Office 2000 - Installing just one program?

by margyz / December 13, 2008 5:20 AM PST

I am currently running Office 2003 under Windows XP. I need Front Page for a project and do have an Office 2000 from my old, defunct computer that includes Front Page. I would like to install just the Front Page 2000 program but may be going about it wrong - I have tried running setup and de-selecting everything but Front Page but the install program also Outlook 2000, as well. Is there a way I can just install the one program? Appreciate any help!

I've seen that happen.

Never found a real fix. So I installed what I needed and later repaired my Office 2003 install. Go figure.

There is another way but it's a lot of work. Look up Microsoft Virtual PC which is free but it seems like far too much work (about a week?) to install it proper.

It shouldn't install Outlook if you uncheck it.

What happens if you run setup again. It should see Outlook is installed and let you uncheck so it will be uninstalled (choose for something like 'change existing installation' or 'add or remove components'. Then reinstall Outlook 2003 if that was overwritten.

If you use Outlook 2003 and it still works, the extra install of Outlook 2000 isn't really important. If you can't remove it, ignore it. It's only some diskspace that it uses and nothing else.

If you use Outlook 2003 and it doesn't work anymore, try a repair install or a reinstall of Office 2003. That should repair it. And, as above, ignore Outlook 2000.
