Y does Office Xp keep trying to install

By Oz_1972 ·
I'm using office automation from a VB application to generate documents from templates (Word & Excel). On most machines this works fine on both Office 2000 and Xp, but on a couple of machine(with office Xp installed on them) when ever you create an instance of an office app it seem to want install the neccessary components and then fails.....
Does anyone know whats causing this?? I't bugging the life out of me now...

Was Office XP installed as Custom Install and was Run All From My Computer selected, if not that may be your problem, we have had the same issue in the past that installed seemed to fix it.

We had this same problem.

We just "fed it" the CD it wanted, let it install what it wanted, and the problem went away for good after the first instance.
