office xp pro installation error

Posted on 2004-10-19

During Install every time, I get error 2350, and the installation locks up.

I installed the new installer suggested on microsoft's website, and rebooted. Played with this forever, and still cant get it to install. The Office 2003 Install doesn't work either. I think the computer had office on it in the past, and it was uninstalled incorrectly.

Any Ideas?
