Windows Installer Invalid?



I just installed Windows XP on my main computer from scratch. When I try to install MS Office XP it tells me that Windows Installer may be invalid, however when I put the CD in upstairs it will let me install if I want to. I really need to install Office downstairs, it's almost usless on the other computer.

Someone please help.. Thank you.

First thing I would with a new install of Xp is run WindowsUpdate and get all of the updates that u feel u need. By doing that in thoery u updates ur Windows Installer. If that doesn't work then I really doubt my other idea would work but I'll listed it anyways. If u have a LAN then on the system that it will let u install Office Xp make a folder and copy the cd into it, then do a search on the same system for the windows installer then copy both the folder with office and the installer to the other system and then try it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
