop meets the requirements needed to do this. There is 1.7GB of free space on the harddisk. But when I try to run the works installer, it won't even open. I get a message saying there is not enough disk space to run it. So I attempted to bypass it and go directly to the word installer (all I really want is word). But when I run that, I get an error saying that the installer is not a valid installer and to contact microsoft. It's obviously valid, it's off the microsoft CD. And of course, contacting microsoft is not an option. I refuse to pay them money to ask a question when I already paid money for the CD to begin with. I tried to download and run an installer patch from microsoft, thinking perhaps my windows installer needed updating. But when I ran that, I got an error saying the program performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. I'm out of ideas. Please help!

I am working on a machine that is running Windows 95c and has a copy of Microsoft Office 97 and Outlook 98 up to SR2. There was only Word and Excel installed and they needed Access 97 added. I went to Add/Remove in control panel and put the Office 97 CD into the drive. As it was scanning the hard drive for previous installations it popped up a message stating: "Your previous install of Office 97 was not installed completely." After that it will not allow me to uninstall the suite. What I had to do was download a utility called "Add/Remove 4 Good" and had it remove Office 97 from the control panel. Then I deleted all entries on the hard drive and registry. I tried to install it again ad it still gave me the error. Then I tried installing Office 2000 suite because that scans for old Office files and removes them. After that didn't work I ran out of ideas. If anyone has any reccomendations or has run into this before please let me know. I want to stay away from formatting the machine. Thanks in advance!

Hi I've just installed MS Office 2000 Premium and when I try to open any of its applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, w/e), it just freezes and is Not Responding. I dunno if a virus is acting up, so I guess I decided to check Task Manager. In The Applications tab, whenever I start an Office application, it first shows the application as SysFader and then as w/e I started, Excel for example. Is this normal?
BTW, none of my Office applications work. They start, open, and freeze. I end program. Period.

What happens is the CD-rom just sorta stops while installing, then reads a bit, stops for a minute, reads a bit, stops for a minute, etc., but then it will say a random file that it can't find.

It does this for ALL discs, not just disk 1 or 2, but all 4.

Hi Tyson,

Sorry but I am a little confused about your explanation. If I understand you right, you bought used Prot?g? 200 with external ?Toshiba CD-ROM device (PCMCIA)? and you try to reinstall it?

Do I understand you correctly?

As far as I know in original Toshiba Recovery CD there is driver for external "TOSHIBA CD-ROM" (PCMCIA/CARDBUS) and it will be loaded at begin of recovery procedure. If it works with non Toshiba devices it is unknown to me. If you want to reinstall OS without original Toshiba CD you must start the notebook using start disc with right driver for external device.

Like you said the best solution is to start setup from HDD. You must a Google a little bit around and I am sure that you can find one for you. Please check this site . There is described that the optional 2.5" converter kit can be used for 2.5" or 1.8" IDE hard drive.

Answer:Office Pro install on Windows 2000 OS

On Microsofts website, it states that Operating systems that are compatible with Office 2007 are as follows:

"Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, or later operating system"

So your best bet would be to go with Windows XP. Unless you want to go for Vista. I don't recommend it. Save yourself the headache ;-)

Also, never make another folder on your hard drive that starts with the word "program". You'll confuse it! So if you have any OTHER folders that start with those 7 letters on your C:, then rename that folder to anything else.

Let us know, okay? I could be mistaken!

I've just installed a new copy of office 2k premium, in windows 2k.
I can't open it from icons, start menu nor from program files.

I deleted previous office 2k premium which used to close seconds after opening.
I followed instructions given and seemed my old office was no good, so i got a new different one.

That's the one i've just installed and is not opening. Sometimes message says error in installation, but generally it just doesn't open.

But i tried deleting and installing three times, same thing happens.

thank you

Answer:MS Office 2000 Install Problems


The errors you referred to are not too specific. I have listed the description of each below. The numbers in brackets refer to parameters in the actual error message.

2826 Control [3] on dialog [2] extends beyond the boundaries of the dialog [4] by [5] pixels

2898 For [2] textstyle, the system created a '[3]' font, in [4]
character set.
Are these the errors you are getting or is it something different?


PS: These error numbers always appear in the log file, if they do not have the format shown above they are normal diagnostics that always appear.

Sorry for a long post but desperation now rules!

Following a recent crash I have been forced to re install Win98. After re install I was also forced to reinstall several applications also. Office 2000 was amongst them (successfully) and so whilst about it I thought I would service pack it SR-1 and 2. Following this Outlook would not send email(Internet mail). The message received on connection to my ISP was "Internet mail is not registered properly. Please reinstall and try again Error 08x80040154" ---- I did - Outlook was reinstalled three times. No change. I then re installed Office 2000 twice - once as a repair and once as a complete over install. No change.

