Major instal issue - please help.

I have Money 2002 installed, and have had for some time. About two weeks
ago, I started getting the Windows Installer "preparing to install" message
repeatedly when I open Money, or when the Money Viewer is invoked in IE.
Both Money and the viewer work fine, but no matter if I cancel or ignore the
message, it keeps coming up roughly once every two seconds.

The real issue though is this: since this started happening, I've been
unable to install or uninstall anything else that uses the Windows installer
(including trying to uninstall Money to solve the issue), as it fails saying
that another installation is in progress. This happens even on a clean boot
without starting Money. I've stopped the installer process whenever I find
it in the running processes list, but that does not help.

A repair install of Money does run, but doesn't solve the issue.

Please help - I'm tearing my hair out trying to solve this issue.

OK, managed to find this;

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;823216&Product=mny

from a Google groups search, and so far it seams to have solved my issue.
Why a search the MS knowledge base (tried every way I could think of) didn't
return that document, I'll never know.

Suggestion: RMS New Customer Issue
RMS (any version) When the 'Find Customer' form first comes up, the cursor is in the right place and simply typing and hitting <ENTER> brings up a list. If you can find the customer in the list, you can simply select them by using the arrow keys (or mouse) and hit <ENTER> to set the customer for the new transaction. If the customer is not in the database and a new customer is required, RMS falls flat on its face. SUGGESTION: If a New customer is generated at POS, that customer should AT LEAST become the selected customer in the Find Customer form when you click O...

Problem with running Office:Mac 2008 Installer
I'm curious about what gets installed by the Office 2008 Special Media Edition installer AFTER it runs the installer script near the end that puts icons of the applications in the Dock.

Excel 2000 SP3 printing issue: text is either rotated (each individual letter) or small or not even there
This is regarding Excel 2000 running on a Windows 2000 Professional system. One of my users is having an issue printing from Excel. The document appears to be quite basic, but when she prints it to a color printer (HP CLJ 5500 PS) the letters in the black text are individually rotated 90 degrees, although the string of characters remains horizontal. This does not affect the text that is colored red, only the black text, strangely not all of it, like there is a heading on the chart, and that is fine, but doesn't appear to be any different than the rest of the text. When she prints to a B...

Exchange 2003 - OWA - Japanese
Hi all, I have an Exchange mailbox which is only ever accessed via OWA. Whenever we receive an email in Japanese, on "first reading" it appears correctly with all the correct characters etc. Once it has been previewed/clicked once, and then clicked away from, when we reclick onto that email, the characters are now all garbled. If we forward the email onto a non-Exchange account, still garbled. If we view using another web browser, still garbled.
