I built a test bed system for a potential (large) customer. They insisted on Win2000 so I installed Release Candidate 2. All hardware was picked from the HCL (White box system). Everything is working fine (hardware)and no application programs were installed. I attempted to install Office 2000 Pro. It would launch the "installer" and get as far as asking "default or Custom. " Immediately after that (no matter what you answered) you would a message "Installer has closed due to a failure." No error code is given. As a test I installed Office 97. No problem, works fine except no matter who is logged on it tells you that you allready have that file open and asks to make a copy. If you say no, it takes you into the application which proceeds to work fine.
