WinXP No MS Word?

By GGDeal ·
I recently loaded Windows XP pro, and have run into a problem. I can not use MS word at all. When I attempt to use MS word, I get the this problem:
1.) A window comes up with 'installing microsoft word feature.
2.) "The feature you are trying to use is on a cd rom or other removable media that is not available", Install MS office XP professional with front page and click ok.
3.) I have WindowsXP professional, and I load that cd and nothing else happens?

4.) I SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH WIN98SE OR BOUGHT A MAC!!

Anyone have any suggestions?

You need to use the OFFICE XP CD, not Windows XP.
You'll find Windows XP more stable than 98.

You probably got your MS Word with MS Works.... Look for your MS Works cd-rom and put it in the cd-drive. You might want to do a "custom" install and select everything to run from your hdd (if you have the space).

Geez, I should have seen this one comming, just another way for MS to reach into my pockets for MORE money, Why can't I use MS Office 2000 to install MS word?

You can us MS Office 2000 ... in control panel -> add/remove programs ... remove MS Word and MS works ... then just install office 2000 if you like using it better than the version of MS Word you have.

You might consider removing and reinstalling the version of office you have - it just might be simpler. When you do the installation, choose 'Custom' method and then 'Run all from this computer' from the menu. This will include all the features you are after.
