Office 2003 Uninstall fails on Server 2003-32 with event 11708 and i get an errormessage with "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it."

I looked into

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{something}\InstallSource

in this path there are the msi-files and the permissions are set to everyone to full access

I used "Microsoft Windows Installer Clean Up Utility", installed Office 2003 again, after this uninstalled it.
