Issue that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • Consider the following scenario. User A logs on to a computer and runs the Disk Cleanup utility. Then, User B logs on to the computer and tries to start an Office 2003 program. In this scenario, User B receives the following error message if the Office Setup files were removed when the Disk Cleanup utility was run:
    Error 1309. Error reading from file: path\filename.cab. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.
    Occasionally, User B may receive the following error message even if the Office Setup files were not removed when the Disk Cleanup utility was run:
    Error 39: Cannot find DAT file.
    This issue may occur if the MSOCache folder for Office 2003 programs is not located on the drive on which the Disk Cleanup utility was run.
