When I launch Excel my Windows Installer keeps trying to install Microsoft Office

This problem just began a couple of days ago.

I was having problems with my Outlook 2002 and I had considered
installing Office 2007. I downloaded the trial but never actually
installed it. I since fixed my Outlook 2002 problem without installing
any new software, yet I keep getting the Windows Installer trying to
install Microsoft Office when I click on any Excel icon.

This doesn't happen any other Office program (Word, Access,
Powerpoint, etc.)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi...I have office 2000 Small Business and Office 2003 installed on my XP
Home computer. Whenever I launch Outlook 2003, I get an error message for
some add on that can't launch, then Office 2000 SR-1 tries to install...I
have the disk, but since I don't use Office 2000 I just cancel until it goes
away. However, I am concerned that something is wrong. First off, why does
Office 2000 SR-1 keep trying to install something when I launch Outlook 2003?
2nd, should I go ahead and let it continue? I've noticed in the past when
Office 2000 upgrades itself, it then becomes the default program and I have
to go in and change the defaults...very annoying. Any advice? Thanks! -Dave

"ERROR MESSAGE RECEIVED WHEN TRYING TO OPEN MICROSOFT OFFICE OUTLOOK 2003."

The extension configuration file "C:Program FilesMicrosoft
OfficeOFFICE11ADDINSmsspc.ecf" could not be installed. There is an error
in the syntax or format of the file.

The file add-in "MSSPC.ECF" is missing or is not valid. The problem may be
resolved by using Detect and Repair on the Help menu.

I have tried Detect and Repair & I have re-installed Office 2003 but to no
avail. Can anyone help solve this problem???

I have a new computer and installed Windows 7 and tried to install Outlook
2007. When I insert the disc I can click "install" but I never get to a page
to enter the product key and nothing happens (i.e., it does not install).
Anyone know how I can start using this software I spent $100 on?

I have a SBS 2003 SP2 server on which Windows Update has dowloaded a number
of updates. When I try to install these updates it hangs when trying to
install "Security Update for Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (KB959897) -
Non-cluster". Further, this update stops the Exchange services and I can't
restart them from Services - I have to re-boot the server.

Any help gratefully appreciated!

Barry

I recently had my computer worked on and they put SP2 on it. Since I got it
back I have noticed little "issues" with it. One is in my OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6 -
when I hit the SEND button it keeps trying to install Microsoft Picture It 9.
It says I have to put the disk in. I have no idea why it needs this program
to run a spell check. I already have that program on my computer and it runs
fine. It came preloaded on my computer years ago. Any ideas on how to fix
this. Right now I have my spell check off.

It appears that this was a problem several years ago but all of the helpful
links about it have been removed from the microsoft website. Any help would
be appreciated!

My Outlook 2003 keeps trying to send a message and it times out and gives me
an error message. I can't figure it out. I cancel the outgoing message, but
then it will try to resend it again a couple minutes later. I deleted the
account and then set it back up again, hoping that this would solve the
problem, but it's doing to same thing. I use SBCGLOBAL.NET. Can anybody
help? Thanks!! Todd

Running XP SP2. Outlook 2000 SP3. IE7

I have Outlook 2000 installed on my PC and want to (once again) have
it as my default e-mail for Internet Explorer7.

My problem began after I launched Microsoft Outlook 2003, today.
Thought I might try the trial offer to compare '03 against '00 .

Therefore, after selecting Outlook 2003, "Microsoft Office 2003 Set
Up" launched. The window asked for my product key. I entered the
"Key" number from my Office 2000, software.

I Immediately received an error message stating that I did not have a valid
number. I selected
the cancel button and closed the window.

Now each time I open my browser click on the mail icon - "Microsoft
Office Set Up 2003" launches.

What steps do I take to stop "Office Set Up 2003" from launching?
I want my browser to revert back to selecting: Outlook 2000 as my default
for e-mail.

I have already tried: ToolsInternet OptionsPrograms and Selected:
Microsoft
Outlook. Unfortunately, after selecting the "apply" button and clicking
"ok"-"Microsoft Office Set Up 2003" still launches.

I also went to the add/remove program selected "uninstall "Office 2003",
the program uninstalled "Office 2000".

Fortunately, I have Norton Go Back and simply restored.

An important part of the problem I will reiterate is: Office Set Up 2003
only launches when I access e-mail from my browser, IE7.

When I click on the desktop shortcut for Microsoft Office 2000 opens just
fine.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Some emails that I view in the preview window of Outlook 2003 SP2 cause
outlook to try to install Office Premium 2000 by launching an installation
window. I can cancell out of the intall but it can be frustrating.

HELP!

