    I am getting the following error when I try to reinstall a custom setup office XP install on a windows 2000 machine.

    "OFFXP: Setup Detects Office XP Running When You Attempt to Install Office XP"

    I had the uninstall the office xp on this machine through add/remove programs because it was crashing alot. The custom install works fine on all other windows 2000 and xp machines.

    I found the following error in MS knowledgebase
    article 292497 (I can't post the link because I'm a new member)

    It says to to hit ignore. If I hit ignore it does install but it doesn't install with the correct options for the custom install. (I have it set to not install outlook and it installs outlook, etc.) Obviously its not following the custom install.

    Any ideas? I believe something is left on the pc from office when it was installed. I even ran the Removal Wizard on the Office XP Resource kit. It is supposed to remove everything left from previous versions. However, it must be missing something because I am still getting that error when I try to reinstall Office XP that is described above.

    ThankS!
