Can I uninstall or repair Office 2000 without a CD ROM?

Posted on 2008-11-20

Operating system is Windows XP. On opening e-mails first message is a Windows Installer message "Preparing to Install." The next windowd says "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 disk and click OK". I do not have the disk. I do not use 2000 - I use OFfice 2003. Thanks for your time.

    Accepted Solution

    Go into the control panel and click Add/Remove Programs (or Programs and Features in Vista). Look in that list and see if there is anything that says Microsoft Office 2000. If so you can uninstall it.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Thanks - I found this one too - entered 'eraser' in search box and only got utilities to mop up after removing it in the conventional way i.e. with disk! I've been round in so many circles today - again, thanks.
