Re: [Tip] Office 97 doesn't install in Windows XP - htmlmarq.ocx

I believe it is SP1 to start with and then I added the SP3 update. No problems with that.

As to any other updates I think I installed one other one. A security update from 9/3/03.
Then again I'm not sure as my Win 7 install on this desktop is from December 2010 and on my newest Dell notebook from Dec 2011. Along with all my programs installed at the same time. To long ago to remember. And as everything is working fine there is no need for me to check by doing a reinstall to find out.

Interesting...
Did that include installing all the updates afterwards from SR-1 to SP3 and post SP3 updates for Office 2000? I ran into some issue with the updates.

I had/have no problems getting all of Office 2000 working in Win 7. No hacks needed on my systems. But then I do have the MSDN version.

My XP rig runs Office 2000 Service Pack 3.
I was able to get it to work somewhat successfully on Windows 7... but I couldn't remember what needed hacked/patched/modified to get it to run right.
I simply prefer Office 2010 for Windows 7.

And I thought I was the Dinosaur for running Office 2000 on all my computers, and yes it installs and runs on both Win 7 and Win 8.

[Tip] Office 97 doesn't install in Windows XP - htmlmarq.ocx err

when trying to install office 97 in WinXP, it could occur a error displaying a message saying that "htmlmarq.ocx" couldn't be register!

to resolve this problem do the following:
1) run "RegEdit.exe"
2) go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options"
3) delete the keys "htmlmarq.ocx" and "htmlmm.ocx"
4) now install Office 97 wishful without problems

notes:
- if the installation still isn't possible try to disable de antivirus program and even close it because they can block the permissions to delete or change the register or even do the installation of old software
- if still isn't possible to delete the keys the permissions must be changed to allow the user "Full Control" of those keys
- at last if the keys still won't delete there maybe a problem with embedded-null characters - then use "RegDelNull.exe" - a command-line utility that searches and allows you to delete registry keys that contain embedded-null characters that are otherwise undeletable using the standard methods mention above!

(it took me 5 hours to figure this out!)
