I am getting an error every time I try to execute Excel.
Error - Microsoft Office XP with FrontPage The Feature you are trying to use is on a network resource which is unavailable. Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package PROPLUS.MSI.
I never use FrontPage and currently the only time I can actually open Excel is when I keep the Microsoft message box open and click on the same Shortcut. Also Office XP was installed from the original CDs and not over a network.
Found an article on Microsoft re Locating missing .msi files [office.microsoft.com]. Quite helpful, but is it possible to fix without the CDs and less hassle?
Not always...I've run it recently and not been asked for CDs. I guess it depends upon what is being fixed by the routine. You could always cancel it if it asks for the CD...you do have the CDs somewhere don't you?
Thanks Bill. Yes, I do have the CDs. Last night I opened excel a couple of times and it seems to have resolved itself, which is really strange. I'll Detect and Repair anyway. Apologies if I wasted your time. SL
