MSoft Office 2000 Office Assistant cat called Links missing

Question: MSoft Office 2000 Office Assistant cat called Links missing

I have recently had to re-install Microsoft Office 2000 and it has installed the default Office Assistant the paperclip and I miss the cat called Links.

It says it is available from the Office Assistant options but a message says there is not enough memory.

It is on the first CD of the software but I cannot see how to download it.

Can anyone help please?

Preferred Solution: MSoft Office 2000 Office Assistant cat called Links missing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, please help, this is really bugging me.

Office 2000 works absolutely fine for quite a while, and then all of a sudden...

When I click on the Office Assistant button or try to use a wizard I get this error message:

There was a problem starting the Office Assistant. Would you like to try reinstalling it?

This happens across all Office apps, and just happened out of the blue, one day, I have no idea why!

I noticed the Office Assistant wasn't coming up, and click on it, then got these problems.

When I click yes to the error, it does try to reinstall, but in the end gives me another message:

The Office Assistant could not be started. Please repair the Assistant by running Office 2000 setup and selecting "Repair Office 2000".

I then try this to no avail. Also I have looked on Microsoft support and have overwritten my oleaut32.dll file, then reinstalled Office as suggested, no improvement. Also tried to set the Office Assistant to run from my computer instead of CD-ROM as shown in another Microsoft support artice, but it was already set to run from my computer, so Office Assistant still doesn't work!!!

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks guys, love this forum.

Answer:OUT OF OFFICE ASSISTANT -OUTLOOK 2000

Think the Out of Office Assitant only features in 2000 when you are working in an 'Exchange Server' environmnet and not using SMTP/POP3 accounts. If you are then look harder it is there!

Click on help at the top then click on detect and repair. IF there is a problem with word this should fix it.
One question I have was this installed on the computer or did you install it and if you installed it was it the first time you installed it?

If it was the first time it was installed or was already on the computer when you got it the above should fix the problem.

If you reinstalled it you might have to uninstall it and run the eraser program so you get a clean install.

I get the message in Word 2000 (Using Vista) that there is not enough memory to change the office assistant.

I would have expected it to ask for the Office 2000 disk, but it does not even do that, nor can I view the gallery of assistants.

Is there a simple, not too technical way, of being able to change from the paper clip to the dog?

For those still using Legacy Office (97-2003) on Windows 7, any time you try to activate the animated Office Assistant, you receive a message that "The Office Assistant Requires Microsoft Agent 2.0 or better. The product is available in the Office System Pack." Read the following before installing:

1.) MS removed the MS Agent, which controls the Office Assistant on Windows 7 and above. The Hot Fix below, is contained in a zip file which restores the Office Assistant functionality to legacy Office users on Windows 7. The following link below will show you how to download the instructions to get the Hot Fix back. Note, if you are running Windows XP or below, you already have this installed and need not run it. See the separate Help documentation in MS Office, if your Office Assistant fails to appear in Windows XP or below.

2.) Furthermore, this fix is for Windows 7 only! Not Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or the Windows 10 Preview. You also will need to make sure you know the correct version of Windows 7 on your computer For example 32 or 64 bit. MS should sense the version of Windows 7 you are running, when they email you the instructions for downloading the Hotfix.

3.) The instructions say that this Fix only restores Merlin the Wizard, but it gave me "Clippy" which is the default Office 97-2003 animation.

In Word, you need to Insert / Hyperlink, that will make the copied data a link. Same with Excel.

Answer:Can't Open Email Links In Office 2000 Outlook

Hi T-DEX52,

Welcome to the board.

The easiest way to solve this is probably to Repair Office.
This sounds more complicated than it is..

Do this:

Method 1
On the Help menu in any Office program, click Detect and Repair.

Click Start.

To restore program shortcuts to the Windows Start menu, make sure the Restore my shortcuts while repairing check box is selected.
Method 2
Double-click Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Double-click the Office 2000 entry listed in the Add/Remove Programs dialog box.

Click Repair Office.
Click either Repair errors in my Office installation, and then click Finish.

NOTE: Be sure to select the Restore my shortcuts check box again.

Good luck,

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).

You probably installed Outlook as "corporate workgroup", which is GENERALLY used for an exchange server (at work, usually), in which case, you use Tools-Services.

If you want to use it at home, for just one Outlook user account (not email account--you can have as many of those as you like), then go to Tools-Options, Email and look for "reconfigure mail setup" or something like that. Switch it over to Internet Mail Only.

Answer:Solved: Missing toolbar in Word, Office 2000

Hi.

