Windows 7 - Office 2003 Missing File:C:\SKU011:CAB trying to update to Office

Asked By Ellie on 12-Nov-09 03:23 PM
Somehow my source file C:\SKU for Office 2003 is missing & I cannot
install Office 2007. How can this be overcome?

If you do not have the installation cd and want to solve this issue
follow these steps: (works most of the time with all files)

1. Click on start==>run==>type "excel /s" without quotations and click

2. Once Excel is up in safe mode with the error message in front, hold
down ctrl+Alt+Delete keys on your keyboard to bring the task manager up.

3. Click on the processes tab==>look for msiexec.exe (only the one next
to your user name), click on it and end the process.

4. Excel should be running without an error message now==>close Excel in
safe mode==>reopen it one more time in safe mode to check if it is
opening with no error message.

5. Close Excel /s and open Excel normally, it should work fine.
