The Apple owner had used their Dell XP OS CD and there were bits and pieces of that on the install CD.
But let's try ONE THING FIRST. Google this -> MICROSOFT INSTALLER CLEANUP UTILITY.
Get that and delete any Office or Small Business entries.
OK, so I know that frustrations are par for the course with pretty much anything MS but I think my first problem is just me not being able to see the woods for the trees. Here it is:
Mac Laptop running OS10.5.7 with a Bootcamp partition with Windows XP (2).
Have just bought the full edition of MS Publisher 2007 (OK, I know that IS dumb but I need to be able to open and work on a Publisher file.) Seemed to install but is now asking me for something called Small Business. Don't have the Windows version of MS Office on the Windows partition as I have the Mac version in OSX.
Why am I having a problem installing Publisher 2007 out of the box?
Any words of wisdom other than dump Publisher and get a life?
