When you attempt to reinstall or repair Microsoft Office 2000, you may receive an error message similar to the following:
The file 'D:\DATA1.MSI' is not a valid installation package for the product Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Premium. Try to find the installation package 'data1.msi' in a folder from which you can install Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Premium.
This behavior occurs if Office 2000 was originally installed on your computer from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) copy of Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business Edition, or a version of Office 2000 other than the version on the CD-ROM that you are attempting to use to repair or reinstall the software.
To resolve this issue, uninstall the existing edition of Office 2000, and then reinstall the program from your CD-ROM. To do this, follow these steps.
NOTE: Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
Remove Office 2000
Reinstall Office 2000
