Office2K install screen appears when starting office apps!
Posted on 2002-04-01
I have 3 computers at home running office2k on win2k platform and have never encountered this quirky instance before. I have a new notebook and began to reinstall all of my apps, including office 2k. Anytime I open any of the apps within the suite, word, excel, etc. The little MS Office 2000 Professional installer screen pops up and says, "Preparing to install" and then the progress indicator moves all the way to the end. This happens in a matter of about 1-2 seconds and goes away. Then, the screen pops up and says, "Please wait while windows configures microsoft office 2000 professional". The progress indicator starts to move across the screen and then my application will launch. This process takes about 2-3 seconds. All of the functionality is there it is just annoying seeing this happen every time. Any ideas? My hardware consists of a P4 1.6Ghz, 256MB Ram, 40GB Hard Drive. Fast machine.....
