SKU112.cab, office can't find it...
Posted on 2005-04-17
New Compaq laptop, came with office trial installed. uninstalled trial. Installed off the shelf, full list price Office 2003 (2 CD's). worked for 2 mo.'s. Now, when Office starts I get a message that A)there is Visual basic compiler error B) Can't install a feature C) CAN'T FIND SKU112.cab and would you put CD or... whatever in. Did so, Repaired install, says the repair completes well, but when I restart the app. it tells me yet again that it can't find the file SKU112.cab. Checking CD's there IS NO SKU112.cab file. This jives with other posts to this group and the Internet. Now, what kind of bogus game is Microsoft up to? (That is rhetorical, please...). My computer dealer is OfficeMax so there is no taking it back there. I am going to have to fix this thing myself. I have checked the HD and the CD and no file. I did see something flash by about "pdfmaker". and something about a third party app. Have been given a new feature by Microsoft that does not allow my Adobe PDF maker to operate?? Or?? Thanks... I am losing patience with Microsoft. Oh and there is the latest version of XP Pro and no service pack 2. Thanks again. Oh I called Compaq tech support in India and they told me to call Microsoft... Wanna' place a bet on what Microsoft is going to say?
