A couple of days ago i opened up microsoft word and a window came up saying
(windows installer) " preparing to install"
after that it came up that it had failed and it couldn't find "Installation file SKU011.CAB could not be found"
I am then prompted to install my windows disc to recover, but after doing this it still can't find it!!!!

I have being searching on Google and the general answer to this seems to be to change the CD Cache to '0' . have tried this but it throws up more problems :inlove:

The CD Cache is now back at 0 but now i'm pulling my hair out, the machine is running slow because of it and every time i open up a microsoft app. it keeps happening.....aaaahhhhhhhhhhh please can some one help before i go bald :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

Try a repair of MS Office. If that doesn't work, then uninstall and reinstall it. Be sure to get all the updates for it also.

Then, if that doesn't work, try this google search to see if any of it may apply to you: http://www.google.com/search?q=SKU011.CAB&...lient=firefox-a

You might want to check that you have the latest version of Windows Installer. Check this article.

Thanks for your your response guys!

Have tried to repair windows but during the process it ask's for the SKU011.CAB file again and install the original CD. So i do but still the same problem.... Tried to uninstall it but then it ask's for a Prom011.MSI file that's missing, and i have to abort it.

Again looked at google but couldn't find anything on there to do the job (Unless i'm missing something) :thumbsup:

anymore ideas guy's? :flowers:
