Everytime I try to install Office 97 this error comes up: demsg.dll was unable to register itself in the system directory. What do I have to do to register it in the system directory. I'm not up on all the computer jargon. I would appreciate any help I can get. This is a legal copy of Office 97
Thanks Sandy

Hi Sandy,

I am having a huge problem finding anything on demsg.dll. Is it possible that you have copied the file name down incorrectly?


Can you try it again, and this time write down the complete error message?

When I install Office 97, the error "olemsg.dll was unable to register itself in the system registry" appears at the end of installation. I'm sorry that I mistakenly thought olemsg was demsg I tried putting the file in the Program files/Microsoft office /office from the disk. I did this by copy and paste. Maybe there is somewhere else I need to put it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks for your help

I got everything to install, but Microsoft Outlook. Everytime I try to install it in maintenance mode, the error comes up again. I'm using Windows XP so the suggestions about 95 doesn't work. I installed excluding Microsoft Outlook and the error didn't come up. I couldn't find LOAD= And RUN= in The win.ini file. I couldn't find the standard VGA Video Driver in Windows XP. I am very happy that part of it has installed. Do I need this component to use office. I want to upgrade to office xp. Will this make it impossibe.
Thanks Sandy:)

If you intend to upgrade to office XP, there is no problem
provided you have at least 1 of the 97 components, for example word 97, on your machine with a legal licence then Xp will upgrade

you can then install outlook if you want it.

I prefer Outlook express to outlook as an email program anyway and refuse to install outlook as it doesn't suit me or my requirements.

you don't have to do a complete install of office and you can only install what programs you need or will use

I use word, excel, access

I do not use or install outlook or powerpoint as I have no need for them
