SETUP.INI file missing or invalid
I am having a Windows XP laptop which was running with Office 2003. Due to some problem I required to uninstall the same from Add and remove programs. Now when I’m trying to install Office 2003 again with the same CD, it is giving me an error saying “Setup.ini file missing or invalid.”
I tried to restart my system several times but that doesn’t seem working. Can any one of you please help me out here ?
RE: SETUP.INI file missing or invalid
Possibly while removing the office you might have deleted the setup file hence you getting the same error or there might be some files left from the earlier version that is conflicting with the new installation. Well what you can do here is download and install Windows Installer Cleanup Utility http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301. once installed launch it from Start > programs and see if you can see Office 2003 in the list. If it is there, delete it completely from the system. Now try launching the setup again.
Also try to extract the setup.exe from Entsetup.exe to the root of the Office 2003 install and then run setup.exe /settings Files\Setup\setupstd.ini . See if it works.
