How do I get rid of installing Microsoft Excel feature?

Guest

I purchased a laptop with Office 2003 trial installed. I tried to load my
upgrade version of 2003, but had to uninstall the trial verson and then
install my old 2000 software. I then installed my upgrade. I am getting a
popup that says "Installing Microsoft Excel Feature" each time I open Excel.
How can I stop this.

Hello:

You need to put your install disk back in and then do a custom install
and make sure "run all from computer" (or something to that effect I forgot
the exact wording) is checked. The choice you made (probably didn't know it)
was to only run some features from your hard drive and others to run from the CD.

Thanks for the reply Pieter. I don't have the disk with me today, but I will
try it. For clarity, the popup "Installing an Excel feature" does go away
after it appears to be installing someting and I can use Excel with out using
the disk. Does this info help?

Bob:

The only time I have seen the message is when the conditions are
as I described them; so it is possible something else is going on that I have
not seen. But I would suspect a bad install so the problem might be fixed
either way.

There is one more thing, if you have plenty of hard drive space I always install
a big package like Office from the hard drive. ie I copy the cd to the hard
drive and then install. This avoids having to find that damn CD when I have
to install an update or have some other problem (be sure to put the product key
into a text file and store it also).
