    I purchased the DELL refurbished PC/XP professional with SP3 the other day because I still love to use XP once awhile, although I have two other PCs with Win 7, respectively.

    The problem is that I can NOT install Word 2000, ....
    error message popping up in the middle of the screen. [​IMG]

    Error: 1305
    Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

    In my guess, there is NO MS word pre-loaded on this, refurbished DELL pc.
    There is no platform to install MS Word 2000?
    All of the PCs are already pre-installed MS 2010 or 2007 upon installation.

    If that's causing the problem, how to make the installation proceed?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    You didn't advise where you bought your refurbished Dell from, and you didn't advise what model name and model number it is.

    I've bought 6 refurbished Dell desktops and laptops in the past year from www.newegg.com and www.overstock.com, and none of them came with a version of Microsoft Office pre-installed.
