Repairing Office 2003 Installations

Microsoft Office 2003 allows users to manually repair an installation if there is any concern that the current installation is not functioning properly. Office can also automatically repair itself if it detects a corrupt component or application, and if the core files of each application have not been deleted or damaged. A library of file names maintained in the registry helps the detection system determine what files should be replaced when a specific application or component cannot be started. If required, Office calls Windows Installer and reinstalls only the affected files and registry entries.

Repairing Office installations manually

Users and administrators have the option of repairing an installation of Office 2003 to its original installation configuration by using the Detect and Repair feature.
