This concerns a DELL desktop, Dimension E510, with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, and Windows Installer Version 3.1. Attempted installation of MS Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003. Attempt unsuccessful! Getting the message:
"Windows Installer, Error opening Installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and is writable."
Maybe something about the registry, ‘drive:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /V’, needs to be edited. Please help me install MS Office.
:smileysurprised:"Start/Run, type in sfc /scannow, OK" did not work. +The program informed me it could not find four (4) other .dll files on my 'new' XP OS disk from DELL.I am going to do some reseach reading on the registry, and look under some other rocks before I get into the "Repair" mode. Installing Operating Systems (~from scratch) has taken days for me in the past.
