MS Office 2000 Setup starts with BlogDesk

Postby ainslie » 04.07.2006 00:06

Hi there,

Every time I start BlogDesk MS Office 2000 setup also starts.

Has anybody else had this problem and is there a cure?

It is spoiling what otherwise is a brilliant program.

This is a Windows issue and has to do with missing system files. Other users reported this problem - all they had to do was inserting their Office Install CD, then the missing files got installed and everthing was fine.

Thanks Johannes,

I will try that. I cancelled the setup before but I will let it run next time.

Yes that did the trick.

Thanks for a great program.

I don't have a Windows Office disk...

Is there someplace else I can find those missing files? I really like this editor, but don't use Windows Office and canceling all the dialog boxes each and every time is truly annoying.

Likewise I have the same issue, but don't use MS Office. Is there a list of the files and where we might get them off the MS site?

I might add that this ONLY seems to happen when using File > Open and File > Publish Post commands.

I don't know why Windows thinks that files are missing and even less what their names are. Probably some Office program (Word or PowerPoint or Excel etc.) was not installed completely (i.e. some components where left on the CD, like fonts or a dictionary). And now suddenly Windows wants to install those 'missing' components (which aren't really missing because you can cancel the setup).

I finally installed BlogDesk on my laptop (where I hadn't installed MS Office after replacing the hard drive).

Seems to have worked perfectly (no irritating requests for my Office disk).

In fact, I liked BlogDesk so much I uninstalled MS Office on my laptop and reinstalled BlogDesk. Hell, I use Open Office anyway.

Great piece of software! Sure I'll have a few suggestions to post in a couple weeks...
