Installing Components for Microsoft Graph in Office 2003????


Before I mass deploy Office 2003 to the clients on our network, I'm testing on a few boxes here in the Office.

The users are reporting that when they use PowerPoint, and click on a graph within PowerPoint, that they get a dialog box that says

"Installing components for Microsoft Graph"

At first I thought this was an installed on first use issue, but it is not.  It happens every single time.

Is there something I must add to my admin install point to prevent this message from appearing?  I'm missing something, what!?!?

It sounds like you need to install Microsoft Graph:

"If you originally installed Microsoft Office from a network file server or from a shared folder, you must install Microsoft Graph from that location. If you installed Office from a CD-ROM, you must install Graph from the disc.

Quit all programs.
Do one of the following:
If you run Microsoft Windows 2000, double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon in Control Panel.
If you run Microsoft Windows XP, click Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
In the Currently installed programs box, click the listing for Microsoft Office or the individual Office program, depending on whether you installed the program as part of Office or individually, and then click Change.
On the Maintenance Mode Options screen, click Add or Remove Features, and then click Next.
If a Custom Setup screen appears, select the Choose advanced customization of applications check box, and then click Next.
In the list of features to install, click the expand indicator (+) next to Office Tools.
Click the arrow next to Microsoft Graph, and then click Run from My Computer.
Click Update.
Restart the Office program you were using.
Graph will immediately embed a chart into the document that depicts the data contained in the Word table. Graph will also display a datasheet containing the chart data. The datasheet contains a copy of the data from the original Word table that you selected. If you want to change the values plotted on the chart, you must edit the numbers within the datasheet, not within the original table."

A complete install from the admin install point is what did the trick.
