    When running Setup, this message >> This patch package could not be opened.
    Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact
    the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch
    package ... and ... When attempting to open Word, this message comes up >>
    This application must be installed to run. Please run setup from the
    location where you originally installed the application.


    Office 2000 was downloaded to my computer a year ago and I had to reinstall
    it for some reason about a month ago. The messages keep coming up when
    trying to reinstall. Can anyone help in getting around this issue?