Google searches revealed that there has been an issue with Outlook98 after security patching SR1. I found nothing for OL2000. Since the situation and symptoms where similar I followed the common solution found which was to manually re register the offending dll (Outlmime.dll) using regsvr32.exe. The registry was successful but didn't cure it.

Next thing to try was the next most common suggestion and that was to completely uninstall Office - reboot - and reinstall. Uninstall was uneventful and completed OK. On the re install I get to type in the CD key, accept the licence terms, press the "install" button and then

While setting up a new pc (Windows XP), I installed Office 2000. I then did a terribly stupid thing. When I set up Outlook, I chose the Exchange Server option (which we don't use). Now when I start Outlook, it of course can't find the Exchange Server (because there isn't one). I get several error messages: "Server containing the Global Address List is no long available". I click ok and get "Unable to open your default e-mail folders. The information store could not be opened." and finally, "Unknown error 0X9AB40111". Outlook opens, but there are no folders, no outlook tool bar.

I have uninstalled Office, deleted the Office folder from Program files. However, when I reinstall it and open Outlook, I am still getting those same error messages. Obviously Outlook must store the use information in a different folder than the Microsoft Office folder.

I welcome any and all help in getting this resolved.

I have a really weird thing happening on my Win 2000 (Professional) system.
I THINK it might be related to uninstalling Outlook 2000 and/or Norton Anti-Virus, but now, whenever I launch Windows Explorer - in particular to use the SEARCH function, it pops up the msi installer dialog:

"Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office 2000 Standard".

Of course, it can't find the CD, and gives me an error, and asks me to load the appropriate CD.

I cannot CANCEL the install. It keeps popping up until I kill Windows Explorer. Oddly enough, I CAN use Winsdows Explorer and search, it's just that I have to background the stalled installer windows... If I kill the installer process, it not only kills my Windows Explorer sessions, it also kills all IE windows as well.

IE 6.0.2800.1106
Win 2000 Professional (5.00.2195, SP 4) running on an AMD Athalon XP1800+

I have checked the event viewer, but no application or system errors are showing up as a result of this. It seems that the uninstall of Outlook 2000 has removed SOME files that Windows Explorer needs, but I can't tell what.

Answer:Use of Windows Explorer (Search) causes install request for Office 2000 (Std)

Chances are you're using the Search Assistant. That being the case, it needs some more files off your Office Standard CD. Bummer.

Good news is that you can turn it off and have the good ol' standard search interface.

This involves mucking in the Registry so make sure you have a backup beforehand. Also make sure any explorer (both Windows and Internet) are closed before starting.

For Windows Explorer:
1. Start the Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ CabinetState \
3. Right-click an empty space in the right pane and select New > String Value
4. Name the new value Use Search Asst
5. Double-click this new value, and enter no as it's Value data
6. Close the registry editor

If you want, you can do the same sort of thing in IE.

1. Start the Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main \
3. Right-click an empty space in the right pane and select New > String Value
4. Name the new value Use Search Asst
5. Double-click this new value, and enter no as it's Value data
6. Close the registry editor

To change back to the Windows XP default, just delete the key you created, or change the Value Data from no to yes.
To see the change, be sure to close any open Windows Explorer / Internet Explorer windows.

Recently had trouble installing H&R Block Tax Cut 2007 (tech support had me disable everything in startup, install software and then enable everything). Current problems include:

1) After going to AOL, sometimes the mouse will not double-click. Roll-over works, but nothing else with mouse does (no double-click, no left click). No error message. Can not CTL-ALT-DEL, have to turn computer off and then back on to re-boot.

I recently purchased a new PC and went to install MS Office (that I purchased) onto it. The installation was successful and then it asked me to register the product. I went through the process (I had previously registered MS Office when I installed it on my old PC) but it tells me that the prodcut is all ready registered with a different PC and it won't allow me access to any of the Office Programs. I have not had any success with working with Microsoft in resolving this issue.

I recently had to load old registry settings using the rb*.cab command. Since then i haven;t been able to open Outlook 2000. I get the following message: "An OLE registration error has occurred. This program is not correctly installed. Run setup again."

I've run setup many times but can't get it to work. I've deleted my office files and reinstalled office 2000 clean a few times but this didn't do anything. if also tried reinstalling '97 and upgrading but still bet the same problem. Please help!

