I just recently did an upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows 2000. Everything seemed to transfer over fine. When I joined the domain, I was no longer able to access my Office 2000. I keep getting the error message "This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and you can access it or contact to vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

I looked all over Microsoft and found the Windows Installer Cleanup utility however this only works with versions of installer under 2.0. My installer for this file was 2.0.2.

I went into the registry to delete out the office files but this has not helped either.

Any other ideas???

So you're saying that the problems didn't start until you joined the domain? Are you trying to use Office2k or are you trying to unistall?

I've never had any luck upgrading. I suggest a fresh install using NTFS and install office2k afterwards.

Try reinsalling the Office Suite. Usually irons out any registry issues.
