Hello,

I have a laptop from work that has office pro 2003 on it. It worked
fine until I installed windows activesync for my mobile device. Since
I was having problems with the activesync cd version, I uninstalled it
but then when opening MS outlook 2003 I got the error message:
"Installation error: file not found. A required installation file
SKU001.CAB could not be found..." after which I hit cancel. I thought
uninstall of activesync deleted this file so I went to the
windowsmobile site to download the latest activesync program and
installed it, hoping that this would solve the problem. It did. No
more missing file message. Today I wanted to open an excel file and I
got the missing file message again (same SKU001.CAB file). Since I do
not own office 2003 (the laptop and all junk that's on it is from my
work, remember) I had to download a pirated office pro 2003 copy from
the internet to be able to put the cd in after which the SKU001.CAB
file seemed to install but now I get a ZF612702.CAB missing file
message which doesn't install from the office cd! Can one of you
geniuses here help me out please?

Thanks

Found the solution somewhere else. Go to
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=57E27A97-2DB6-4654-9DB6-EC7D5B4DD867&displaylang=en
and download the 110MB file at the bottom of the page that's called
Office2003SP2-KB887616-FullFile-ENU.exe. Insert the office pro 2003 cd
into the drive, double-click the installer you just downloaded, click
run and then cancel the setup! Now I can open all office applications
without a missing file message.

I don't have a clue why it seems solved now and I don't know what
caused this problem but I guess MS wants to keep us all busy working
on problems.
