Re: Can't display Clipart on Power Point
You may see this error message after installing Service Pack 2 (SP2) if you haven't installed Clip Art.
The error only occurs when the Drawing toolbar is visible.
MS is aware of the problem and is working on a hotfix but in the meantime, try this:
* Hide the Drawing toolbar (choose View, Toolbars and remove the checkmark next to "Drawing". The Drawing toolbar is visible by default but once you hide it, it will stay hidden.

I had a similar problem with Coreldraw 8. I used it successfully for years and loved it on varoius version of Windows, currently XP. I installed Coreldraw 12 and still had Corel 8 on the computer.
Now the problem: Corel 8 and Corel 12 could not open the Corel 8 clipart disk #2, only just down to the folder level. When I right clicked on the Corel 8 disk #2 clipart folder and checked the Path Properties it gave me a path other than the correct clipart disk location (in my case it should have read E:) BUT it was some weird location like MNfisherman referenced above and read: C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Documents\Corel.! What the?! I knew the path should have read E: to access the clipart since the clipart was on the disk and in my CD tray, so I uninstalled Corel 12 thinking that was the problem since 8 had worked fine, then checked the clipart CD again but still no luck.
I then uinstalled Corel 8, so now I had no Corel program on hard drive. I put the Corel 8 clipart disk #2 in the computer knowing it would not open the clips but just to see if I could get beyond the folder level to see if the clipart files were there and yes I could. (I could only read the names of the files at this point because no Corel on computer) So I only reinstalled Coreldraw 12 figuring the later version would open the older version clipart and Success! It worked. I think my problem had something to do with the Corel 8 MF indexer, but I'm not sure. I had a red semi circle (like the Corel Set Up Semi circle) on all of the clipart folders instead of the regular yellowish fold so thats why I think it had something to do with indexer or other type of setup conflict). Now all of my clipart folders appear normal being the regular yellowish color folder. I suggest using a clean slate by unistalling all versions(Makesure you shut down the computer after each uninstall to get ridof all of the componentsof the program and then restart the computer) and then only reinstall the newest version. Hope this helps. Good Luck
plzz folow this setp to installed succesfullly office 2003.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Add/Remove Programs, click Add New Programs, and then click CD or Floppy.
Locate the root folder of the Office source location, click Setup.exe, and then click Open.

Accept the End User License Agreement, and then click Next.
Specify the location where you want to install Office, and then click Next.
On the Choose which applications for setup to install page, click Next.
If you click Choose detailed installation options for each application on the Choose which applications for setup to install page, and then click Next, the feature tree appears on the Choose installation options for all Office applications and tools page. Because Office Setup detects that you are using Terminal Services, the only installation states that are available are Not Available and Run from My Computer. By default, some features are set to Not Available. Do not change the installation states of these features to Run from My Computer, because you may experience problems with the Office programs that use these features.
Warning By default, some features are set to Not Available to make sure that there is optimum performance in a Terminal Server environment, including the elimination of unexpected errors. Do not change the installation states of these features to Run from My Computer.
Note If your Office source location is an administrative installation, Run from Network is also displayed as an installation state.
On the Begin installation page, click Install.
When you receive a message that the installation completed successfully, click OK, click Next, and then click Finish.
Go to add/remove programs and find the installed program and click on change/repair. Then insert the office CD or DVD. Then choose repair. That will solve ur problem, If this is helpful to u please rate. Thanks Good Luck :)
Please copy the contents of CDROM to your HDD and run the setup from HDD only. here i mean, you should initiate the cliparts setup through setup.exe on your HDD.
It will resolve. i guess cause of problem is, you've installed the Office 2K7 from other drive and trying to install the Cliparts from different one. May be you can insert the CD to the same drive from where you have installed office 2K7.
OR insert the Office 2K7 CD and run setup again for Modification and check the checkbox for Cliparts as well this time. It will be installed without any problems.
Your computer can support Windows XP, which has better hardware support and compatibility with the 2003 Office suit. XP also updates your hardware automatically once you are on the internet. You might want to try this.
Keep in mind that the older the Operating System, the harder it is for Office suites to compat. Newer Operating systems have better support for your computing. If you don't have HDD problems, the BIOS should not prevent you from loading SP2 for Win2000.
1. The SP2 Source Disk may have a problem
2. The Win 2000 you have already loaded may be missing components, preventing the SP2 to load.
2. Notton Antivirus versions and the 2003 office both reject Win 2000. They just don't like it; it's getting too old.
