    Default Office 2000 and Win XP Home

    Hi,

    I have recently added another hard drive to my computer and installed XP Home edition. Also running Win ME on the other drive.

    I have Office 2000 premium installed on the ME drive running fine

    When I try to install Office 2000 on the XP OS the installation terminates early with the message 'Installation has terminated prematurely'.
    Then 'for assistance contact microsoft support'.

    I really don't need the hassle of phoning the states only to be directed to the support pages on the microsoft web page (couldn't find anything there that helped).

    So I thought about consulting the thousands of knowledgeable people in here, before I resume bashing my head on the wall!!!

    Help!!

    Im assuming you're trying to install it onto the same drive as XP Home.
    Check and make sure the CD is not scratched or anything.
    I would be inclined to boot into safe mode (Or whatever version of it XP has) and do that, as I had troubles in 2K and office 97 once, and booting into safe-mode for install fixed it!

    Disorder,

    The following KB notes may be of help with the problem: See article Off2K Installer Terminated Prematurely During Setup Try methods 2 & 3. If not try Windows Installer Errors for Off2K and if necessary see the following article (be warned technical!) Off2K troubleshooting

    Cheers, Babe.