The text is a bit cramped up cos I copied & pasted off a word doc.
If you have lost your toolbars in Word, take only step 3. If that does not work, then take step 5, which always works.
Step 1. Ensure that Word, and not the document, is the problem. If you experience the behavior in any file, and particularly in a new file, then you know that the problem lies with Word. If you cannot duplicate the behavior in another file, it is likely a corrupt document. The steps to troubleshoot corrupt documents can be found in the next section.
Step 2. Clean up your hard drive. Keeping your hard drive clean is of the utmost importance, particularly when attempting to troubleshoot other problems. Click to go to Cleanup Instructions.
Step 3. Rename normal.dot: With Word closed, find and rename the normal.dot file on your system. If there is more than one, rename them all. To search for normal.dot, double-click My Computer. Hit the Search button. Type in "normal.dot" without the quotes, and hit search. See bulleted notes below for more information. To rename the file(s), right-click and hit Rename. Then rename the file(s) to abnormal.dot, normal1.dot, or anything you like--as long as it is not normal.dot.
If you cannot find normal.dot: Check under User Templates in the Tools-Options menu of Word, on the File Locations tab. If you do not have "permission" to rename normal.dot, check with your network administrator or internal helpdesk (applies only on some PCs ... Read more

Does anyone know why this happened and how it could be fixed?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Entire Office 2003 suite looks like Office 2000

This had happened to me once but in office 2007. It happened when I tried to open an older file type so It went into compatibility mode, which also changes the layout.

Not sure if its the same thing with office 2003 but go into options, advanced, and see if you can find something like compatibility options or layout.

Anyway if its not their your looking for some kind of option like that so snoop around all the options, views, and windows menus.

Last spring, I had to fresh install XP Pro on my laptop and thought that it would be a good idea to buy Office 2003 Professional to replace my old Office 2000. I love it and find that I am very frustrated with the 2000 Pro on my office computer. So, I just bought another 2003 Pro and I have no idea how to proceed to upgrade. Do I uninstall all of the current Office programs? Do I simply stick the disk in the CD drive and let Windows figure it out? Do I build a fire in the parking lot and do a dance? I was successful with a new installation when I did the fresh install. But I do not want to lose all of my Outlook e-mails attachments, and contacts. I have benefited a great deal from the help here in the past. I hope that someone can guide me in the simplest possible way. I am a relative novice/greenhorn.

Answer:Up grade MS Office 2000 Pro to MS Office 2003 Pro?

Each MS Office edition...is a distinct entity, there really is no such thing as an "upgrade" from one version to another.

You could conceivably install each and they would both work, because they are independent of each other.

I suggest uninstalling the version you don't like...install the version that you do like . That's what I do.

You will need the CD for each to uninstall or install.

I have a few year's worth of e-mails with order confirmations, travel data, business communications, and archives going back an equally long period of time. If I buy Office 2007 Professional, how do I preserve all I currently have. Is there a export and restore function which exactly replaces the e-mails (current & archived), contacts, etc. Do I need to purchase the full version, or is it just as good to get the "upgrade" version? If I am accustomed to 2000, is it a good idea to even consider upgrading?

Thanks in advance for guidance.

Answer:Upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2007

If you are going to upgrade or perform a full install of a new version of Outlook its advisable to get those emails, contacts etc backed up. This link shows you how to perform a backup of Outlook 2000 and what files to look out for. If you are happy with your current version of Outlook is there a real need to upgrade? One consideration I would make would be if Microsoft still provide updates for your version of Outlook, these updates are really important to fix security flaws.Hope that helps.

A friend of my wife's has 'consulted' me about something I know nothing about (now that's unusual since I keep telling people I know everything!).

Her computer is nearly as old as mine and is a Dell with 98SE, PentiumIII, 128MB RAM and 12GB HDD (nearly 10GB free space). It is mostly used for word processing and emailing but not for serious surfing.

It currently has Office 97 which includes Word (or is it the other way round?) Her employer has offered to upgrade her in stages to Office 2000 and then 2003, so that she can do more work from home.

What she wants to know is whether the newer programs can be installed without first uninstalling 97 and risking the loss of the documents she has created with 97 (and with the MS Graphics program),which are currently stored in My Documents. I thought it would be OK but don't actually know, hence this post.

She has plenty of HD space but I wonder if the other system requirements of the newer programs would make the upgrade difficult or even impossible.

After use 2000 and I want to go to use 2003, again 2003 also ask for disk for setup. Basically, everytime switch from one to another, it ask for set up. This only happens for Word. Any advices would be appreciated.

