...cannot load the microsoft office shared libraries

Hi, I'm trying to install office on a Mac computer running Mac OS 10.4.11, that we have at my office. It previously supported Microsoft office 2004 but then removed.

I placed Microsoft Office 2004 back on the computer.

When I run it as Administrator it works perfectly fine..it opens and I am able to do my daily tasks.

When I run it as anyone but an administrator I receive this message:

Microsoft XXXX cannot load the Microsoft office shared libraries.

Fill in the XXXX with any office program (excel, word, etc)

I tried removing it any placing it back on the computer but it did not solve the problem.

I tried changing the permissions to enable everyone to have read and write access to the folder and everything enclosed.

I am trying to run the program directly out of the applications folder and not from an alias or from dragging the program icon to another location.
