Error Uninstalling Office 2000 on a Terminal Server

August 21, 2009 Leave a comment

Description – When removing Office 2000 from a Terminal Server running in application mode you receive an error that says, “Some default settings in Microsoft Office 2000 setup do not work properly on a Windows Terminal Server. To install Office on Terminal Server, you must use the instructions and tools available in your Office 2000 Resource Kit or at http://www.microsoft.com/Office/ORK.” You may also receive this error when users try to run one of the Office applications.

Cause – Office was installed prior to the Terminal Server being switched to run in application mode and the Terminal Server transform was not used.

Solution – Manually remove Office 2000 then reinstall.

  • Download & install the Office 2000 Resource Kit.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/b/3/6b34f4c7-44e6-4d85-91d9-1acf9479da7d/orktools.exe

  • Browse to C:\Program Files\ORKTools\ToolBox\Tools\Office Removal Wizard & run OFFCLN9.EXE.
  • Delete any remaining Office folders such as C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office.
  • Download & install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

  • Run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility & remove the Office 2000 entry.
  • Copy the TermSrvr.mst file from C:\Program Files\ORKTools\ToolBox\Tools\Terminal Server Tools to the location of the Office 2000 setup files.
  • Click Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Add New Programs.
  • Browse to the location of the Office 2000 setup files & run setup.exe using the transform file.
    • \\<servername>\<share>\SETUP.EXE TRANSFORMS=\\<servername>\<share>\TermSrvr.mst

Can’t Set Default Printer

August 1, 2009 Leave a comment

Description – When trying to set a default printer nothing happens. You may even notice that there is no default printer.
Cause – Corrupt registry entries.
Solution – Open the registry logged in as the user. (You may have to temporarily give the user admin privileges so they can access the registry.) Browse to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion. Is there a Windows key? If not add one. Now reboot.
