Office 2003 Error - Operating System Is Not Presently Configured

Office 2003 error message: the operating system is not presently configured to run this application. My old xp computer quit and i have purchased a new new computer, hp pavilion p6210f, running windows 7. I moved the old hard drive (now drive f) containing my old programs including a legal copy of office 2003. Most of the old programs work, but when i try to load an office 2003 app, i get this error message. I can't reload office as i have moved twice in the last year and can't locate my office disks and product key (along with about 50 other program disks all in the same binder). Any suggestions?

Information On An Operating System

What is windows automotive vs windows ce.

Is windows automotive a development platform built ontop of ce?
Is windows automotive a os all to itself but built on ce?

Pioneer's avic z110bt usb can only read up to 16 gigs of memory, except the ipod which it will read unlimited amounts of data. Is this a hardware issue with the unit? None of their previous units had this problem and this is their brand new flagship model. This system recently switched to the windows automotive 5. 5 os, all other models used windows ce. Is there anything about windows automotive that could explain this?

Operating System Not Found

We were running window server 2008, yesterday when we shut down the server everything was working find, the shut down was normal and nothing unusual happened. This morning when we start the server, the screen was black and only "operating system not found" appeared on the screen. When we reboot, entered bios setup, the disk at sata 0 was reset to "none", we tried to select "auto" and the system not able to read the disk info. We tried using system repair (setup disk) to recover but unsuccessful.

There was no way we can access to the system disk? What is happening to the disk? We did not perform anything on the disk and it was working properly yesterday. We have important data inside, hope anybody can help let us know how to resolve the operating system problem or at least recover the data from the disk. We are worried that the hard disk was permanently damaged.

Operating System Can Not Be Found

I have a sony vaio laptop (less than 2 years old) with a windows vista operating system. Every night i put it in sleep mode and leave it for the night. So, i did so last night, and this afternoon, after getting out of school, i pressed the space bar to bring it out of sleep mode. The back-light came on, but the screen stayed dark, and it started making a tapping-like sound for about 10 seconds.

After that, it went into dos mode with the message, "operating system can not be found". So i held down the power button to completely shut it off, left it off for 10 seconds or so then turned it back on. It did the same "tapping thing" then the same message appeared.

I then assumed it had crashed and i'd have to get a new operating system or something equally expensive. But about 20 minutes later, just to see, i turned it off one more time and turned it back on, and incredibly, it gave me the system recovery screen or whatever, with the different options to start it up again, then started up as usual. I have no idea what would cause it to do this and definitely don't want it to happen again. Is there anything i can/should do to prevent this?

Operating System Disappear

I installed the windows 7 upgrade from vista on saturday february 20, 2010. First off i backed everything up on to my external hard drive that was working fine until i used windows backup from my vista operating system, now it too is a brick, and i have lost all my pictures of my kids that i have backed up on there for 2. 5 years now. Now, i installed windows 7 trying to get away all the problems with vista, and its telling me after a week that no operating system is found.

I had just put some pictures on the computer from my digital camera, and i'm going to lose those too now. I want to know how to resolve this issue asap. I am not able to afford another $2000 for a new laptop, and i want my operating system that i just paid $120 dollars for to work.

Failed To Load Operating System

Windows 7 wont start, sometimes as if it's not there anymore, my cpu is an intel i7 860 with gpu nvidia gtx275 and 4gb of ram. It's pretty new and not even a year old yet. Overall it's not a bad computer. Anyway, like a week ago it started lagging some, then it got worse after a few days. The hdd light is always showing and i can hear the computer working hard as if i'm running many programs at once. But my from my task manager , i can see that the cpu speed is like lower than 5% and the ram like 30% which is normal. Sometimes the lag is gone and sometimes it's back.

When it happens, even when when i watch videos, the videos lag. Then later, my computer start restarts on its own. On one of the restart, after post , the desktop computer runschkdsk or something like that, that scans the c: drive for errors , i think, and i let it do that. And i can still go into the computer after. But it just goes downhill. The restarts became more often and the 'starting windows ' screen at start became longer and longer. After another restart, there was 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' i cant remember if thats exactly what they are called.

