Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I had Microsoft Office 2007 on my computer, but I needed 2003 for something so I installed it. Later, I tried to open Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 and it always prepares for install, but then I get Error 1308, some file can't be found. Any ideas?

Hello slavena95
I am maybe misunderstanding you but if you are trying to use two different versions of MO on the same computer , this won' t work . If you are not , probably some files or keys of MO 2003 are still remaining in the registry , causing conflicts with MO 2007 .
To correctly and entirely delete a program , you should use a third party program such as the free version of RevoUninstaller from : http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/3000-2096_4-10687648.html
Best regards ,

    Umm... I uninstalled 2003 so I can try to use 2007, but there's still that error. Anyway, I'm going to reinstall 2007. Where can I find it? Is there download on internet or should I borrow it from someone?

    Hi ,
    Probably you already have search here :http://www.restoreguard.com/p/error-1308... or maybe here : p://support.microsoft.com/kb/262465 or again here :http://www.softipblog.com/error-1308-mic...
    As you can see , there are several possibilities . I ' m inclined to follow Softipblog , because thy talk about Microsoft-Publisher , a tool part of Office .
    You could also try scanning for malwares with the free MalWareBytes tool from :http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-An...
    About your question how finding Office 2007 , if you have a valid key , you can download a trial version from Microsoft's and enter the key while registering . You can also borrow the install disc from a friend and use your own key , this remains perfectly legal .
    Have a full clean antivirus and anti malware scan first . I hope this will help you to solve your issue .
    Best regards . fanaudi .

    My computer got broken, and now when it's fixed, MICROSOFT OFFICE 2000(!!!) is installed. Now I miss MS Office 2003. It wasn't that bad, haha :)

Microsoft power point slideshow wont open


Hello,

Your problem is either with your microsoft office installation, microsoft powerpoint installation or the powerpoint slideshow you are trying to open is damaged (or contains macros/virus etc) and thats why is taking long to open or doesn't open at all.

Recommendation #1: Do a repair install of the microsoft office you have now ( 2003 or 2007) You have to go to Control Panel-> Programs and Features-> select MS Office Proffesional 2003 or 2007 and click "repair" on the top bar of th Programs and Features toolbar.

Recommendation #2: In case the powerpoint slideshow is broken, see This link or This for more specific instructions.