I have been a user of Office 2000 since it's inception and always downloaded and applied all service packs, etc. to keep it up-to-date.
Recently a friend had me try Office 2003 to see if I liked it better. I did some data backups, uninstalled 2000 and installed 2003. After several weeks of trial and error I have decided to go back to the simplicity of Office 2000. I mainly use Word, Excel, Outlook, and Power Point.
I want to completely uninstall 2003 and remove all traces of it then install 2000.
Is this possible to go back to a previous version without any problems?
I know where all of my Word and Excel files are stored and will back them up to be reintroduced to 2000. What about my Outlook files, namely the personal folders containing my address book and existing emails, sent items and deleted items? Is a newer .pst file created using Outlook 2003 recognizable by the older Outlook 2000?Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Goodbyb Office 2003, Hello Office 2000

OL 2003 PST files cannot be read in 2K. If the PST file was created in 2K, then you should be OK.

Hi all,
I recently bought a nice new HP computer. Since I have MS Office 2000 and I hate to upgrade because my other computer has this on it (and I know how to use it all!), I installed MS Office 2000 on the new computer.

Problem I am having is that an error message comes up that says:

Unknown error Ox9EE4011D An error occured while attempting to open the windows address book. Unable to find the WAB DLL.

I am pretty sure this is because MS Outlook 2000 is not supported by Win 7.

I have tried a few things with no luck.

I navigated to [C:\Program Files\Common Files\System]
I found the files wab32.dll and wab32res.dll, copied these
and pasted them to [C:\Windows\System32]

Right now when I look in this file [C:\Windows\System32], I see:

wab32.dll
wab32res.dll
wab32res.dll.mui
WABSyncProvider.dll

When I open up Outlook, it wants me to set it up and enable macros each time I open it.
When I do this I get the error message above, then it will download all messages as it would normally.
Problem is, just can send out any email.

I can't unload and reload Outlook without having to unload the entire MS Office 2000 because there is no seperate program in the remove program que.

Somewhere it said to go to the run window and register the dll's by using the following command at the run prompt.
[regsvr32 wab32.dll]
Tried this, but it would not let me do it (or I didn't do it right.

Okay so maybe you can install Office 2000 and Office 97 using different directories. I do beleive this. BUT what I did was install Office 2000 .. removing Office 97 before I realized that I would need at least ACCESS 97 for a existing shared database. So I tried to install ACCESS 97 (using a different Drives 97 on C and 2000 on D) but after install and trying to run .. I get a message saying it could not start because it did not have the license for it on the machine.
I have gone so far as to completely uninstall both versions and reinstall Office 97 only but get same message. I also used Fix-It Utilities 99 to clean up the registry. But I am still coming up with this problem .. no licenses found for Access 97.

Any help here guys??

A bit of background for my issue/question:

In order to sync my Windows Mobile phone to my computer I have to have Microsoft Outlook installed. However, my version is Office 2000. I cannot use Virtual XP on this particular computer (it's just a netbook) to use Office 2000 that way, but I did try that on my other computer, which runs Virtual XP beautifully. Unfortunately, it would not allow the syncing of the phone via the Virtual Machine. The more research I do on this issue, it seems Office 2000 is not really compatible with Win7, thus why I tried the Virtual XP thing in the first place.

So, my actual question is:

Does anyone have experience with Office 2003 and Win7? Are there issues running that? I'm sure Office 2007 is recommended, but I'm just looking for any insight anyone might have to offer from your own personal experience with running Office 2003 and Windows 7.

Just some additional information I thought I would put out there and if any one has any insight/solutions into these, that is welcome as well!

Windows 7 does install and run Office 2000, there are just some annoying quirks:

1. I had to copy over wab32.dll and wab32res.dll from C:\Program Files\Common Files\System into C:\Windows\System32 to get the address book to work in order to send messages or really do anything useful in Outlook.

2. I cannot select Microsoft Outlook as the default mail program. It doesn't even come up in the default programs list. That is why I cannot sync my phone up, because it... Read more

I currently have Office 2000 Pro, but have recently been given a license to install Office Pro 2003. However, the licensing agent needs the discs back, so after I install it, I may not be able to reinstall it should something corrupt or I have to do a HD reformat. Were that to happen, I'd have to reinstall Office 2000 because I'm NOT going to spend the $$$ Mr. Gates wants for 2003.

So now the question. After installing MSO 2003, which programs (Word, Excel, Access) will change the format of my existing documents should I resave them? Once saved in 2003 format, which (if any) would still be readable by MSO 2000? I'm mostly concerned with Access; have a LOT of databases designed with MSO 2000. If MSO 2003 insists on converting them to its format, and that format is not compatible with 2000, and I need the 2003 discs to fix or update something and can't get ahold of them, I would be forced to buy a personal copy of MSO 2003 (ugh-$$$!).

