    Hi,

    Thank you for your response. I followed these, but when attempting to "add" Outlook in the add/remove programs under Windows Office XP Professional. It continues to ask for path for PRO.MSI. I did see the additional folders and files that appeared using your suggestions, but even searching, still cannot find PRO.MSI to move forward in getting Oulook visible.



    Thoughts?

  • dianne_m_haa Apr 30, 2010

    Still haven't been able to get it goin'... so I'll still take help as you can. BUT, I did have someone get Outlook appear in the "All Programs" , but when I click on Outlook from the Start, All Programs, I get :



    (null) is not a valid Win32 application.

Hi dianne_m_haa. the PRO.MSI is an installation package. You will have to reinstall The Office. Download the Windows Install Cleanup to remove your old installation. Try to get the CD from somebody. or download it from piratebay or another torrent website and use your CD key (I do not recommend piracy. I hope this helps.

The link below will take you through making sure that you do not have hidden files and folders enabled.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4654744-show_hidden_files_folders

After you have done this run the scan again on the computer. If the file is still not there then it is not on the computer and you will need your CD.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

    Hi Dianne,



    I was looking for the PRO.MSI file to send you. I had Office 2003 CD but it doesn't have the file named "PRO.MSI". It is different from yours. That's why I asked to my friends if they had it. But I couldn' find it.



    To solve the problem:



    - You will find PRO.MSI file and copy it into a CD.

    - When Office XP asks for that file, you will insert that CD into the PC CD Drive to be able to found and replaced automatically by the program.



    This will be solution for you.



    Good luck.

    Dianne,

    I wrote that I had 2003 version in my last comment by mistake. I had 2002 Pro version. Sorry.



    And I asked for it to one of my friends who may have Office 2003 Pro. I'm waiting answer from him. If he has I will copy and upload it to my web page to be able to downloaded by you.



    But if you solve the problem, would you inform me writing comments. Thanks.



    I never give up my friend :))





    Best wishes.

    Hi Dianne again,



    I received your comment. As I see you haven't found any solution yet.



    Would you please click this link, then download the "MSO_2003.zip" file. That is very big file (about 325 MB). Extract that file and burn (copy) them to a blank CD. Label that CD while burning as "OfficePro 2003".



    Install this Office Pro 2003 to your PC. If you meet any problem please inform me. (in case come files may be corrupted while archiving, extracting, uploading, downloading or burning)



    If you do not have CD, this is the only solution :).



    NOTE: The "MSO_2003.zip" file will stay in the link for only a few days. If it solves your problem please inform me that I can remove that file from the web.





    Hope this helps. Good luck.

I am not sure what exactly you need.

I suppose PROPLUS.MSI file is a Microsoft Installation Pack for MSOffice XP.

Incase you have a CD for Office XP and that particular file is corrup, you can download the same from the following link:
http://brianmedavoy.com/Office%20XP/Proplus.msi

Similarly you can download all the files of the Office XP disk from this link:

