I have just reinstalled WindowsXP and I'm now trying to install Office XP and get the message "error opening installation log file". I have found a great number of people having this problem but there doesn't seem to be an definitive cure for it. I have taken a Process Monitor capture containing the error but I can't make out anything of it. Anyone up to the task ???

Do you have a legitimate copy of the Office XP CD and is it in good condition?

Have you tried copying the CD to your hard drive and installing it from there?

Do you have any more details about the error message?