I run system recovery tools and restart after that and i can still come back into the computer. I run myavast! Anti-virus program to check for virus but there isn't any. I have also tried to usesystem restore but there isn't any restore points created, which is unusual because there was always some restore points. After yet another restart later, i couldn't get back into the computer anymore. After post , at the screen of 'loading operating system . ', instead of going to 'starting windows ', it say something like 'failed to load operating system, insert the cd into cd/dvd drive '.

Sorry, i am not very good at recalling stuff. But i do not have the cd, windows 7 was installed in the pc before i bought it. So i reset the computer and it came up with 'windows error recovery ' and i have the 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' like before, but this time after i use the first option, it just stops at a blank screen and nothing else.

I reset the computer again and i chose the second opting and it does nothing again (just stops at the blank screen). I keep trying to turn off and restart my computer several times now. After that, it will came up with one of these every time now : 1) insert cd 2) windows error recovery 3) it will go on to 'starting windows ' but blank screen after that.

Operating System Not Found At Startup

I have a samsung and a dell laptop both with win 7 if i leave the samsung for a length of time sometimes when i come back i get the error above operating system not found and have to reboot. On the dell occasionally if i leave it for sometime it has also crashed but with a completely blank screen. I think when the screen turns off this causes a crash so i have set the screen to never turn off in power settings. Too early to tell if this is the cause but i don't think it's a hardware issue.

Win 7 Will Not Boot - Operating System Not Found

I installed windows 7 on october 27, 2009 (previously had vista) and it was working great. Then about three days after christmas my computer froze and said, "operating system not found. " I then proceeded to take the my computer to where i had initially purchased it, bestbuy. After there geek squad looked at it they informed me that in all likelihood i had a bad motherboard. I purchased a new laptop from them and had them back up my old files onto my portable hdd and was on my way. I then decided that i might as well see if there was anything that i could do to get the old laptop working. I called hp (the manufacturer of my old laptop) and was told that it could possibly be the sata ii connection on my motherboard that was bad.

So, i got an enclosure for the old hdd and plugged it into the usb port on the old laptop. I went into the boot order and set it up to run the usb hard drive first and it would actually get to the windows loading screen! But that was as far as i could get. It would then go to a blue error screen 0x0000007b, telling me to check for viruses and such. I then tried to run system recovery and it was unable to repair it. This is what it told me:

Problem event name : startuprepairoffline
Problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 03: unknown
Problem signature 04: 10674684
Problem signature 05: autofailover
Problem signature 06: 1
Problem signature 07: norootcause
Pos version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1
Locale id: 1033

I have tried to run the windows 7 upgrade disc but to no avail either. I would really like to save my old computer if i can but i don't know what else to do. Please help me!

2.0 Net Framework Error - Cannot Install On A 64-bit Operating System

Neighbor purchased a dell inspron 400 (zinohd): amd athlon2850e (1. 8ghz, 512k), 3gb ddr2 sdram at 800mhz, 320gb serial ata hard drive (7200rpm), windows 7, service tag 2858hk1
 
He had a number of problems that i have helped him cure. But one issue remains. Each time he turns on the computer he gets a notification that he needs to load and run .net framework 2. 0. However, when he goes to the referenced site and tries to download and run the program he gets an error message stating: "error: cannot install on a 64 bit operating system. " Ignoring this message doesnt appear to adversely affect the operation of the system but he has not used the computer for long and he fears there may be issues downstream.
 
He is an older gentleman, not at all computer savy and has been very frustrated by this and his inability to get help from dell or microsoft. He is considering returning the product.
 
In an effort to help him out, i have looked into this problem through the internet. I am an experienced pc user and can normally handle most issues like this but im not yet familiar with windows 7. I understand that windows 7 includes the .net framework 3. 5. 1 as an os component. I believe this means you will get the .net framework 2. 0 sp2, 3. 0 sp2 and 3. 5 sp1 plus a few post 3. 5 sp1 bug fixes.

Thus, you don't need to manually download .net framework 2. 0 and install it on windows 7. I have run the verification tool found on the internet by searching cannot install on a 64 bit operating system " 2. 0 net framework on google to verify the existence of these .net framework versions. The all are verified successfully. How can we eliminate the initial popup notification from appearing at power-on? What am i missing?

Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

Running windows xp media center edition 2005. I have office 2003 professional. Today, 7 june 09, apparently there were a lot of updates not only to xp but office as well. The .net and silverlight was just a couple of them. Anyway, after that, i rebooted as instructed but now i get an error when i try and reply to someone that has sent me an email. It states :  "the message interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists try restarting outlook. "

I have restarted outlook 2003 several times and i get the same error. I haven't changed my email account or anything (it seems) that would cause it not to operate properly as it had for the last year. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft Office Outlook Malfunctioning

After microsoft automatic update, outlook in vista has stopped working properly. I can open program, write an e-mail or two, and may be able to forward one mail, then program freezes. This happened right after an overnight update. How do i fix this problem without taking away the new updates ? Or stopping automatic updates for the future. Also automatic updates changed all my internet home pages. This was very upsetting. Why? I still have firefox but all my settings got erased. That was not ok with me. I have given permission to do automatic updates to programs but not to reset my personal
Settings. How can i prevent this in the future?

Microsoft Office Xp 2002 Compatibility

I am having problems using my old office xp standard 2002 disc from my old xp computer with my new windows 7 computer. Excel is missing some functions like the summation symbol on the toolbar which allows me to add numbers quickly. In fact, when i try to reload this office xp disc, microsoft says the product key i entered does not exist.

Best buy (where i purchased the computer in january 2010) tells me i need to buy a later microsoft office disc specifically for windows 7 for about $150 otherwise some things will probably never work correctly and i might even mess up the operating system. But some internet forums say just upgrade to office 2003 and all will be fine, except maybe outlook which i never use.

Microsoft Office Home And Student 2007

I just bought a new dell laptop with windows 7 and microsoft office home and student, both installed by dell. When i attempt to get into word i get a message telling my that i have to insert a 25 digit product key. I then found a 25 digit product key on the cd dell provided me and made 5 attempts to type it in the message; but it tells me that it is the wrong product key. I went into help and reached a spot containing word info. It had the words "product key" listed but there were no digits following. I'm really concerned because the message also told me that i will only get 25 chances to enter the product key.

Stopping Microsoft Office Updates Offer

Os: windows 7 home premium 64-bit my computer came preloaded with a trial of microsoft office home and student 2007. I have since uninstalled it. Even though it is no longer installed on my machine, windows update continues to pester me with office updates i do not want or need. I have all updates installed, even a handful of earlier office updates from when i did have the software installed. Since i no longer have office, i have no use for any more updates to it. Therefore i would like to know how to stop this incessant nagging to update office. I would appreciate a real helpful response and not just an irrelevant copy-paste auto-response.

Microsoft Office Pro What Version 64-bit?

I am upgrading to window 7. I just got my computer back from hp repair. Due to the repairs all of the software applications had been removed. The computer came with vista and a free upgrade from hp. I just upgraded to windows 7. Now i need to download my application software and i am starting with my microsoft office professional. I tried to go on the compatibility checker to make sure that the microsoft professional 2007 is compatible.

In checking, the microsoft website says that office professional version 12 is compatible with my 64 bit system. Where do i find my version? I have the original packaging from the store but cannot seem to find the version. How can i make sure it is compatible with a 64 bit system?

Microsoft Office 2007 Error During Setup

I got the error in the title of this but no other errors. None of the kb articles was relevant.

I fixed it by removing anything related to the microsoft office document converter that allowed me to open docx and xlsx file.

I uninstalled the microsoft office document converter but that failed so i had to use the windows installer clean-up utility to remove it.

I deleted everything from the program file/microsoft office/12. 0 folder. In my case there was some visual studio stuff there which i left in place.

I also deleted the keys in hkey_classes_rootinstallerproducts which ended in 01fec (for example 000021091a0090400000000000f01fec) which were related to office 2007.

Product Code For Microsoft Office Word

For christmas of 2009, i was given a brand new toshiba laptop. I was so happy. But recently, i've noticed that i can't use word, due to no product key. This is a major problem for me, as i'm currently trying to write a book and cannot do such efficiently without using office word. I've checked the box the laptop came in, but there's no sign of anything that would likely help.

I have my windows update turned on to automatically download and inform me when updates are available. I then pick the updates i want installed.

I also am now being told i need to install office 2007 sp2 when i download it and attempt to install it i am told that it is already installed. My copies of office and windows 7 are completely legitimate and bought at the best buy. I had this problem also with vista. I don't understand what is going on.
