This issue occurs when the Local Installation Source configuration contains a logical drive value for your computer that is not valid.


Before you try to install Office 2003, check to see if the MSOCache folder exists. If it exists, you must move it to the location that is specified by the LocalCacheDrive registry subkey. To do this, use the Office 2003 Local Installation Source Tool (LISTool.exe).

For more information about the Office 2003 Local Installation Source Tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Note We recommend that you contact your network administrator before you start this process.