Does anyone have clue about the " Pro.Msi" File


An .msi file is a database of all the files, settings, and configuration information for the associated application. When you install Office on your computer, the .msi file is saved in a hidden folder. Without this file, Windows Installer cannot update your configuration, install optional features, or apply software updates. Office cannot be installed, repaired, or updated if the .msi file is not found.
Why is the .msi file missing? The most likely reason for Windows Installer to require the installation CD is because the saved version of the .msi file for Office has been inadvertently or deliberately deleted from your computer. It is also possible that the file is damaged or corrupted.
Occasionally, changing the drive letters associated with partitions on your hard disk can cause this problem to occur — such as changing drive C: to a different letter or moving the hard disk drive from one computer to another. Other possible causes are a damaged or corrupted hard disk or registry file.
What to do when prompted for a missing .msi file If you are prompted for the location of a missing .msi file, you must provide the original installation CD used to install Office on your computer.
  1. Make sure that you have inserted your Office installation CD into the CD drive of your computer. If you installed Office from a network, browse to the network location from which you installed Office.
  2. Click Retry.
In most cases, these steps should resolve the problem and Office can complete the installation and configuration of the needed component.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050011033I don't have the installation CD
Without the installation CD — or for computers purchased from companies such as Dell, HP, Compaq, or Gateway — you need to provide a repair CD to reset the installation created for your computer by the manufacturer. For information on how to apply the repair or installation CDs, you might need to contact the support representatives of your computer supplier.
In many cases, the files that you need are compressed on the repair CD and must be run by using a special program provided by the computer manufacturer. In some cases, the computer manufacturers might have customized the .msi file or changed the file name.
In situations where you cannot obtain the installation CD, your options are the following:
  • Continue with the existing installation of Office without updating. This is not recommended. Your documents and computer might become compromised from security threats.
  • Remove the installation and reinstall Office by using another installation CD. Removing the previous installation may not be possible in severely damaged systems where the registry is corrupt.
  • Run a repair CD provided by the computer manufacturer. For information on how to apply the repair CD, you might have to contact the computer manufacturer or consult the documentation provided with the computer.
If you do not know which version of Office you have installed, the name of the .msi file requested indicates the Office version you have. A table that correlates .msi files to Office versions is provided later in this article.
Office 2003, Office XP, and Office 2000 provide the Detect and Repair command. You can find the Detect and Repair command on the Help menu of almost all Office programs. Using this command corrects identifiable problems such as missing files, corrupt files, registry omissions, or damaged registry entries. It replaces the .msi file if it was deleted, damaged, or is the wrong version. Using the Detect and Repair command usually requires you to provide the installation CD for the version of Office currently installed on your computer.
default.aspx?assetid=za011526611033 How to prevent similar problems in the future To help avoid this problem in the future, use the following guidelines:
  • Do not delete hidden folders or files from any drives on your computer.
  • Do not move drives or change their disk identifier (for example, C: to D:).
  • Install all needed applications as Run from My Computer instead of using Install on Demand (available from custom installation within Setup).
  • Occasionally run the Windows Disk Defragment program to repair cross-linked files, recover lost clusters, and remap bad sectors on your hard disk. Any data present in a bad portion of the hard disk is usually lost and commonly associated with physical damage to the disk. This is most likely the result of high-vibration environments, such as the computer being struck, dropped, or kicked.
If you have Microsoft Windows XP as your operating system, consider using the System Restore option to restore your system to a previous configuration. Consult the Help and Support option of Windows XP for more information on System Restore.
Office 2003 .msi files If you do not know which version of Office you have installed, the name of the .msi file requested indicates the Office version you have. The following tables tell which .msi files go with which Office versions.
File name Description accessed.msi Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions mui.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack (one for each language) muiwiz.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack owc11.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components prjmuicwz.msi Microsoft Office Project 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack Wizard prjstde.msi Microsoft Office Project Standard 2003 pro11.msi Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 projproe.msi Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003 ptk.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Proofing Tools sbe11.msi Microsoft Office Small Business Edition 2003 vismuiwz.msi Microsoft Office Visio 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack Wizard visprolmxi.msi Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2003 Office XP .msi files File name Description dao.msi Microsoft Data Access Object (DAO) lpk.msi Microsoft Office XP User Interface Pack (one for each language) lpkwiz.msi Microsoft Office XP User Interface Pack Wizard ork.msi Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit pro.msi Microsoft Office XP Professional Edition proplus.msi Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage Edition ptk.msi Microsoft Office XP Proofing Tool Kit pub.msi Microsoft Publisher 2002 sbe.msi Microsoft Office XP Small Business Edition std.msi Microsoft Office XP Standard stdedut.msi Microsoft Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers owc10.msi Microsoft Office XP Web Components Office 2000 .msi files File name Description data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Premium Edition (all Office products) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Professional Edition (similar to Premium but does not include Microsoft PhotoDraw) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business Edition (includes Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Outlook) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Standard Edition (includes Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and Outlook) data2.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Disc 2 (includes Small Business Tools and Publisher) msowc.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Web Components orkdata.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Resource Kit proofkit.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Toolkit Note In Office 2000, the file name data1.msi does not clearly identify which version of Office you have. In this case, you need to inventory the installation of Office programs on your computer by examining your Start menu entries or click Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and scan through the list of entries to determine the version of Office that is installed.

To Download MSI file of Office Xp


Hi,

Office 2003, Office XP, and Office 2000 provide the Detect and Repair command. You can find the Detect and Repair command on the Help menu of almost all Office programs. Using this command corrects identifiable problems such as missing files, corrupt files, registry omissions, or damaged registry entries. It replaces the .msi file if it was deleted, damaged, or is the wrong version. Using the Detect and Repair command usually requires you to provide the installation CD for the version of Office currently installed on your computer.

I am wondering if you went to Help? And did you click the arrows to see more options? It is there you will see the Detect and Repair. Once you click on that, it should find and/or repair the missing file(s).

If that didn't work, you could always uninstall and reinstall MS Office.

Hope this helps

Is that CD an upgrade version? It will work only with a previously installed Office 2003, maybe. This one is cheaper. The full install version doesn't upgrade the previous one and does install on a PC which never had an Office. 
So, try uninstalling the previous Office and then install. If it doesn't install, then buy a full version of 2007.

Problems installing ms office pro 2007


hi Error 1706 is a Microsoft error that is sometimes generated when you install a Windows package from some form of removable data. Examples of removable data would be a CD-ROM or a DVD. Typically, the exact text of Error 1706 will include the phrase "no valid source could be found."
One of the usual causes of this problem is that the Windows Installer or MSI file is not residing in the root folder of the media that is found on the removable data. This does not mean that the MSI file is not somewhere on the media -- just that it is not in the folder that your system is checking. While, in most cases, the Media Package Path would be altered to create a clear path to the MSI file.

thank you

Deleted Program on accident....help?


Hi Jacie316

Ok, OOPS!, The only way you're going to be able to access your word files again is to re-install MS Office. I suggest you leave it as it is, and reinstall MS-Office when you get home or try to get a copy of MS Office, because that is the only way to access your files. No need to format your laptop though. Just reinstall MS Office. and everything should be fine again. I f you just need MS Word, then when you reinstall MS-Office again, choose manual installation and untick all other installations except MS Word. In that way you do not need to reinstall the complete MS-Office but instead, just MS Word.

Hope I helped.

Unable to install ms office 2007, upgrading from Office 2003


Hi,
please first uninstall all the existing versions of MS Office. Then try to clean temporary files, cache and registry using tools like cCleaner (freely availavle), then install MS Office.

if you want to install only MS Office 2007, no need to install MS office 2003 and upgrade. directly install MS Office 2007.

If you want to keep both, pleas install MS office 2003 first, then MS office 2007, please dont uograde it, rather select Keep both version.

Please make sure that you have admin permission before doing all this and your system is free from any virus.
Thanks

Adobe Acrobat 8 does not integrate with MS Office 2007 programs


Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both Acrobat 6.0 and then Acrobat 7.0, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those related files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)

Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
