I am trying to install Office 2000 premium on my laptop that has Windows XP Professional. I keep getting a an error, something like this:

"file error: c:\windows\system32\ven2232.olb. verify the file exists and that you can access it"

Can anyone help? I can't install Office 2000 without making sure Windows can locate the file, it seems like.

clean your CD and drive first
by ac415 / May 5, 2005 1:31 PM PDT

sound like your CD ROM cannot read some files from the CD. see if you can use another one (if there is another one) or cleaning the CD. if that doesnt work. Try copy the whole CD to your HD and install it from the HD. Also, its always wise to have all the update from Windows XP before you do any installation of software.

when you went into Explorer to see if the named file existed and you had read access to it?
