    off2003 pro setup fails

    I can't repair/reinstall/uninstall office 2003. I've attached the setup logs. Somebody translate them into what to do to fix this, please.

    Cash: Here ya go. And I don't know. f**k Microsoft.

    Update:
    I went to office update, and installation of the update failed. The troubleshooter listed, among others, missing install path data in the registry.

    Here's the amazing part: Their suggested fix actually worked!
    Thanks for the help, cash.

    Doesn't seem to have it yet.

    Since when? You don't validate\register, it expires.

    i dont mean about the Trial/Demo of Office which (i think) has a time-bomb or something, but the full Product.

    Just like XP now has Genuine Validation (you have to pass it to get all the updates), i heard they are developing GV for Office as well, and asked if it had been implemented yet, before i start trying to download all the patches.

    I meant the full product, too, but as to GV, this is Microsoft, AKA the 800-lb gorilla. So a. It's a crapshoot, and b. If they haven't yet, they will (the doity bastids).
