When I try to install the office 2003 SP 1 (or 2 or 3) on a Virtual PC (2007) instance (using XP as OS) I get the message that it cannot get installed because Office 2003 is not installed. But of course I have installed Office 2003!!
I thought this was a Virtual PC 2007 related problem but I got the exact same behavior when I used VM Server i.e. a totally different virtualization product. So it must have something to do with the SP.
Then I thought that I could solve it by installing office 2003 on the host of the virtual instance (as well) to "trick" the Office 2003 SP 1 installer. But of course that did not work either.
How do I solve this?
