When I try to 'Add/Remove Windows Components (from Settings/ContPan/Add Remove Programs) I get:
"Setup unable to open file netoc.inf. Contact Sytem Admin. Error code is Ox2 at line 2085613748"
If it's not one thing its another....

Er, I'm not sure what you mean. Im trying to remove 'script debugger' from my W2000 components, and I get that above msg.

I posted another ??? on the Business Apps Forum, concerning install/uninstall Off XP. That seems to have been fixed by deleting 5 "MS installer patches" from the registry...

Thanks, TW56, but that doesn't help. I can't even get that far!
I can't open the "Windows Component Wizard".
When I try,
(Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components)
I get this error message:
("Setup unable to open file netoc.inf... Error code is Ox2 at line 2085613748")

You may need to find a similar PC and copy the netoc.inf file to replace the one either bad or missing from your PC.

Are you using OfficeXP or 2000? You mentioned 2k in the original post and then officeXP later. Anyway, put the Office CD in and run setup. It will detect that some components are installed and give you the option of Remove All, Add/Remove Components or Re-install. Choose Add/Remove Components.
