How can I access "components" required to complete OffXP install?

By coots ·
I had to rebuild my pc and need to install BOTH Office XP pro Dev edition (complete) AND Office 2003 (all licensed,original CDs).
I am first trying to install OXP dev and later Off 2003.
When I try to install Off XP it asks for additional components from the CD. I put both the Windows CD in for windows components and the office XP install CD in. Neither worked seems to have what the installation is looking for. I need to install the XP before 2003 version. The OS is WinXP SP3.

First, look at the requirements listed for your developers version of Office XP.

Do you need a version of Visual Studio installed as a prerequisite?

Another thought would be that you should not have updated XP to service pack 3 or installed the newer versions of the .Net framework before you installed Office XP.

The installer for Office XP may be looking for a specific version of any of a number of Microsoft technologies that may have newer versions already installed.

Drop back to XP SP1 or SP2 and then install the specific versions of other Microsoft technologies as required by Office XP.

Then, update your system and Office XP before installing Office 2003.
