If you're going to install Office 2003 on a Windows 2000 computer, you will need to install Windows Service Pack 4 before upgrading. This Service pack is available on the latest Scout CD (with the date March, 2004 on the CD; sent in the March 5, 2004 transmittal packet).
To access the service pack, insert the CD (do not run Scout); open the folder labeled 'Other'; open the folder labeled 'Win2000 SP4.' Double-click on the file, W2KSP4_EN.EXE
You must be logged in as Administrator to do this.
To tell if you need to upgrade to Service Pack 4, on a Windows 2000 machine:
Once you've installed Service Pack 4, you can upgrade to Office 2003.
Any time you are upgrading or installing programs, it's a good idea to have an up-to-date backup of all your important files.Posted by dcoates at March 23, 2004 08:46 AM
