Cannot repair or Remove Office XP




I had a hard disk failure.

I Restored my system from a backup but office xp reports it is not properly
installed whenever I start Word or Excel.

I am running XP Pro as the O/S. The installer ver. is >2.0 and have applied
previously the service packs incl sp 2 to officexp

Office XP is small business ed. OEM.

When I run Setup for Office, or run change or remove from control panel add
remove hardware for Office XP I receive the following error message:

This patch package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to
verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package.

I have found 2 articles on the Microsoft Support dealing with this issue
(Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 295823 & 290301) but since my version
of installer is >2.0 the solutions presented there do not work.

Your help is requested.
