Everytime I try to open a new message in Outlook 2003 I get the following

message.

Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business - Error 1706 No valid source cold be

found for the product Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business. The windows

installer cannot continue.

I would be willing to uninstall Office 2000 if you think that would fix the

problem. I am just afraid it will cause more problems.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

    • Office:mac 2004 for Student and Teacher Ed has no math fonts, and no Equation

      Editor. Can I download it? Can I purchase it? What can I do? I am a math

      teacher and Word is useless to me without it...

    • Hijacking occurs when noobies to newsgroups don't know how to start a new

      thread.

      No responses happen when the people who could help you aren't reading the

      newsgroup or when those who do read don't have the answer.

    • hi Vicky,

      Error 1706 is often the MS Installer telling you it can't find the original installation source/CD that was used for Office 2000.

      If you have the CD you may want to try it, but you may need to do a repair/reinstall of Office 2000 from add/remove programs in the

      Windows control panel, restart the PC then do the same for the 2003 edition.

      It can also be that what MS calls the 'MSOCache' folder for Office 2003 has become corrupted from the mixed version install and

      that one gets a bit more involved (time wise) in resolving.

      ================

    • Thank you for responding to both of our concerns. I clicked on "New Thread"

      repeatedly and could never get it to respond, finally gave up and put

      question in "Reply". But thank you for responding to both of us!

    • You probably have pop-ups blocked. Hold the CTRL key down when you click on