A utility that helps you completely remove Microsoft Office 2000 is available from Microsoft. The Office 2000 CD1 File and Registry Eraser Utility removes most of the files and Windows registry settings that remain on the computer after you remove Office. This utility is designed to be used on stand-alone computers or workstations. Do not use this utility to completely clean a working copy of Office from a computer. Run this utility only after you run the Setup program for Office 2000, and then click Remove Office.

I am trying to assist a lady with her need for Excel, linking a graphic calculator to her PC, and transferring data from the calculator to the PC. That's another problem.

She has purchased MS Office and Teacher Edition 2003 ( she is a qualified teacher) and it can be used on non-commercial use on up to 3 home PC's. (says so on the box)

To help her out, I was thinking of installing it on my laptop, but I already have Office 2000 installed.

Questions as follows:

Can I install both, without problems, on the same hard drive (C)?
Should I uninstall Office 2000 and then install Office 2003?
What happens if I send an Office 2003 document (excel, Word, Outlook or Powerpoint) to someone using Office 2000, will they be able to read it?
Do I have to get them to download free (?) Office 2003 readers?
What happens if I want to delete Office 2003 and revert back to Office 2000?
Can I convert all Office 2003 documents back to Office 2000? I guess not.

Answer:Office 2003 and Office 2000 on the same PC?

Office 2003 should automatically ask if you want to update an Office 2000 file to 2003 standards when you open it...Word, Excel, Publisher, etc., etc.
It's ok to run both versions, but the disk space they will consume will be HUGE.
I'm not sure 2000 will handle 2003 files.
I had both for a while and outside of the disk space required I didn't have any problem with that.
I uninstalled 2000 after I used 2003 and decided it was my favorite.
Read the entire EULA before you install 2003 Teacher Edition to make sure you aren't breaking some kind of legal agreement for use of the software on more than one computer because you will have to activate it and you know how Microsoft can be.

Word, Excel, and Powerpoint 2000 files can be read by Office 97 applications as long as you did not use any features not available in Office 97, such as table within a table in Word.

The other two I'm not sure about, but I'd suppose they will. I'm not sure why you would want to set it up that way. Perhaps if you tell us why, we can give you better answers.

At work, I run 4 different versions of Microsoft Office, and 3 different versions of Outlook. Do I use all the Outlooks to send/receive mail, no.

Hi all! Maybe if I bump this with some more info I'll get a reply.
My machine came with a Office Home 2007 60 day free trial.
I activated the free trial, then purchased a full activation key.
I now have the full version installed and running good, no problems.

Did this activation assistant come to just activate the free trial?
If so is it o.k. to now uninstall it ???

Thanks to all who may reply!

Windows XP SP2 with Outlook 2003 in an Exchange 2003 environment. When user turns on OOA no one receives replies that the user is out of office. Set up another profile on that account and that profile can use OOA without any problems. Set up the troubled account on another computer and still couldn't correctly use OOA. OOA is not disabled and I have deleted all rules. Thank you in advance.

This feature should be in Tools as an add-in. Help tells me the file is 'Outex2.ecf' but does not recognise the extension. The Microsoft site has no such download & does not seem to recognise it.There is a folder that must have come with my Office XP Pro 2002 that includes a lot of *.ecf files - Office/Office10/Addins.Can anybody help me with installing this? Alternatively I wish to auto-reply to incoming e.mails to give unavailability dates, but only to selected addresses and NOT to spam. Thus the feature in my Freeeserve account is not suitable.Thanks!

i'm running windows xp, and i have Micorsoft outlook version 2002.
i went to put on the out of office assistant, but i couldn't find it under the tools menu.
so i went to tools, options, other (tab), advanced, then clicked on add-in to add it in, however i found only one option "Exchange extension property pages" , nothing else and that option was already checked off.
now i went to install, i selected randomn files from the ones displayed ,and clicked open, it just went to the previous windows where it shows the add-in options with check marks next to them.
another computer with the same OS and version of Microsoft Outlook, the out of office assistant is under the tool menu and it's working fine.

i really need some help on this.

thanks

everyone in the list instead of just the sender. Is there

I want to have broadband, have dax box, BT have agreed to unsplit the line, this they say will take place at the exchange but do they have to come to the house to twiddle with the wires in the box, they say no but I am not sure. They will eventually come and take the box away, they have said they will notify me when this will happen. I have purchased all the stuff necessary to connect wirelessly. Maybe I am being paranoid but cant help thinking this will not go by without a hitch. I am going with a Tiscali package of calls free, line rental and broadband package of 8MB for 19.99 per month. Our calls are charged with Adept, do Tiscali notify all parties, sorry I am ignorant of all this, just need some simple, plain english advise, if I phone Tiscali I just get someone foreign who doen not understand what I amean. BE grateful for any advice. Thanks
