why office reinstalls every time in vista logging as standard user

By alexmelo ·
I installed Office 2003 in my new Vaio notebook with Vista Home Premium as the administrator. After installing all my programs, I created a standard account to use in normal activities. However, every time I run Word, Excel, Powerpoint, MS Project (all 2003 version) (I repeat, every time), windows installer runs, takes a time configuring and preparing to install Word, etc. then Word opens. It's a nuisance which doesn't happen when I am logged as administrator. How to solve this, please?

It depends on the installation, if you did a Typical install, it won't install everything, just the most common components and others will install from CD or be not installed. If you did a custom install and tell it not to install other components you can reduce the Installer from appearing.

DEfault user settings

I suggest you create a new local a/c called Profile, login and run and configure each of the Office programs. Logout and login as administration and copy the Profile's profile over the Default user profile in C:\Users\ (or C:\Documents and Settings in XP). Then will ensure that new users will have all the programs pre-configured when they login!
