the message is "windows files protect".

It is advising me to get the Office XP. Is there a way to bypass this? Hate to spend $400 on Office XP.

Thanks so much for your help.

Can you post the -entire- error message, and when it occurs?

Office 2000 should be fine on XP

During "Installing Microsoft Office 2000", after about 5-8 minutes, I get the following message:

WINDOWS FILE PROTECTION
Windows files must be installed for your installation to proceed.

Insert your Windows XP Professtionl CD-ROM now.


When I insert each of the three Toshiba Recovery and Applications/Drivers CD, I get the message:

The CD you provided is the wrong CD.
Please insert the Windows XP Professional CD-Rom into your drive.


What do I do? Thanks for your help.

first off, the toshiba recovery disks and applications & drivers cd is not your windows xp cd!! what you need to do is to get ahold of a windows xp cd and then when it asks you for it put it in and it will install office 2000. and if you know where to look you can get office xp for free trust me i have it and i didnèt pay a cent. and if you cannèt u might just want to point it to your hard drive it should be on there as well.
