Upon Word 2003 Startup I get an error that says:

There are no office assistant character files present on the system. Please run setup in maintenance mode and install atleast one character.

If I have a legally downloaded copy from a local university I'm not exactly sure how to go into maintenance mode because I can't just pop in the cd and hit repair. I have all the installation files still on my machine.

Any help would be appreciated!

I've read a few microsoft pages on this and basically they say the reason is one of the following -

CAUSE
This problem may occur when all the following conditions are true: • You have both Microsoft Office XP programs and Microsoft Office 2003 programs installed on the same computer.
• You start an Office 2003 program first.
• The Office Assistant is active in the Office 2003 program.
• You start, and then quit an Office XP program.
• You start an Office XP program a second (or subsequent) time.


Are any of these true on your machine?
