SYMPTOMS

When you install Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2007, or Microsoft Office 2003, the Setup program removes all the standard components from Microsoft Office XP that were installed on your computer. This includes the Microsoft Photo Editor program.

CAUSE

Microsoft has replaced Photo Editor with Microsoft Office Picture Manager, a new photo editing and cataloging program in Office 2010, in Office 2007, and in Office 2003.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, reinstall Photo Editor. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Microsoft Office XP CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
  2. If the Office XP Setup program does not start automatically, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type drive:\Setup.exe, where drive is the letter of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
  3. Start to step through the Setup process, and then select Customize for the type of Setup to perform.
  4. When you reach the Selecting Features step, set each node of the Setup tree to Not Available.
  5. Under Features to install, expand Office Tools.
  6. Click Microsoft Photo Editor, and then click Run from My Computer.
  7. Click Install Now.
  8. Click OK when Office XP Setup has completed successfully.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