I'm having several issues with my windows 7 PC. I've been trying to install a legit copy of Office 2010 from a genuine CD and it won't allow me, suggesting I don't have admin rights (I am the administrator). I was upgrading from Office 2007 and it screwed that up. I've uninstalled all existing versions of Office and it's still not letting me install.

The PC is generally very slow and laggy, and every time I start up it tells me something is wrong and runs check disk. I've done an FRST scan and posted the log below (not sure if this is relevant, I'll perform other scans if anyone can tell me what I need to do). Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the PC and how to fix it? Obviously I'd rather avoid formatting and starting again, although all my files are backed up... it's a pain to reinstall everything.

Answer:Running slow, won't install Office 2010, always runs checkdisk

Update: am now getting this message upon booting: Sec Slave Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T. Status BAD, Backup and Replace.

Apparently this means my hard disk is about to die, so I guess there's nothing anyone can do to help!

Does Office XP Pro upgrade software "phone home" to register your software & PC during or immediately after the install process?

I had an argument with a guy who was trying to sell "Non-Registerable" Office XP software via a newspaper ad. I didn't realize until after I called him that he's selling pirated software. He tried telling me that it couldn't be registered, whereas I told him that the software "phones home" on its own. When I realized what he was trying to sell I chewed him out.

I've got Office 97 "registered" software on my desktop and laptop. Wouldn't an attempt to upgrade both with this "non-registerable" software create a red flag when I download updates to the programs from the MS web site?

Just curious... am I right? How can these guys sell this stuff without causing problems for the person trying to install it? I guess I'm naive about this kind of stuff...

Answer:Office XP Pro Registration question...

Office 97 doesnt require "activation" (what you refer to as registration), but Office 2002 and 2003 do. In NZ even Office 2000 requires it.

If he was selling a corporate edition or a hacked edition then its possible it would not phone home (it doesn't do it without asking/telling you by the way), but the serial may already be blocked by Microsoft for all we know, meaning you can never update it.
Its also possible that any attempt to update it could in the future allow MS to disable it, but thats another issue.

The seller is brazen to offer the software in a newspaper ad?

I need help and see if theres something I can do before calling a tech support line and being on hold for 5 days.

My parents just bought a new Dell (XP Home) and my dad went ahead and ordered Office XP with it. Well I'm trying to register the Office Software b/c it 'warns' that after 50 days the available features will become limited. More MS ******** if you ask me.

Anyways, well I type in the code on the back of the 2-CD case and it says the code is invalid. WTF! Has anyone else had this problem? Any help or guidance is much appreciated.

Can anyone tell me if there's a way to see a registry entry that tell you that your copy of Office has been registered with Microsoft? If you registered at the time of installation would the registry update to show that?

Answer:Registration proof of MS Office

Simply open Word or Excel and go to Help About and it will show you if it is registered or not.Bryan

Answer:Office 2010 registration


The version of Office 2010 from Majorgeeks, is a trial version and is just a taster for you to see if you like the software or not, and would pay for it.

We at Majorgeeks do not condone the use of keygens (we do delete or close such threads asking for these items) and if you like the software then you will need to purchase it or look for an alternative as in say Open Office which is free.

Wondering how this works.

I'm setting up two pc's. One for my little kids on which i intended to install office for them in order to get to know word and maybe excel. When setting it up it prompts me for online or telephone registration which I will do on the main PC. How does this work. Will it prevent me from running the same license on two computers. Assume someone will wonder if i try to registrate it twice on two different pc's if it's hardware related.

Is there a way around it.

Help much appreciated.

Answer:office xp license registration

If its a full version of Office, it may allow 2 registrations based on the use on a second PC by the single user (concurrent use is not sanctioned, but use on say a desktop and then at other times a laptop by the one registered user is OK). I have it installed on my desktop and on my laptop, and it activated fine on bith but its a full version.

OEM and Academic versions probably don't allow it.

Read the EULA (End-User Licence Agreement) to see if your version allows it. Look up EULA in Word Help.

If its permitted for your version, then it will allow 2 activations. If not, then if you already have it installed on another PC it will refuse this one.

There is no way around it, you have 1 licence.

Microsoft sell "Teachers and Student" versions in some countries, these are very cheap (cheaper than Academic) and are designed to let kids learn.

There are two new computers and I accidentally a version of Microsoft Office [with activation code] on the wrong PC, as it was meant for the other one.
Is there any way to take it off that computer so that it will work on the other? Can the registration to the one PC be undone so that it can be re-registered on to the other?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Registration mistake - MS Office

Hi and welcome. Uninstall it from one computer, install it on the other computer, activate it, if you are given an error message, just call MS and explain the problem. They are able to give you a manual activation code as well.