I installed Frontpage 2000 on my XP system about 3 weeks ago, and ever
since, when browsing through my emails in Outlook 2003, it continuously tries
to install some Frontpage feature, before erroring out saying I must insert
the Frontpage installation disc. Even if I insert the disc, and click OK, it
errors out again, and then cancels. Is there a way I can keep the windows
installer from trying to load up whatever Frontpage feature it is searching
for? I need Frontpage on my system so I can manage a website of mine, but I
do NOT want it to continue trying to interact with my Outlook program. My
only rememdy right now is to click cancel every time the installer pops up
when looking through my messages... it's really annoying.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be very grateful. I'm not computer wizard...
so I'll need some simple instructions on how to turn this "feature" off...

Thanks!

I observed that when I preview excel attachment in Outlook 2007 my other open
excel2007 file ribben will be completely disabled. If I click any option it
does not do anything and no any message at all. Is it a Bug? Is any one know
this issue?

Thank you. Of course I'm logged on as Administrator. The problem is that it
seems that this key doesn't have any permissions at all, or I cannot see
them.

Hi,
Outlook 2002 keeps trying to "send" to one of my email accounts on it's own.

I have two email accounts the current one, this email is sent from, and an
old account.
I keep the old one active to pick up the odd email still sent to that
account.

I have set the old account to receive only, but despite that it keeps trying
to do a send (even though nothing is there to send).
Even with scheduled email turned off it tries to send.
(the reason for wanting to stop the send is that it causes errors - it gets
error 0x 800CCC0F - as I don't know what is causing the error and don't need
to send I want to stop sending)

Deleting the account not unsurprisingly stops it trying to send but then I
can't receive from that account.
When I reinstate it off it goes every minute send send send !

So HELP please, how do I find out what is causing this account to send and
make it stop !

It's a POP3/SMTP account.

I'm trying to import a contact file from Excel. I get error msg that
I don't have the required translator. When I try to install it, it
tells me to install the Outlook disc so it can grab the file(s). I
bought an HP Media pc and like new computers, all the program files
are now on the hard drive. I don't have an Outlook disc. How do I
get around this problem? Thanks

Thank you. Of course I'm logged on as Administrator. The problem is that it
seems that this key doesn't have any permissions at all, or I cannot see
them.

Hello,

I have Office 2007 Ultimate. I had to install also Outlook 2003, I've
heard that it's possible to run two versions of Outlook on the same
machine (I have Vista Ultimate). Aparently, I was wrong, at least it
didn't work, so I removed Outlook 2003.

Now every time I start Outlook 2007 it tries to install something. The
same thing happens when I send message for the first time. Also, this
happens every time I open Word or Excel file (but only if I click on the
file itself, when I start application first then open file - it's OK).

In the Event viewer I see messages like this (from MsInstaller):

me.

I would appreciate any help on how to fix this (on top of this Windows
system restore feature didn't work).

Always I have problem with Outlook when I turn on my computer ,when windows
starting up, before I can do anything Outlook began and make my computer out
of working for a few minutes, please help me ,Please.

I have Outlook 2003 and for the past 3 weeks or so, it has been doing this
quirky thing of popping up a dialog box that wants me to save-as, either as a
text file, or a doc file. If I click cancel, the window just keeps popping
up endlessly. The only way then to exit the program is by Windows Task
Manager. It is sometimes intermittent, sometimes endless loop. I have
scanned for viruses, scanned for trojans, adware, spyware, even removed and
re-installed outlook, but nothing fixes it. IE8 was doing the same thing
until I switched to Firefox, which is much more stable. Seems to be a
problem only with MS programs. Even Excel was doing it for awhile, trying to
save-as endlessly, not allowing me to do anything. Is it a hard drive
problem? It is driving me nuts, almost to the point of buying a new
computer, and my Gateway is only like 2 years old. Thank you for any help
you can give.

When I launch Outlook 2010, Microsoft Word opens (Compatibility Mode), maximized on a different screen and I can't get it to go away until I close Outlook.  I am running the 64-bit version on Windows 7 Ultimate.  I used to have this problem occasionally with Outlook 2007, but now it happens all the time.  Any suggestions?- Robert Beaubien, Kool Software

When I go to the live/hotmail log in page it automatically logs me into my university email.  When I finally get logged in it sends me to a completely useless page with no clear button/tab linking me directly to my email account.  This is completely annoying and I wish you all at Microsoft would stop treating us like cattle and direct us to places we don't really want to go to.  I just need my email.  Stop making things so complicated.  No wonder people are shying away from windows live/email/bing.  You all need to get your act together.  Who is doing all of this programing?

Wehn trying to install a second Exchange 2010 server. I originally migrated from Server 2k3 Exchange 2k3 32bit combo to 2k8R2 64 bit which am using as a "bounce or swing" server since my company runs AD and Exchange on teh same machine.

The work is being done on a test domain on a separate network so is totally isolated from teh main domain!!

Can anyone help? thanks!!
