When you use the resiliency feature of Office 2000 and run Office 2000 from a network location, backup servers that are configured to run in the event that the primary server is unavailable may not be used by clients when the primary server is unavailable.
This is a bug in the Windows Installer.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
