Online Editor "calling" for Office 2000

I'm trying to use an online website design editor called soEditor Pro 2.5. When I click the edit button the brown Microsoft Install box comes on and it's calling for me to install a component in Microsoft Office 2000.

I don't have Office 2000 installed - I have Office 2003. I've talked with the folks running the soEditor and they say it must be an Office situation.

Our Office Program at work is 2002 and it will allow me to edit in the soEditor program. But at home with 2003 it always asks me to install something from 2000.

I'm lost - does this sound remotely familiar, has anyone dealt with this before?

Thanks, Joe

Could be proper for your machine. Fix?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 notes a tool I use when I see this issue. I use this tool to remove the old Office 2000 items.

I have no worry of messing up the machine since we can always reinstall Office 2003 later.

Posted in Wrong Forum?

Sorry, I think I put this in the wrong place. I copied it over to the Office Forum.

But - if anyone knows the answer please tell me. :o)
Tks, Joe

Thanks Bob

Thanks Bob, I'll try the tool just as soon as I get home. I don't ever remember having anything related to 2000 on my machine - it's fairly new and I think 2003 was the first Office related program to be installed.

It Worked!!!

Thanks Bob!!!
Installed the cleanup tool and to my surprise I had some version of Office 2000 on there that I didn't even know about.

Took that out and everything works fine.

Can't thank you enough.
