I put my Office XP disk in my CD drive to install a couple of extra components, and windows explorer opens instead of the install program running. When I click on setup.exe, I get an error that says:
"the installation source for this product is not available. Verify the source exist and that you can access it."
I have a legal registered copy of Office. I also tried using a copy of the CD I make in case CD were ever to get damaged. Tried in 2 drives. One a CD and the other a DVD drive. I'm sure I've done this in the past and it worked. I have also gotten updates from MS in the past with no problem.
I also tried Add Remove Programs Change selection. Same error.
Does anyone perhaps know if MS page might describe that error somewhere? Nothing on Google.
Anybody have any idea whats going on?
Thanks for your attention.
