Do you keep getting the annoying windows installer keeps popuping up asking for "SKU011.cab" file when ever you open any product of the Microsoft Office 2003 Suite (Office, Excel, Outlook ...)? Here is a quick fix which actually worked

Caution: Editing your registry may cause your system to fail to start; modify at your own risk! So please don't send me any nasty messages if you happen to screw anything up.

  • Click on "Start" > "Run" and type "regedit" (without the quotes, please!).

  • Navigate to the following registry key 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Delivery\DownloadCode

  • On the right-side of the editor you'll see "CDCache". Double click on "CDCache" and change the value to 0.

That should do the trick!

I dont have the cd's of Microsoft Officie Edition 2003. I always enjoy learning what other people think about Amazon Web Services and how they use them. Check out my very own tool CloudBerry Explorer that helps to manage S3 on Windows.,,,

This is a great step forward (or should that be backward) for Microsoft in that its user community, especially those in the corporate world, was most upset by the omission of the VBA in Mac:Office 2008.VBA is the scripting language that drives services like macros across the Microsoft Office suite. It was reportedly too much work to make it work in Mac:Office....

Does this work for 2003 Professional? Also, the only problem is with the Word program and this error. Should I do something different?
