Does anyone have any ideas of what I could try? My laptop for work was recently upgraded to XP OS and Office, everything worked great until I tried to swap the floppy for a CD. The I got an error saying my hardware configuration has changed significantly and no Office programs will function. I tried going back to the floppy but nothing works, each time it goes out to a server for the install files but that server no longer exists! It then says I can redirect it to the pro.msi file to reactivate Office. Does anyone know of a work around?

Anyone know how big the file is? Maybe I could send mine to you from home? I'd ask why your IT department can't fix it, but I can imagine the caliber of people they're hiring now... Bang Head

LOL!! Ya gotta re-install. It's hosed. It happened to me once on my work PC.. no clue why.

And you don't need a single file, you need the whole CD (well not everything, but I don't know exactly what you do or don't need)

Well the only thing that still works is IE, so maybe I should just surf the internet all day, then maybe they'll get the point that I can't do anything (work related).

Download OpenOffice or Ximian OpenOffice if you want something to work...
