Office xp is not installing on windows xp service pack2

Initially my computer was having WINDOWS XP with OFFICE XP. Recently I formatted my computer and installed WINDOWS XP SP2 and when I tried to install our old OFFICE XP. The setup wasn't responding so I went to g;\files\support\q282879 I got a reply that you can install this update only on Build 2195.

Could you pls clarify?

Re: office xp is not installing on windows xp service...

When Microsoft publicly releases a particular Service Pack,
it does not change at all. If future updates are recommended,
they are available at the Windows Update web site.

In other words, there are no differing versions of a
Service Pack "build" once it is designated as RTM
(Released To Manufacturing).

"Build" is the version number when the CD was pressed, normally the RTM
(release to manufacture).

so, the solution to your problem is get another XP cd and reinstall it..

I need to have a product key number of 25 characters, to which I was directed to look on the back of my laptop. Everytime I put it in, it says incorrect. I am baffled. This is for 2007 microsoft windows.

There isn't a "Windows 2007", so you might be thinking of "Office 2007". If that is so, the key on your computer won't work since it's for the wrong product. The sticker on your computer is for the Windows operating system installed. You'll need to find a key meant for Office 2007.

While I don't care for Microsoft and their prices, I play by the rules so I won't provide links to sites where you can download keys. While those places do exist, the keys frequently don't work and the sites are common sources of viruses and other malware. The only safe and legitimate way to get a key that will be guaranteed to work is to buy one from Microsoft.

You can also check out OpenOffice, which is a completely free alternative office suite comparable to Microsoft Office.

My OS is windows xp professional and my MS office is 2007 version.. people are unable to view the files i send them..especially word and excel.. pls help me

Office 2007 saves files in a new set of formats by default. If you colleagues cannot read these files, likely they are not using software compatible with these formats.

You can save these file in other formats by opening the relevant document in Office 2007 and, under "FILE" click "Save As..." and save the document in a compatible format; .doc instead of .docx, for example.

How to reformat a notebook laptop with no CD-driver?

Remove the hard-disk - it will usually connect via an IDE or SATA-compatible interface. You can then connect it to a computer (internally, or via eSata / USB / 1394 enclosure). You can then format it from that computer.

When you say no CD-driver, do you mean Driver or Drive?

if there's no CD drive, it should either have a floppy drive (in which case, any system book disk can re-format the HDD), or USB-booting capabilities.

If there's no driver, than a Windows 2000 / XP CD should be able reformat the disk - when you boot from it, it will load drivers off the CD. You don't need to install Windows normally, the recovery console can format disks.
A Windows 95/98/ME boot disk/CD will allow formatting, but only in FAT/FAT32 file systems (you will probably want NTFS, which 2000 and XP can create)

Sound video and internet

You need to install the drivers for all those devices. Which you will get from the HP Website but the problem you may have is that this laptop was only available with Vista so there may not be any drivers available to XP.

Office with several user accounts, same computer

When installing software, you are often given the choice to install it for the current user or all users. To avoid this problem in future, make sure you select the "all users" option.
Hopefully, the problem is a missing shortcut. You can check this by logging into an account that does not seem to have Office, opening up your C drive and navigating to "Program Files\Microsoft Office". In there, you'll find and "Office<x>" (<x> depends on the version of Office). In that directory you will find WINWORD.EXE. Double click it and Word should start. If it does, your problem is just the shortcut. If not, there is more happening behind the scene, and the best solution is to uninstall and reinstall for all users.
If it is a shortcut problem, the fix is simple. There are many solutions, but this is probably the simplest and will give you an idea as to what has gone wrong and how to fix the problem from here on for other software. Right click on the start button and select "Explore All Users". This is what it is in XP, but I suspect Vista has something similar. You will see that you are in "Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu". You will also see a folder in "Documents and Settings" for each account, including the one that does have Office. Go to "Documents and Settings\<user>\Start Menu\Programs". In there, you will find the Office part of the start menu that the 'privileged' account has. Point to the folder, right click, and select Copy. Now go to "Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs" and Paste the Office folder there. You will need to point the mouse at the file content panel on the right side of the screen. Now all users should see the menu, not just the one account.
Good luck.

Product key for Microsoft Office

The office xp product key should be on the back of your office xp
CD case. If office xp is currently installed on your old
computer, then the product key used to install the software is
stored in the Windows registry in that computer, and you should
be able to retrieve the product key using one of these utilities:
